2016 Formula 1 champion Nico Rosberg says Lewis Hamilton’s competitors have to take maximum advantage of his “weak phases”, because when he comes back “it’s full attack“.
Ahead of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, Nico Rosberg was asked to give his thoughts on who will win the 2021 title.
“It’s a sensationally close fight,” the German told SportBuzzer.
“Emotionally, I say Lewis. His experience speaks for him. But the championship is totally open.
“Max is really super-strong. Mental strength is essential in a duel like this. It’s certainly not easy for Max because it’s the first time he’s been in such a situation.
“And then against the most successful Formula 1 driver of all time. In that respect, he already deserves the greatest recognition.”

However, the German says the only way to beat Hamilton is to take maximum advantage of his dips in form, because “he always comes back”.
“You have to take advantage when Lewis has his weak phases, when he loses his motivation, his head. Then it’s full attack!
“In other words, you have to score the maximum number of points possible because you should never write Lewis off. He always comes back.
“Every time I see Lewis win, it becomes clearer why it wasn’t quite so easy for me to beat him,” Nico concluded.
