Lewis Hamilton says P2 in the Drivers’ Championship is “largely dependent on Checo’s performance moving forward as he should easily have second”.
Although Red Bull is almost unbeatable in the 2023 F1 season, Lewis Hamilton now sits only 30 points behind Sergio Perez in the Drivers’ Championship.
Taking into account how Perez’s form has not been that great this year, it is definitely possible for Lewis to finish second in the championship.
Asked if he believes this can be achieved, Lewis decided to turn up the heat on Perez.
“I mean, it’s ultimately largely dependent on Checo’s performance moving forward as he should easily have second,” the Briton said.

“I’m really proud of where we are, where I’ve managed to get to, I’ve been really proud of the race performances so far.”
However, Lewis ultimately said the biggest goal is for Mercedes to finish second in the Constructors’ Championship.
“Of course I want to try and do better and do more. If we were able to get second [in the Drivers’ Championship] that would be amazing.
“But the main focus is really trying to get second for the team,” Hamilton concluded.
