Mercedes had the dominant car in recent seasons, but in 2022 the team will have a much harder time. Due to the new regulations, the German racing stable is working hard behind the scenes to keep sight of the competition, but for now Lewis Hamilton has no certainty.

For years, the seven-time world champion was the slain world champion. Last season he suddenly faced competition from Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen, while in the new year Ferrari also seems to be among the title favorites. Hamilton therefore realizes that it is not going to be easy.

With one week left before the first Grand Prix in Bahrain, Mercedes therefore has a lot of work to do. The Germans will use the test days to gather as much data as possible, while Hamilton and George Russell will prepare for the pressure they will face directly during the first race weekend.

Hamilton, meanwhile, still finds it difficult to say which team is the favorite to finish the race in Bahrain victorious. "I really don't know. I think Ferrari, from what I can see, today Ferrari would probably be getting a 1-2 or maybe Red Bull," he revealed to Crash.net.
