And of course we want to beat them [Red Bull] just like they want to beat us, so it’s going to take a complete team effort to get there, that’s for sure “, confessed Lewis Hamilton in remarks relayed by Nextgen-Auto.

Regarding the new direction we’ve taken, it’s way too early to say we’re optimistic about next year’s car – because we’re only at the beginning of the process. But I have full confidence in the team, I know that it will take the direction it needs to take. We’ve learned a lot over the last two years, so if we haven’t found the solution by next year, obviously we’ll keep working. But I hope that will be the case “, added Lewis Hamilton.
