Further talking about the Spanish Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton praised Mercedes reserve driver Mick Schumacher for his insights on the track before the Spanish GP. He said, "We’ve got a great team with Mick back in the simulator on Friday night and he did some great work, which helped us get on the right track on Saturday.
"I think we did pretty decent work in trying to understand the different downforce levels and in the race, the car felt great. But honestly, I just couldn't match the times that Max was doing. For George to come from 12th to third is just remarkable. So, really awesome result for us as a team," Hamilton further added.
