Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton's fans are concerned about the future of both the team and this great driver. Hamilton has not known about winning for two seasons, and coming out of the crisis can be very difficult. Jenson Button is one of those who are still optimistic. The former F1 driver expects Hamilton to do great things. In addition, Button thinks Max had a much more difficult season than some think.

“Red Bull are going to be at the front again next year,” -Jenson Button said, as quoted by crash.net!

"They had a strong car this year and they've been able to work on next year's car. The thing is, if you just look at the results of the race, you go, 'oh max verstappen won again'. But when you actually watch the races, there have been some amazing races this year.

Max hasn't had it all his own way. He's come out on top in the end but there have been some great fights this season. I have enjoyed the year. Would I like more people winning? Yes of course. But it's just not happened.”

Button had the chance to be Hamilton's teammate. Given Lewis's mentality, Button believes Hamilton can use this opportunity to his advantage next year. Victory will be imperative!

"Lewis wouldn't race if he didn't think he wasn't good enough. Lewis is definitely good enough to win races and to win a championship - with the right car."

Many hope that we will see the duels between Hamilton and Max Verstappen again, as in the seasons behind us. The Dutchman has shown many times so far that he is hungry for success. Red Bull will aim for the title this season as well, but many expect that Mercedes has fixed a lot of things.

"Coming up against Max is difficult but if Lewis is in a car that suits him and max is in a car that suits him... I look forward to that fight. Hopefully we will see it before lewis retires, he's definitely got the ability to do that."
