Lewis Hamilton backed to win F1 race for Mercedes this season on one condition

Lewis Hamilton can win races this season if one
thing happens to their rivals, according to F1
pundit Sebastiaan Bleekmolen. The Mercedes
star could pick up victories if “other teams have
a bad day” says Bleekmolen as reliability still
plays a major role in the championship.Almost all of the Silver Arrows’ podiums this
season have been down to taking advantage of
mechanical woes or penalties for Red Bull and
Ferrari drivers. Bleekemolen stresses Hamilton is
back to his best which is one of the key
ingredients for the team’s chances of picking up
wins this season.

Speaking to Motorsport.com, he said: “A victory
is just coming if they can continue this trend,
then they are definitely going to compete. Sergio
Perez and Carlos Sainz drop out, that can happen
to anyone. If the other teams have a bad day,
there is an opportunity for them.
“I also think what Toto Wolff says is a realistic
goal. It would be nice, but I would like to add
that Hamilton is really showing he is a real
World Champion. He still rakes in the podiums
again with a difficult car and that is purely due to
his qualities. It’s a combination of the car and
Hamilton – if it runs, I expect another victory.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff claimed Hamilton
could have won the British Grand Prix if it wasn’t
for a late-race safety car period. At the time,
Hamilton was chasing down Carlos Sainz and
Charles Leclerc on fresher tyres before a late
stoppage neutralised the field.
Bleekemoleen also praised the team’s efforts at
the British Grand Prix, adding the team were
strong over the weekend in their bid to close on
Red Bull and Ferrari. He commented: “If you
look at the previous race at Silverstone, they
were also very strong at the beginning. I can see
that happening if they can just keep the trend
going.“Russell you shouldn’t discount, he’s fast.

Hamilton is fast and he races well. I wouldn’t be
surprised if they get at least another second
place and maybe a win.”He said: “You do sense Mercedes are back in
business, which is good news for us in terms of
the rest of the season and a three-way fight.
Lewis has never had a season in Formula 1
where he didn’t take a victory and all of a
sudden it looks far more possible than it did
three or four races ago.”
