Hamilton fears Red Bull Racing and Verstappen: He gets better every year

Lewis Hamilton enters the new Formula 1 season with the chance to become the most successful Grand Prix driver ever. To set those records he will have to beat Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing. He sees that combination as the most formidable opponent.

During the winter tests in Barcelona, Mercedes seemed to become the team to be beaten for 2020. Red Bull Racing, however, came close. So much so, in fact, that Lewis Hamilton was scared. Especially in view of the renewed calendar.

"Max personally also gets better and better every year, so I certainly expect them [Red Bull] to become formidable opponents of us this year. On this track they are always very strong, so the first two races are definitely going to be a challenge for us", says the Mercedes driver to Motorsport.com.

So Hamilton is looking to Verstappen and Red Bull in particular, but also Ferrari doesn't want to flatten out yet. According to him, all three top teams in Barcelona were pretty close together.
