Jenson button believes that the season-2017 Lewis Hamilton is very lucky that is compensation for failure in 2016.
In 2016, Hamilton often had problems with reliability, including the Grand Prix of Malaysia, when he was in the lead, but failed because of his Mercedes engine.
In 2017 Lewis finished all 16 races while his main rival in the overall standings Sebastian Vettel had an accident in Singapore and in Malaysia and Japan on his car there was a malfunction with the power plant Ferrari.
Now Lewis ahead of Vettel with 59 points in the standings four races before the end of the season.
When the reporter AUTOSPORT.com asked Button, who is the favorite champion of the race, Jenson replied: “I’d say Lewis because he has a huge margin of points.
I know that the situation can change quickly, but if we talk about reliability, the technology of Mercedes this season is very strong.
We can say that this year, luck returned the favor Lewis over the last year. In 2016 he was desperately unlucky due to equipment failures. In 2017, the situation is different.”
