Lewis Hamilton has "full faith" that Mercedes can produce a competitive car for 2024, after seeing it in the wind tunnel in a recent factory visit.

The seven-time World Champion visited the factory in the days prior to accepting the trophy for third place in the Drivers' Championship at the FIA Prize Giving Gala in Baku, Azerbaijan.

He used his visit to check on the progress of the W15, although he admitted that it would be tough to make any early judgements on where the team is at with the new car.

"I'm not an engineer or a designer. So it's not easy. It's always an exciting time of the year because I have seen the current car in the wind tunnel," Hamilton told media, including RacingNews365.

"I always go by the wind tunnel when I go to the factory to see it evolving in whichever direction it ends up going."

Hamilton: It will be a different animal

Team Principal Toto Wolff claimed that Mercedes will "leave no stone unturned" with their 2024 challenger, as they look to improve their fortunes following a winless year.

Hamilton claimed that it will be a "different animal" next time he sees it following the winter break.

"I popped in just to see where we were and when I come back it will be again a different animal.

"But I have full faith in everyone that's working on it and I'm hopeful that we will be in a much more competitive position next year."
