The 37-year-old will almost certainly want to avoid a repeat of that scenario next year. But most important for Hamilton will be his hope that Mercedes will be able to compete from the start of next season.
He is still chasing the eighth world title and is ready to commit a few more years to Mercedes to make that happen. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday will be a chance for Hamilton to set a milestone heading into 2023.
But when the lights turn green in March for the Bahrain Grand Prix, Hamilton will be hoping to have a car underneath capable of challenging for a world title. And he will probably do everything possible to show that he is still the number 1 driver at Mercedes.
