The Mercedes driver claims that he is stupefied by the top speed of his rival outfit and there is little he is able to do about it.
Hamilton goes on to state that Red Bull is probably investing a lot more money as compared to Mercedes at the moment.
What did Hamilton say?
“They were three or four-tenths faster. Their speed was unbelievable. I couldn’t do anything,” Hamilton stated.
“I don’t know where they get that speed from. I think everywhere, but especially on the straights.
“They’ve certainly made some pretty big strides in the last few races,” he added.
The Brit is clearly surprised by the progress of the Red Bull RB16B.
Mercedes lacks updates
Hamilton also stated that the Mercedes W12 has begun to trail behind considering there have been almost no updates.
“We haven’t brought any updates. I can’t remember the last time we made improvements. They do,” he said.
“They have improved the engine and also some other parts of the package. That’s what keeps them in front.
“We can’t do much at this speed. We have to keep pushing and I’m confident we’ll find something,” he said.
Budget cap making things interesting
Since the start of this season, all Formula 1 teams have to endure a budget cap.
While the number is $145 million, the teams have to distribute the money to develop their car for 2022.
It is therefore a difficult decision for all teams to decide how they want to spend their money.
“Maybe they [Red Bull] are spending more money than we are. Maybe we are putting more into 2022, I don’t know. I’m not the one who’s about the money,” Hamilton concluded.
With new regulations set for 2022, we can only wait and see how Red Bull responds.
