Lewis Hamilton is certain to bounce back sooner rather than later from the latest slump that saw him fail to win any of the first three races of the 2018 Formula 1 season, according to former teammate Nico Rosberg.
It’s the first time since the introduction of the V6 Turbo era in 2014 that Mercedes have failed to win after the first three races with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel taking wins in the first two rounds in Australia and Bahrain and Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo winning in China on Sunday.
"When it doesn't go perfectly, he starts to lose that edge a little bit and a touch of motivation and then just struggles for a while," Rosberg said, as quoted by BBC Sport. "You have to maximize those races because Lewis always comes back."
Hamilton started the season as the favorite to win his fifth drivers’ championship title, but is now joint favorite with Ferrari’s Vettel. However, Red Bull Racing showed in the previous race that they have a car capable of challenging for wins on a regular basis which also makes them a contender in a season which has a record equalling 21-races.
