The 37-year-old driver has yet to win a single victory in 2022, unlike all other seasons of his Formula 1 career. Brown believes that today Mercedes is going through a period of transformation – like in the early 2010s with Michael Schumacher.

“Lewis is in the twilight of his career, but that doesn’t mean it’s over. This season the car for the first time in a long time does not allow to win, so he makes great efforts to change the situation. For him, this is in a sense a test of character. Perhaps that is why teammate George Russell is more hungry for success in racing.

You can compare the situation of Lewis with the return of Michael [в «Формулу-1»] in the Mercedes. The rider always chooses whether he wants to be part of the solution or part of the problem. Michael changed his role, helped build a team that went on to win eight Constructors’ Championships in a row. It can be said that he sacrificed himself for the future of the team and played a key role in laying the foundation.

The then Michael is underestimated. He was still blazing fast, as evidenced by his 2012 Monaco pole position. Like Lewis now, Michael worked with a young partner – Nico Rosberg, who was also insanely good. Niko was underestimated back then. Everyone considered him the second number, but he turned out to be a fighter and a very ambitious pilot, and then became a champion in the fight against Lewis.

Lewis will return, I have no doubt about it. As is his team. I believe that overcoming difficulties only makes you stronger, ”said Brown.
