The former world champion has been outpaced by his team-mate Nico Rosberg at times this season
Wednesday 12 June 2013
Mercedes have assured Lewis Hamilton they have every confidence in him despite his remarks to the contrary. Before last weekend's Canadian Grand Prix, in which he finished third after starting from second, he said he approached the race "massively determined to regain everyone's confidence in me".
Hamilton admitted to lacking certainty and comfort in his car and had been overshadowed by his team-mate Nico Rosberg's three successive pole positions.But Mercedes' director Toto Wolff said: "I don't have that feeling we lack confidence in him. I think we are going to see great races from Lewis. I've no doubt."
