We’re also saying bye-bye to Mercedes’ not-so-great car from 2023, and they’re planning a fresh start. Will Hamilton win again? Let’s dive into the world of fast cars, thrilling races, and the battle for victory!

Jenson Button’s Thoughts

In a recent talk with Sky Sports, Jenson Button shared his opinion about the upcoming season. He pointed out that for the past 10 years, it’s mostly been a competition between Mercedes and Red Bull. Button thinks that this time, it could be Mercedes making a strong comeback. Even though Ferrari won one race in 2023, Button sees Mercedes as the main team to challenge Red Bull.

He thinks Mercedes will improve a lot in 2024, and with Lewis Hamilton driving for them, they have a good chance. Button also praised Hamilton, saying he is still very fast, even though he hasn’t won a race in a while. According to Button, Hamilton is more comfortable and confident now, making fewer mistakes. This, he believes, makes Hamilton even better than he was a few years ago.

Mercedes Says Goodbye to W14

In a funny and symbolic move, Mercedes posted a picture to say goodbye to their not-so-great car, the W14. Even though Mercedes finished second in the championship, they didn’t win any races in 2023. The caption with the picture said the “W14 car had left the chat,” and fans seemed happy to see it go. Mercedes is not just saying goodbye to a car; they are also making big changes for 2024. Toto Wolff, the boss of the team, announced that they are changing almost everything about their new car. They want a fresh start to have a better chance at winning.

Wolff knows it’s a big risk, and the changes might not work. But he’s ready for anything—it could be a big success or it might not go as planned. Even though Mercedes scored 409 points and finished second in the championship, Red Bull scored way more points, a whopping 860, to become the champions.

As we look forward to the 2024 Formula 1 season, it seems like there’s going to be a real battle between Red Bull and Mercedes. Jenson Button’s words have added excitement to the mix, suggesting that Mercedes is ready for the challenge. With Lewis Hamilton aiming for his eighth championship, and Mercedes making big changes, fans can’t wait for the new season to start. The competition is heating up, and the countdown has begun for what promises to be an exciting year in Formula 1.
