‘Lewis has title edge’: Formula One veteran John Watson tips Hamilton to triumph over rival Max Verstappen ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix

Deep in the damp, rolling hills of the Ardennes Forest, Formula One returns after the summer break. Even if Hamilton is, as I agree, the more rounded driver, he was the one blamed by the stewards for pressing his claims too far at Copse. Not only does Hamilton’s knowhow indicate he could end the season with a record eighth title, the Silverstone smash also robbed Verstappen of one of his Honda engines. I put it to Watson that the box-office line-up at Mercedes next year is Williams’ 23-year-old talent George Russell alongside Hamilton: the great but ageing Lewis against the prince who would be king. He has repeatedly tried to reboot himself only to fail yet again to match Hamilton. ‘But it depends how much of a say Lewis might have in it.
