The current champion said that they had a different approach in Spain.
The seven-time world champion qualified on the track of Catalonia behind his teammate, and the German team has prepared new parts for this occasion. Lewis Hamilton’s race was compromised in the first lap due to contact with Kevin Magnussen, while in the end he had to let his foot off the gas due to certain problems with the car. He added that the W13 is behaving much better this time because the team with new parts managed to solve the problem with bouncing, but that Mercedes this time separated the tactics among its drivers.
“Our cars were different.” said Lewis Hamilton. “We experimented on Georg’s car, which in the end proved to be a better thing to start qualifying and maybe the next race. This is a good sign and direction, and if I hadn’t had this incident, I would have been able to fight Red Bull in the race. “
