"Lewis has been having a hard time out there today." said the German, who had been critical of how Hamilton has dealt with the difficulty to drive Mercedes, as the former world champion continues "Lewis lost his way out there. It will be tough for Lewis to come back,"
Although when talking with Sky Sports the 36-year-old wasn't all negative, as he had quite a bit of praise for Hamilton's teammate, George Russell, "We know the Mercedes car is difficult to drive here, but George has stuck with it. He's found this flow, once he finds that rhythm and flow he is making incredible progress. He's in a fight with Lando for best of the rest."
