Shop BURAGO 1:43 F1 MERCEDES-AMG W13 2022 #44 HAMILTON
Hamilton was partnered by George Russell for 2022, in place of the departing Bottas. The season saw significant changes in technical regulations which sought to utilize ground effect to generate downforce. During pre-season testing in Bahrain, Mercedes introduced its “zero sidepod” car design, which was radically different to that of its competitors. The Mercedes W13 suffered with extreme porpoising early in the season which limited the car’s potential; at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, Hamilton deemed the car “undrivable”. By the end of the season, Hamilton achieved nine podiums but failed to achieve a race win or pole position in a season for the first time in his Formula One career. He finished in sixth place in the drivers’ championship, 35 points behind Russell, who finished fourth.
