Hamilton makes F1 testing admission: I have done for all those lost test days

The Mercedes driver said he didn’t want to take part in the test days before and said he made a mistake to avoid it. Lewis Hamilton made headlines when he faked an illness to avoid a driver’s test while competing in Formula 1.

   Many drivers have spoken of their dislike of taking part in the test, due to the amount of car washing they can do. circle In-season testing is now restricted to F1 to cut costs, and tire manufacturer Pirelli in particular. The teams will also participate in film days of up to 200 kilometers with the purpose of running on the track to create commercial and marketing content.

   Hamilton: And I knew for sure! At a post-season press conference at the Mercedes factory, Hamilton was joined by team principal Toto Wolff and reserve driver Mick Schumacher to address the team. When told that George Russell had missed school due to illness, Hamilton said, “So when I heard yesterday that he was sick, I thought, ‘Oh, one step ahead of me!’ It’s reached another level!” Hamilton missed the previous test due to illness of the team.

   There was also a time in 2015 when Pascal Wehrlein replaced the seven-time world champion in pre-season testing at the Circuit de Catalunya.
