Mercedes GP team Principal Ross Brawn says Lewis Hamilton come-back better form and he learned from his time alongside Jenson Button and set improved this season. Brawn was worked with Button in his championship-winning year in 2009 season.
“Lewis has raw speed,” he told Autosport in Melbourne on Thursday.
“On his own admission he didn’t have the best year last year, but I think he’s intelligent enough to realise that didn’t work out and to work to improve his own performance, because he has huge speed and huge talent.”
“I think with Jenson he has seen someone who is maybe not as ultimately quick as Lewis, but is able to apply himself more effectively and so that is a combination you have, and Jenson is a very intelligent guy. Don’t get me wrong, very, very quick, but really focused on his racing.”
He added: “He sets his car up well, is totally focused during practice and has the right priorities and that’s a big help, I think Lewis can lean a lot from how Jenson works.”
“Lewis has to do his own thing and it’ll be fascinating to see how he does this year, I think he’ll do a great job.”
