Lewis Hamilton has ‘spring in his step’ in Melbourne🥺

Baretto reflected that Hamilton looked ‘really down’ after the race in Jeddah, with little optimism over his prospects in the W15.

But he had the air of a ‘different driver’ in the paddock on Thursday and expressed renewed hope for the remainder of the season.

He said: “Lewis was really down in Saudi when he was talking about where the car was.

“There was chatter about how difficult it is to drive.

“Today he seemed like a different driver, he had that spring in his step.

“He had that glint in his eye again. He was suggesting that things maybe aren’t as bad as he was suggesting in Saudi.”

Will Mercedes improve at Australian Grand Prix?

Mercedes are making changes to their car ahead of this weekend after encountering significant issues.

BBC F1’s Harry Benjamin has heard that they will revert to the floor they used in pre-season testing.

The goal is to improve the car’s performance in high-speed corners, which was worse than that of Alpine and Williams in Saudi Arabia.

Director Andrew Shovlin said this week that the aerodynamics department are hard at work on possible fixes.

Hamilton insists that Mercedes have an ‘amazing’ car that is yet to show its full potential.

This was one of the team’s stronger races last year, with Russell and Hamilton qualifying second and third behind Max Verstappen.
