Former F1 driver Martin Brundle says Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes have “raised their game at a pivotal point of the championship”.

In his Sky Sports column Martin Brundle gave his opinion on Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton’s amazing form in the last two races.

“There can be no doubt that Hamilton and Mercedes have raised their game at a pivotal point of the championship,” Brundle wrote.

“Lewis has found renewed trust in the factory simulator and works late into the night at the track as he impressively finds new motivation for an eighth title despite his relative age, trophy warehouse, and significant bank balance.

“Mercedes have some powerful car set up tools and a fresh engine too for the remainder of the season which will ensure they are very fast, and no doubt they will be watching each other like hawks regarding interpretation of particularly the aero regulations.”

At the next race in Saudi Arabia Max Verstappen could mathematically win the championship, however Brundle doesn’t think it’s very likely.

“Only Max can mathematically win the championship at the penultimate round in Saudi Arabia but, given the high-speed track layout there and such prodigious recent performance of the Mercedes, that will only happen if Lewis has a problem,” concluded the Briton.
