Eddie Jordan, whose eponymous team won four Grand Prix in 15 years of competition in F1, believes that the pilot Mercedes Lewis Hamilton will not leave anyone a chance to fight for the title in 2017.
Eddie I am sure that Lewis is eager to take revenge for last year defeat from Nico Rosberg.
“Last year Hamilton was a shock,’ said Jordan in an interview AUTOSPORT.com. – He seemed to have gone on summer break unbeaten. The impression that he controlled the course of events, but then suddenly lost concentration.
And Rosberg – who will say that he got lucky, and someone – that he won the title deservedly, took his chance and won the championship.
Hamilton realizes that he was supposed to be a four-time world champion, but didn’t want them. He will do everything possible not to let it happen twice.
Even if Rosberg left Hamilton partner, I think Lewis would still have won in 2017, because he has not forgotten about the failure of last year.
Don’t be surprised if in 2017, Hamilton will destroy all his rivals”.
In addition, Jordan believes that Mercedes rookie Valtteri Bottas will be the British serious competition.
“Whether Bottas strong enough to impose struggle? – continued Jordan. Even if he becomes the winner of the Grand Prix of Australia, you can imagine that he would be consistently winning over a calendar of 20 races? I don’t.
No matter how good Bottas, it will take him time to learn the car and meet the team. This will play into the hands of Lewis.
I think Hamilton will be world champion in four races before the end of the season.”
