Hamilton's back pain is causing Mercedes to worry about racing in Canada

The Briton finished fourth in Baku, after starting seventh in a race in which both Ferrari drivers gave up, but had a cost.

“It was the hardest race, the hardest race I’ve ever had,” Hamilton told Reuters.

Team leader Toto Wolff acknowledged that the situation had raised concerns.

“It’s very bad,” the Austrian told reporters. “We need to find a solution…

Asked if there was a risk that Hamilton would miss Montreal, Wolff said, “Yes, for sure. I didn’t see him and I didn’t talk to him after that, but it doesn’t seem to be a muscle problem.

I mean, this can be felt in the spine, and it can have some consequences. ”

Hamilton, who was standing in the back as he got out of the car, compared the experience to a four-minute cry therapy session and said he focused only on all the people who relied on him to collect points.

Teammate George Russell, who finished in third place, warned on Saturday that it was only a matter of time before the “porpoising” problem would cause a major accident.

“I don’t really know what the future holds, but I don’t think we can sustain that for three years or for as long as these regulations are in place,” he said.

Red Bull chief Christian Horner, whose drivers finished in the top two, with world champion Max Verstappen ahead of Sergio Perez, suggested that rivals could exaggerate the problems to get a favorable safety change for safety reasons.

“I would tell them to complain as much as they can and make it as big a problem as possible,” he said when asked what he would tell his pilots if they suffered similar tremors.

“It simply came to our notice then. It’s like someone goes into a punishment box.

You may see that it is uncomfortable, but there are remedies for it. But it is detrimental to the performance of the car. So the easiest thing to do is to complain about safety, “he said.

Raising the running height of the car would eliminate much of the hassle, but it would also have a negative impact on performance.

The Mercedes champion struggled more than most with these trepidations as the teams adjusted to the radical new regulations.
