I agree that there might be a chance of Lulu or Rosberg taking a win this year but at least up to now that seems to depend solely on the performance of the three teams which are clearly in front of the Mercedes.
But being in with a chance for the championship? It certainly doesn't looks like they (Lulu/Rosberg/Mercedes) have a chance.

@ sunny,
nope, just read this 3 times and I can't see anywhere that says he thinks he has a chance at the championship only that LH hopes to get a win !!!! the only reference to the title race is because if he and/or Nico can win it takes points from the challengers

Seems like their car is out of balance worked good for Rosberg at the beginning of the race (full fuel) and for Lewis at the end of his race. Think they need to look at their KERS batteries and fuel tank. Anyways, Lewis should be good for some more podiums, just have to keep it cool, calm and collected, and keep maximizing the potential of those tires.

So far Mercdes have given him a fast car, but he stil can't deliver. He might luck in and win one race but I wouldn't put my money on it.

He just isn't in the same league as Alonso and Vettel. They can win in a car that isn't the best, Hamilton can't.

If they can lock out the front row with their cars that seem to work well in qualifying trim, Monaco has to be Mercedes best chance. Whoever is 2nd into St Devote holds up the field and lets his team mate build a big lead without knackering the tyres and the victory should be in the bag.

Lewis is also mighty in Canada so that could be another chance.

I hope Lewis gets a win this year. He deserves it. He is doing a magnificent job for Mercedes.

I think Lewis can win a race this year. He seems much happier and more at ease than he was in the last two seasons with McLaren.

I think that aiming for top four in the drivers and constructors championship is realistic as long as they can keep improving during the season. As with the other teams, they perform well when they find the sweet spot with the tyres. The cooler European races should help them a lot in that regard.
