Lewis: P2 ‘A Great Effort by Whole Team’

Abu Dhabi may not have been the ending to the season that Lewis had hoped, but the seven-time champion praised everyone in the team for helping secure P2 in the Constructors' standings.

After losing out to Ferrari at the previous two races in Brazil and Las Vegas, 17 points from the season finale were enough to clinch the runners-up spot by three points from the Scuderia.

The result was also an improvement on 2022, when the team finished P3 in the standings behind Red Bull and Ferrari.

"I'm happy we've managed to secure P2, it was a great effort by the team at track and both in Brackley and Brixworth," said Lewis post-race.

"Given that we've not had a competitive car for much of the season, the result shows we are a strong team.

"George did a great job, it was close with Ferrari but we held on. I hope everyone back at the factory is happy. I'm grateful for all the hard work they have put in this season."

Despite a tough season at times for the team, Lewis was able to claim six podiums (three seconds and three thirds) including a 104th career pole position in Hungary, helping him to a third-place finish in the Driver's Championship.

For now though, next year and racing can wait with both Lewis and George getting some much-deserved time off.

We're not where we want to be yet, we want to be fighting for championships. We need to dig deep over winter and come back stronger next year.
