Leclerc, Verstappen or Alonso will be champion at Mercedes just as easily

The Formula 1 season 2020 starts in all respects as it has started in recent seasons: with a dominant Mercedes. It seems that Lewis Hamilton is preparing for his seventh world title. Flavio Briatore doesn't think anyone can stop him.

Briatore I speak to the radio show 'La Politica nel Pallone' on Rai about the dramatic season start of Ferrari. He comes to the conclusion that you can jump high or low, but the car of the Scuderia is simply too slow. No matter which driver you put in it.

Leclerc, Verstappen or Alonso in the Mercedes easily become champion

Mercedes, on the other hand, has shown in the last two weeks that they are once again superior to the rest of the field. Max Verstappen could not do much more than follow and both Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas were able to win a race. It shows for Briatore that the material is once again decisive in Formula 1.

"Lewis Hamilton has a fabulous car. With that superiority, no one is able to stop him. If you put Leclerc, Verstappen or Alonso in a Mercedes, they will become world champions just as easily. But Bottas is a water carrier, unlike Rosberg, who could make things difficult for Lewis and even beat him in the end".
