Former Formula 1 driver Derek Warwick believes that his fellow citizen, Lewis Hamilton may be disappointed his move to Mercedes for 2013 F1.
Warwick added that he made a move out of top three, he expecting Red Bull and McLaren will fight again in upcoming season. One of the main things McLaren the only team beat Red Bull in many occasions for this season.
Obviously Mercedes struggled in entire this season they just took single top podium finish at Chinese GP. Mercedes need right development and fix some major issues, last few races they mostly struggled with exhaust layout.
Warwick thinks that the Lewis Hamilton is going to face problems in the 2013 F1 season as his new team has not been able to develop a skilled car so far.
“You are never going to see McLaren, Red Bull and Ferrari out of the top three and I’d say McLaren and Red Bull are favourites to fight it out again. It just depends on which way round they finish at the top,” Warwick told the Daily Star.
“And the great thing Red Bull have is a certain gentleman called Adrian Newey, who is without doubt the best designer and race car engineer there is in Formula One.
“Every team he has gone to, from Williams to McLaren and now to Red Bull, has won World Championships.
“We have a stability in the rules for next year so you would suspect we will pick up at the start of 2013 where we left off this year.
“I am sure Lewis Hamilton will hope that is not the case.
“Mercedes are working on a new car but their performance this year was not just disappointing, it was very, very poor.
“Mercedes have undoubtedly the fastest driver in Formula One and we all want Lewis to be in a winning car next year and challenging.
“I desperately hope Mercedes will be competitive but either Lewis knows something we don’t or he’s lying in bed at night thinking, ‘What have I done!'”
