Rosberg lost the title in July says Montagny

Rosberg lost the title in July says Montagny

Lewis Hamilton may now be a sure bet to win his third consecutive world championship this year.

Earlier with a 43-point deficit to Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg, a winning streak has seen Hamilton race into the summer break with a 19-point lead.

“He has become a winning machine,” said Italy’s La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Spain’s Marca said the month of July was a “slap in the face” for Rosberg with no less than four defeats, while even Germany’s Bild wondered: “Tick-tack – title gone?”

Team boss Toto Wolff left Hockenheim agreeing that, “on a good day”, Hamilton is basically “unbeatable”.

The 31-year-old Briton doesn’t deny it.

“I didn’t know he (Wolff) would say that. I never feel invincible or unbeatable, but I do feel when I’m at my strongest, number one is where I will be.”

Former F1 driver Franck Montagny suspects Hockenheim may be a big psychological blow for Rosberg, after dominating the weekend, setting pole but then messing up the start and struggling in the race.

“For me, Nico Rosberg has lost the championship,” the Frenchman told Le Point newspaper.

“I don’t know if he will really enjoy the break now. I suspect he will be constantly looking for solutions, calling his engineers, and ultimately not resting.

“In any case, I am quite sure that Hamilton will take full advantage of the break,” Montagny added.
