Mercedes will be stuck with a mediocre F1 automobile for the rest of 2022, according to Hamilton ...

Lewis Hamilton predicts Mercedes will stay with its uncompetitive 2022 F1 design for the rest of the season as he struggles in Canadian Grand Prix practice recognizing the W13 as the best vehicle hes ever had.

Mercedes has faced a difficult year in 2022 in terms of achieving a seven-time world championship.

The team has spent countless hours trying to dial out the porpoising without losing too much performance so that it was mostly unable to unlock the performance it believes is locked within the W13.

During the GP weekend in Azerbaijan, the bouncing was particularly intense, with Hamilton on the verge of suffering up to 10g and suffering from a back injury in the race, as well as his teammate George Russell.

Mercedes and Hamilton once again struggled with the British driver believing the team will be forced to stick with the 2022 design it has, and they will move focus to 2023 already.

Hamilton and 2022 Mercedes are not in Canada''s GP practice.

Hamilton went FP1 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve focusing on constructing an experimental floor on the automobile as Russell was stuck to a more traditional program.

Russell finished seventh on the FP2, with 0.844 votes behind session-leader Max Verstappen.

Hamilton, who labeled the car "undriveable over the radio" by engineer Peter Bonnington, was 13th, 21.994s slower than Verstappen.

Hamilton explained how bad things happened on F1 return to Canada after three years away due to the epidemic after the second session.

Nothing we do to this automobile generally seems to work, so we were testing different structures, according to the author.

Me and George had different sets-ups in P2, to see if one way works and one way fails, so Ill wait to hear how it was for him, but it was a terrible experience.

The automobile is becoming more and more dissatisfied, as much as we do.

Mercedes will be stuck with the floored W13 for the remainder of 2022.

Hamilton said that he believes Mercedes will stay with its zero-sidepod design for the remainder of 2022 rather than going for a major overhaul of design.

As Mercedes seeks to understand and develop this term, there was speculation that the team might return to the launch-spec W13, but this hasn''t been undertaken until the event.

Keep working on it, and it is what it is. I think this is the vehicle for the year.

It is not Montreal I know, that Im now habitual, and that Ive gained in my career, but Hamilton has added at a venue for his first career win in 2007, and has since won in 2010, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2016, 2017, and 2019.

It''s the worst that I''ve ever encountered anywhere on the road, so I am hoping that we can continue to try and make some changes one day.

It''s not just the foundations of the automobile, but it''ll be a task.

Hamilton is currently a leading driver in Formula 1 racing: he is the only driver to have at least one race in every season he has competed.

His last victory and pole position was in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in 2021, and his 103rd on both counts.
