The promise you made
Before the French Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton declared that despite the ten-position grid penalty he will face after ramming Kimi Raikkonen in Canada, he "can still win in France".
Lewis will face a hard time keeping up with his expectations. In the history of Formula One, only 24 races out 792 (three percent) were won from the 11th spot on the grid or lower.

Looking at the most recent races, these wins were influenced by several factors like rain, safety car interventions or race leaders dropping out of contention.
