Hamilton opens up on plans to remain in F1 ahead of 2023 season
Lewis Hamilton has been told he will continue to struggle if he switches teams and joins Ferrari in a major blow. F1 pundit Peter Windsor feels the seven-time champion will suffer similar issues faced by Charles Leclerc over the past year and will still have no answer to Max Verstappen.
Hamilton has been linked to the Prancing Horse after failing to sign a new deal at Mercedes. His current contract at the Silver Arrows expires at the end of the season with no details on his immediate future yet revealed.
Meanwhile, Christian Horner has been told he is “unable to control” Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez at Red Bull. It comes as tensions appear to rise at Red Bull after a series of confrontations between the two stars in recent months.
Lewis Hamilton learns Ferrari’s fate
F1 expert Peter Windsor has revealed Lewis Hamilton is likely to struggle at Ferrari if he moves to the Italian marque.
He has predicted the Brit could face similar struggles to Charles Leclerc who has been unable to get close to Max Verstappen’s dominance.
Windsor told his YouTube channel: “I think he will find it as difficult as Charles finds it. Of course, if Lewis went to Ferrari, there will be a lot of ‘Here comes the great Lewis’ or ‘Lewis coming to Maranello’ and Lewis, who keeps his racing and life pretty simple would say, ‘You know, give me the race car and let [me] do some driving’.
“But I think he would have the same problems. I don’t think he will have any solution to Charles’s problem nor Max for that matter.”
Christian Horner can’t control Verstappen and Perez
Former Sky Sports F1 pundit Johnny Herbert has claimed Christian Horner will be “unable to control” Max Verstappen when they are behind the wheel.
He stressed Red Bull struggled to avoid confrontation with Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber almost a decade ago.
He explained: “Going back to Sebastian and Mark. There was a bit of that for sure about the championship.
“Did they control it? You can probably see what Sebastian did in Malaysia. They weren’t able to control that. Can you control the driver when he’s in the cockpit?”
