Miami Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton calls Mercedes practice pace ‘a kick in the guts’

Lewis Hamilton said his Mercedes team “desperately” need car upgrades after a difficult Friday practice at the Miami Grand Prix.

The seven-time champion was 0.928 seconds slower than Max Verstappen’s Red Bull, which set an imposing pace.

Hamilton said: “It’s a kick in the guts and it’s a little bit difficult to take sometimes.”

Mercedes are due to introduce a major car development at the next race, the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix on 19-21 May.

“We desperately need those upgrades,” Hamilton said. “We have to keep our head down for one more race and hopefully we will start a new path next race.”
