Dutch pundit Rob Kamphues doubts Lewis Hamilton could win an eighth title even if he joined a Red Bull-filled Aston Martin team in 2025.
Hamilton not winning a single grand prix since Abu Dhabi 2021 is not something anyone saw coming.
Writing in his Formule 1 Magazine column, he said: “Could something have snapped in the great champion? Lewis hasn’t won a race since that day, he hasn’t achieved pole, he’s never even started from the front row.
“In 2022 he also finished behind his younger team-mate in the championship and that younger team-mate also won the only race Mercedes won. Not to mention this season.
“It also seems that the era of Mercedes is over. The idea that the empire is collapsing is also confirmed by the transfer of team boss-designate James Vowles to Williams and the departure of Lewis’ beloved physio Angela Cullen.
“So in a row it’s clear as a lump, right?”
