Hamilton: Not winning a race this season is 'not the end of the world'

Briton Lewis Hamilton, seven-times world champion in Formula One, considered that "not winning any race this season "is not the end of the world." The Mercedes driver has suffered this season in light of the overwhelming dominance of Red Bull and Dutch world champion Max Verstappen, who is close to his second crown And unlike last season, when he was close to snatching the title until the last lap in Abu Dhabi, Hamilton is faltering in sixth place in the drivers' standings this season.

"I don't think it's a dry period, I think this year has been for growth. It has been a good experience for all of us," he said from Kuala Lumpur on the sidelines of the Singapore Grand Prix scheduled for Sunday.

"There are six races left, and we'll try to win those chances, I don't think it's the end of the world."

"We will return to the top," added the 37-year-old.

He described this season as the "most difficult" in his career, after his car suffered from rebounds at high speed, especially with the brilliance of Red Bull's car. "We need to understand the car."

Mercedes, which also includes another British driver, George Russell, is competing with Ferrari for second place in the constructors' standings. "We are aiming for second place, and I hope we can do well in the next six races."

Mercedes had signed an understanding to extend its partnership with the Malaysian sponsor, oil giant Petronas, until at least 2029.
