Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are back on the collision course – this time away from the track – as the pair share their differing views on Mercedes‘ chances of closing the gap on Red Bull. The former team-mates became accustomed to clashing with each other as they fought for the title, but with Hamilton still racing and Rosberg now working as a pundit, they are still likely to disagree on the German manufacturer’s chances of success in the near future.

Mercedes, meanwhile, have mustered three second-place finishes with Hamilton, while George Russell has registered only one podium finish all season. But Rosberg, who won the world championship in 2016, believes there are signs that the team are making vast improvements.

When assessing Mercedes’ hopes of knocking Red Bull off their perch after back-to-back Drivers’ and Constructors’ titles, the former F1 champion is confident the Silver Arrows could have their say in the title battle.

“I believe in Mercedes’ ability because I was there. I know how strong they are. It’s always still the same people,” said Rosberg. “So certainly there is a chance that Hamilton could once again fight for the championship next year.”
