F1 news: Lewis Hamilton request causes confusion, Horner speaks out on key Red Bull exit | F1 | Sport

Lewis Hamilton did not make a request to Mercedes to have his seat moved, leaving Ted Kravitz confused after the Briton’s complaints earlier in the season.

The 38-year-old mentioned that the seat was too far forward causing him difficulties in the W14 car: “When you’re driving, you feel like you’re sitting on the front wheels which is one of the worst feelings to feel when you’re driving a car,” he said.

But on BBC‘s Chequered Flag podcast, Kravitz suggested that in his discussion with Mercedes chief Mike Elliott that Hamilton had not made such a request for his seat to be amended.

Kravitz said: “I’m not sure because at the beginning of testing we had a special guest, Mike Elliott. I had all these ideas about the Mercedes and I put them to Mike, and he said ‘no’.

“One of them was, I said have you moved the cockpit forward because there’s something online, I can’t remember what it was, so I said have you moved the cockpit forward. He said, ‘no’. So I’m all a bit confused.”
