Webber predict Hamilton for third F1 title


Ex- F1 veteran Mark Webber is worried, the 2015 F1 championship is already over – and he predicts that defending world champion Lewis Hamilton will win third F1 title.

Seven races remaining in the 2015 F1 season, main title rival Nico Rosberg is facing a gradually more complicated mission to claw his way back into contention and deny his teammate a third championship.

The German was retired from last race weekend’s Italian GP with three laps remaining, and the pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton’s victory resulted the gap at the top of the standings expand to 53 points.

“It’s over, that’s all over,” said Webber when asked about the title fight between Hamilton and his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg.

“Lewis is completely on fire at the moment,” Webber told Reuters in an interview to promote the publication in the UK of his book Aussie Grit: My Formula One Journey.

“Lewis is going to finish the end of the year as a three-time world champion and then it’s in his court to keep that drive and hunger going.”

“With how the cars are now and next year is going to be a tall order for Nico to get the high ground,” he said.

“Lewis is in a phenomenally confident window at the moment, so that’s going to be hard.”

Webber came close to winning the drivers’ title with Red Bull back in 2010, only to lose out to teammate Sebastian Vettel at the final race of the year.

“The year after [coming second] is probably the hardest. In my personal opinion it was,” said Webber.
