Lewis Hamilton's former mentor explains why he's 'backing' Max Verstappen to win F1 title

Hamilton hopes his experience can edge him ahead in the title battle this season.

“Time will tell, I will hope so,” added the 36-year-old. “And of course it’s been an incredibly difficult year, It’s not been smooth sailing in terms of performance, as a team with the car and everything.

“I mean I hope so, and there’s been a lot of learnings in the course of these first 12 or 13 races we’ve had. 

“So, yeah, I hope we see that moving forward.”

The tense championship battle continues on Sunday at the Russian Grand Prix, with Mercedes leading the way in the constructors by 18 points.
