Mika Hakkinen says F1 fans have a lot to look forward to next season

Mercedes have already claimed the constructor's championship and only a Mercedes driver can win the driver's championship as well. However, former F1 driver Mika Hakkinen believes that Formula 1 is as exciting and competitive as it has ever been. 

"There is a lot to look forward to, because the second half of the season looks like a completely different championship. Ferrari is suddenly unbeatable, but does not know how to turn the speed into a victory every time. If they can avoid organizational and driver mistakes, they can put Mercedes under enormous pressure," said Hakkinen in his Unibet column.

There are no major rule changes for 2020 so it can be expected that there will be no major changes on the grid in terms of pace. Ferrari will hope to start the season better and challenge Mercedes from the start. 

"The final races of this season are essential for the teams to gather information for next year. I expect a fierce battle for the title next season. Red Bull and Honda will do everything to participate in every race for the win and with three teams at the top we have the most competitive field ever in Formula 1," Hakkinen said. 

It will be interesting to see how Formula 1 progresses and if anyone can end Mercedes dominance next season.
