After a two-week break after a grueling triple header in Formula 1, the Formula 1 circus descends on Sochi, Russia. Who is the big favorite? Max Verstappen or Lewis Hamilton? Jan Lammers must not answer the question in conversation with RacingNews365.
Former Formula 1 driver Jan Lammers is currently enjoying Formula 1.
Why? “Formula 1 is completely unpredictable at the moment,” said Lammers. It makes him unable and unwilling to venture a prediction. Not for the Grand Prix of Russia, but also not for the following Grands Prix.
“Just when you think Monza is a Mercedes circuit, Max Verstappen is on pole position. Who could have thought that?” continues Lammers, who indicates that the unpredictability he appreciates does not only apply to the lead of the Formula 1 field.
“Both the McLarens and the AlphaTauri of Pierre Gasly as well as the Ferraris and the Alpines suddenly go very fast at unpredictable moments, so that is very special! A lot of names are going to get involved in that battle. And that is in addition to the The battle between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton is also just great fun.”
But if Formula 1 can finally deliver the show people want to see, isn’t it a shame that the rules are being overhauled next year? Lammers doesn’t see it that way: “That also makes it exciting again, because you can just have a Haas F1 or a Williams that is suddenly dominant. We all really have no idea. Who has translated those regulations best? Yes, say it!”
