Hamilton is on the longest winless run of his F1 career – a streak that stretches back to the Saudi race in December.
But the 37-year-old, who has won at least one race every year he has been in F1, is confident of breaking his 2022 duck.
Brit Hamilton, who was second in Hungary last time out, said: “We’ve been improving, some great progress, everyone pulling together.
“The car is becoming more of a racing car, which is not particularly what it was at the start!
“The last race was the best showing we’ve had so far. It was a huge boost, that we can close the gap.
“It’s naturally going to be tough, we’ll keep our heads down now.”
