After winning the Belgian Grand Prix, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton admitted that improvements need to be made, especially with eight races remaining.
Hamilton cut Sebastian Vettel’s Drivers’ Championship points to a mere seven after claiming victory in what was a long battle.
The 32-year-old Hamilton said: I think Ferrari were ultimately quicker. I was just able to keep them at bay," said Hamilton. “But if our cars were reversed, I don’t think I would have been able to hold as close as he did.
"If anyone's out there thinking we have the best car this year then they need to think again because it's not the case… We might have the upper hand in power, but that’s not enough – we have to keep improving.”
According to AFP, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff shared Hamilton’s views on Ferrari’s performance saying, "They have done a good job in bringing an upgrade package that works – this is a track that shouldn’t suit them, like Silverstone, but they were much closer than expected.
“We just have to keep our development scope steep and continue to bring bits on the car and deliver faultlessly.”
