However, in the last few races Lewis managed to produce a string of amazing performances, while George seemed to be the one encountering more issues.

“I knew the challenge I faced ahead of the season, going up against Lewis and I’ve seen first-hand just how great he is.
“In any sport, you often get into a bit of a groove, a bit of a rhythm and things seemingly go for you or against you and I obviously had quite a good run.
“Those first nine races – maybe eight races – I’d say were pretty good. The last two races [ahead of Austria] were a bit trickier for me.
“But we’ve seen in those last couple of races just how fast Lewis is,” the Briton concluded.
