Jul.26 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Niki Lauda has hailed the dominance of Lewis Hamilton this weekend in Hungary.
As Nico Rosberg scratched his head at the nearly 6 tenth gap to his teammate in qualifying, Lewis Hamilton surmised that he has simply mastered his “favourite” Hungaroring circuit.
“The gap that he has on this track is light years in formula one,” Mercedes team chairman Niki Lauda said.
Also on German television, team boss Toto Wolff agreed that while Rosberg suffered from sudden handling problems in qualifying, “Lewis’ last lap was probably unbeatable”.
Lauda added: “He (Hamilton) is conjuring laptimes that no else can conjure at the moment.”
