Mark Webber does not believe that Ferrari or Red Bull-Honda drivers can beat Lewis Hamilton to the 2020 Formula 1 World Championship title, as the Mercedes driver’s consistency over the course of the season will be his ace card.
Most pundits, including 9-time Grand Prix winner Webber, predict that next year will be hotly contested between all three top teams with Max Verstappen spearheading the Blues and Charles Leclerc leading the charge of the Reds in what should be a riveting season.
“Provided Leclerc and Vettel can score points at least regularly, I think Ferrari looks good for the constructors’ championship,” he told Formule1. But I still think that over the course of the whole season he will be superior, Lewis will win the drivers championship.”
Webber is nonetheless full of praise for Hamilton’s rivals – especially Max Verstappen, “We don’t even have to talk about Verstappen anymore. He is now an established name and is on fire!
“I’m looking forward to seeing if Hamilton can match the seven titles of Michael Schumacher while he has to deal with Leclerc and Verstappen,” Webber added
