Lewis Hamilton expects the upcoming 2020 campaign will be “the most difficult season”. Formula 1 prepares to resume amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The delayed 2020 season will finally get underway with the Austrian Grand Prix next weekend on July 5.
Back-to-back races at the Red Bull Ring in Austria will kick off run of eight Grand Prix in just 10 weeks.
“We are preparing in the best way we can for what is going to be the most difficult season that F1 has experienced with the difficult times that we are facing and the changes we have to make to operate,” Hamilton said in a video released by Mercedes.
“I wanted to thank you all for all the positive messages, they’ve really helped over the last couple of months for the team and I.”
Hamilton recently got his first taste of the new hygiene measures and drove F1 machinery for the first time since Barcelona pre-season testing in February.
