This will be music to the ears of Hamilton who told Autosport he ‘didn’t ever plan to drive it again’ He said: “Brakes, bouncing is probably number one, drag is probably number two. Or equal number one. There’s loads of other things. We’ve obviously got some downforce, we just need to build a much more efficient car.
“So I’m looking forward to the end of Tuesday, which is the last time I have to drive this thing. And I don’t ever plan to drive this one again. It won’t be one of the cars that I request to have in a contract!”
Despite Hamilton’s results improving towards the end of the season he described the W13 “like a ghost was in the car” as problems kept returning and he failed to finish the final round at Abu Dhabi.
