Hamilton: Mercedes’ new upgrades are a step in the right direction

Mercedes benefited from a strategic decision by Ferrari to bring Carlos Sainz in for a tire change on Lap 33, giving Hamilton the opportunity to regain track position ahead of George Russell, who made a mistake at Mirabeau.

With Mercedes finishing in fourth and fifth positions, Hamilton spoke positively to the media after the race, indicating that the introduction of the W14 upgrades, including a new sidepod design, proved to be successful despite the unique challenges of the Monaco circuit.
