The premise of Hot Ones is simple yet devilishly entertaining. Guests are served chicken wings coated in increasingly fiery hot sauces. As they answer questions, the heat level ramps up, testing their taste buds, composure, and wit. Lewis Hamilton, a man accustomed to high-speed adrenaline rushes, found himself navigating uncharted territory as he tackled the “Wings of Death.”

During the interview, Hamilton shared intriguing insights into his mindset. He drew parallels between racing and life, emphasizing the difference between being the hunter and the haunted. In the high-stakes world of Formula 1, he’s the predator—focused, relentless, and hungry for victory. He said, “I think it’s easier to hunt.”

The season finale at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix encapsulated Hamilton’s struggles. Squeezed by Carlos Sainz early in the race, Hamilton found himself bouncing over kerbs and across run-off areas. Throughout the eventful afternoon, he reported issues over the team radio—complaints of “losing power,” suspicions about the car, and a broken floor. Ultimately, a terminal issue forced him into a mechanical retirement, leaving him sixth in the World Championship standings.

Mercedes’ W13 car posed challenges from the outset. Despite steady progress throughout the season, it couldn’t consistently match Red Bull’s dominant RB18. Hamilton candidly admitted that they started with a car they didn’t want and finished with the same. The fundamentals remained unchanged, leading to a frustrating year for the team. However, Hamilton sees it as a team-building exercise—one that will strengthen their resolve for future championships
