Formula One News » Allan Mcnish: Lewis Hamilton is main title challenger for Mercedes

Former F1 driver Allan Mcnish believes Lewis Hamilton is the unofficial number 1 at Mercedes and is their main focus for being the 2013 f1 title challenger.

Speaking to BBC sport, Allan Mcnish said “Just look at that conversation over the radio, even though it’s not official, there’s definitely a strong focus on Hamilton being their main challenge for the Championship.”

“They’ve opened their arms to Hamilton and they’ve certainly got their arm round him quite well at the moment.”
“I think he’s definitely been comfortable with what they are going to give him and the changes Mercedes are going to make to the structure of the team – otherwise he wouldn’t have gone there,”

“It was clear that Hamilton was the quickest guy on the grid last year and I’m not surprised he’s had the upper hand over Rosberg in qualifying because I do believe that Hamilton is the fastest guy over one lap. He has brought a fresh lease of life to the team.”

“I actually think Nico has done very well, especially in Malaysia, team-mates have gone up against Hamilton and failed – he’s a tough nut to crack but he’s a World Champion for a reason. So it’ll be interesting to see if Rosberg can keep pushing him.”
