Jacques Villeneuve: Vettel forced Hamilton to Wake up in the middle of the season

Жак Вильнёв: Феттель заставил Хэмилтона проснуться в середине сезона

World champion 1997 Jacques Villeneuve believes that Lewis Hamilton only in the second half of the season, realized how serious threat in the fight for the title is Sebastian Vettel.

“Lewis was worth to make the start as after a summer break, – quotes Villeneuve Motorsport-Total. I think he relaxed a bit when the team came to Valtteri Bottas, because it did not consider it as a serious contender.

The duel with Nico Rosberg in previous seasons was heavy, so when I changed partner, Hamilton thought, “Finally I’ll be able to easily win the championship.” But then it became clear that Vettel and Ferrari are very competitive. It forced him to Wake up.”
