Bernie Ecclestone tips Lewis Hamilton for F1 title

Bernie Ecclestone has ditched Felipe Massa and tipped Lewis Hamilton to win this year's title race.

"I think the odds slightly favor Hamilton now," said the most powerful man in world motorsport. "I've said since the start of the season Massa would do it for Ferrari.

"But looking at what Hamilton is doing in all areas generally, he's the one who is more likely to win it now."

Hamilton's next test comes in six days' time, before an FIA Court of Appeal in Paris, over the Belgian GP overtaking controversy.

"I'll move on whatever the result and then focus on getting more points in the next races," said Hamilton.
