Not a big Hamilton fan but he is seriously back in the hunt again.

Another win for him and Ferrari would be on the back foot. Think Red Bull are struggling a little at the moment.

One win does not a championship make. The lack of consistency in Hamilton and the team are not going to magically evaporate, nor are competitors likely to lay down. Hamilton is sitting in his usual 4th to 5th slot - where he will finish the season, again. The real intrigue is: Will Alonso continue to perform over the next 10 outings? Will Red Bull dig out of the hole they are in? Will Kimi find it in him to step up to make a charge to the top? Whether Lewis can transcend himself is just a re-run of the last 3 seasons.

I agree with him on the Lotus point, Spa is where Kimi is king and that new DRS system should work brilliantly there.

Cue the Jaws music Kimi & Romaine are coming!

Just imagine what this Brundle man would say if Lulu was 40 points clear of his nearest rival at the halfway point of the season, most probably he would be predicting that Lulu would win the next 10 championships on the trot.

@ Kevin, I agree and see where you are coming from with the usual third or fourth positions and title tilt tripe that gets spouted every year, but I would take issue with your first comment and suggest you ask Keke Rosbrg if 1 race win a championship does not make!!
Strangely enough that was also the last time there was nearly as many winners in a season so.................

Also just to note, this was Lewis's 2nd win this year
an I'd get bored before I could remember how many wdc's have been crowned with just 2 wins.
Fact of the matter is this season has been so unpredictable its very hard to gauge, having said that, there does seem to be a certain air of stabilization between the top teams and I expect lewis will be in the thick of it, remember 47 points is misleading, we're only talking roughly 23-25 points in old money an that has been overturned in 10 races countless times.
Peace be well!
