Our company is scheduled to release the new product soon. But the release of the new product has been delayed because of some technical issues. In this situation, can I say like this?

I hope we don't make the same mistake as we've already made.

as we've already made is kind of redundant, but I'd like to know it is grammatically right.

Yes you can! "Same + noun + as" as a comparative is very normal. Note that you don't actually need to include "as" in this case. You can contract to just say

The same mistake we've already made.

If I could just propose a simplified version that you may prefer:

I hope we don't make the same mistake again.
