On paper, this new Formula 1 season already looks like Mercedes is dominating because they have three races, three one-two finishes. The last time a team started a season this strongly was in 1992. But that was a case of their car being miles ahead of everything else. Mercedes have been far the stronger team, and Ferrari has a number of problems to sort out.
Mercedes have started the season so well – and been so successful since 2014 due to the following reasons;
Firstly, Lewis Hamilton, he’s the best driver in the current field, and maybe the best Formula 1 driver ever.
He single-handedly took the fight to Ferrari, in Bahrain. Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas couldn’t offer anything against Ferrari.
In China, the Ferrari drivers had nothing to offer the fight at the front.
