“It was entirely my fault,” said Lewis Hamilton after embarrassingly getting knocked out in Qualifying on Saturday. He shouldered the entire blame onto himself, further saying that Mercedes and George Russell did a “great job”. While this seemed like the show of ultimate sportsmanship, Mercedes’ race pace derailed his morale at the Chinese GP.

The 7-time champion started P18 on the grid. But unlike his 2021 Brazil GP P20 to P1 masterclass, this has panned out horrendously. After starting on the Soft tires, Lewis Hamilton struggled massively. “That was the worst tire, man”, he said after his 1st pit stop. But things only got worse. His W15 was stuck behind Esteban Ocon’s tractor of an Alpine, yet, he couldn’t make an overtake.

“I can’t even catch him, mate. This car is so slow,” he exclaimed. And after Valtteri Bottas triggered the Safety Lap, Hamilton then went on a rant. “The car is just sliding around everywhere,” Hamilton said on his team radio. “I don’t know. It just feels like something is broken. It’s probably just this balance. It’s really bad.”
