Lewis Hamilton snaps at journalist over Ferrari question following another drab performance

Lewis Hamilton snaps at journalist over Ferrari question following another drab performance

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton snapped at a reporter regarding a question about Ferrari

Lewis Hamilton has snapped at a journalist regarding a question they asked about Ferrari.

Hamilton, 39, is set to leave AMG Mercedes after 11 years with the team, which has seen him win six of his seven World Championships with the team.

Despite his previous successes, the last two seasons with the team have been far from successful for the legendary driver - with Hamilton now set to join Ferrari in the 2025 season after triggering an exit clause in his contract.

Hamilton will eventually replace current Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz J next season, although the Spaniard has enjoyed a successful start to the 2024 campaign with a win at the Melbourne GP - as well as third place in Bahrain and most recently Japan.

While Sainz sealed a place on the podium, it was a very different story for Hamilton at Suzuka. The Brit finished in ninth place across the race, which was some distance away from the two Ferrari drivers in fourth and third - as well as his Mercedes teammate George Russell in seventh.

Speaking after the race Hamilton was asked whether or not he was looking forward to joining Ferrari next season in his post-race interviews, due to them being 'faster' than Mercedes currently.

To which the seven-time World Champion responded: "Do you have any better questions?"

Hamilton was then asked if there were any improvements the team could've made to change the outcome of the race, where he spoke about contact he received with Charles Leclerc's Ferrari car in the opening stages of the contest. “Nothing I don’t think, I don’t know what the different strategy would’ve been,” Hamilton told Sky Sports. “We still had two really terrible hard tyres to run through so yeah real damage today. I think I picked up some damage from Charles at the start, I had huge understeer for the first stint.”
