Last season, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton was directly involved in the title race with Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen. In the end the Dutchman got the better of him after the controversial Abu Dhabi GP, but in 2022 the Briton can’t give Verstappen any trouble, due to the inferior performance of Mercedes. With that, the Dutchman is on his way to his second title in Formula 1, as the closest in contention this year, Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, appears to be out of the fray.

In addition to the qualities of Verstappen himself, the seven-time champion sees that Red Bull is having an excellent season, with a stable performance. The team also looks set to win the constructors’ championship at the end of the current season.

“There are parts of our car that are good and there is performance there,” Hamilton told Sky Sports. “It’s just whether or not we can utilize it. You want a car that works on every track, and the Red Bull car works on most places.”

“Red Bull has aerodynamic balance and good riding quality,” Hamilton continued. “They are a great team and they did an amazing job. Red Bull also had a great car last year,” he added.

Hamilton has managed to get on the podium no less than five times between Canada and Hungary this year. However, things went wrong at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit when the seven-time champion collided with Fernando Alonso on the first lap and had to retire.

In any case, the superiority of Red Bull and Verstappen in F1 this year seems to be really difficult to overcome, both by Ferrari, and especially by Mercedes.
