Schumacher Sounds Warning Bells to Lewis Hamilton’s Role in….
Lewis Hamilton has had some bad performances in recent times. However, this week in Imola he consistently found himself around the P13 mark. This has raised some questions about his driving. Ex-F1 driver Ralf Schumacher lead the inquisition. He said, “Of course, we also have to talk about Lewis Hamilton. He has to wonder why George Russell is so much faster than him.”
Ralf added, “A 13th place is of course not what Hamilton is aiming for. He has to admit that Russell is the better driver right now.” Russell went on to finish P4 in the main race and miles ahead of teammate Hamilton, who couldn’t even finish in points.

He also spoke about how this could shift the dynamic at Mercedes. “If things continue like this over the next few weeks, things will also get exciting in the team. There may be changes in the ranking,” as he speculated if a power shift is incoming at Mercedes.
Amid all this, Ralf Schumacher went on to admit the veteran still has a lot of fight left in him and said, “But I am far from saying that Hamilton missed the point of retiring. Lewis continues to be one of the best drivers in the field. That is clear.”
Schumacher would go on to add, “However, the new concepts require the drivers to adapt a little. Hamilton is not used to that. Russell, on the other hand, is a young pilot. They obviously get along better with it.”
