Lewis Hamilton: It’s not been a great year in terms of our engine development

Lewis Hamilton believes that Mercedes have had a poor season in terms of their engine development. Ferrari have looked like they have the strongest power unit but Mercedes have won the constructor's championship. However, Hamilton still wants his engine to improve for next season. 

"I think it’s not been a great year for us in terms of the great issue, in terms of our engine development," Hamilton said at a post-race press conference. 

"I think it’s been a really hard time for the guys, they’ve been working as hard as ever but it’s just not been as successful in that department, as I say, plus it’s quite draggy but we’ve had great reliability and hopefully that remains the same and that’s still something to be really proud of of course.

"We have, obviously, still won the Constructors championship but we’ll push to try and maybe reduce the drag a little bit but also increasing power for next so they’re fully onto it and I have all the confidence in the world that we’ll be able to make some sort of step into the next season." 

Mercedes have often performed the best despite not having the fastest engine. They will hope to be even more dominant next season with a stronger engine.
