Former Formula 1 driver Jan Lammers believes Lewis Hamilton makes mistakes more often than not. However, only this season is he going to be punished for them given the renewed threat Red Bull and Max Verstappen are carrying.
Hamilton won seven world titles and is aiming to win his eighth. He and his team Mercedes have been dominant on the grid for recent years.
Lammers, however, believes it’s only because Hamilton has had such a dominant car in recent years that we’ve not noticed the errors he has made.
Quoted by RacingNews365, Lammers claimed: “Hamilton makes mistakes more often than not. His mistakes were never punished because he drove the best car and always got away with it.
“Often Hamilton is there at the moments that matter, but especially at Imola you saw everyone was vulnerable because of the circumstances.”
