“Lewis Hamilton’s car has been doing well for the last two Grands Prix, and I think he’ll continue to be stronger and come back strong in Baku. It will be great to see George Russell challenge Lewis Hamilton throughout the whole year. All the racing fans are watching that closely. Lewis is going to come strong now. It will be great to see,” Fittipaldi concluded.

Meanwhile, the most worrying sign for Hamilton this time around has been his record against his new teammate George Russell. With Valtteri Bottas, Hamilton was rarely beaten over the course of their time together at Mercedes.

Moreover, Hamilton has beaten Russell just once this season and that came in the initial Grand Prix of the year in Bahrain. The seven-time title holder has had his reasonable part of misfortune because of safety car periods and varying strategies.

However, there were few improvements since the Spanish Grand Prix with both Mercedes vehicles beginning to show great speed against Ferrari and Red Bull. The tight roads around Monaco demonstrated trouble with neither Russell nor Hamilton ready to acquire a lot of ground.

Hamilton will expect to keep away from a rehash of last season’s race in Azerbaijan when he missed out on winning the race. The British driver started on the restart in second place with only one last lap remaining after Max Verstappen’s tyre puncture drew out a red flag.

Hamilton endeavored to take action inside Sergio Perez into the first corner. However, he picked some unacceptable brake mode and crashed off into the escape street prior to completing the race in the fifteenth position.
