‘He hasn’t forgotten how to drive in the last four races’: Lewis Hamilton is backed to ‘become a factor’ this year by Red Bull chief Christian Horner despite struggles at Mercedes… after his lowly 13th-placed finish in Imola

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has insisted that struggling Lewis Hamilton will ‘become a factor’ this season despite his ailing fortunes with Mercedes. The result was staggering when compared to last year, when superstar Hamilton battled with Verstappen – and lost out – during their thrilling world title charge. During qualifying, Hamilton squeezed through into Q2 by just 0.004s – and only made up a further place on the grid in the race after Esteban Ocon’s penalty. ‘I think Lewis didn’t have a great weekend but we are very much focused on our race and trying to extract the maximum points,’ he added.
