Ecclestone expects Hamilton to bounce back
F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone is convinced world champion Lewis Hamilton will bounce back from a difficult start to the season and challenge for the title.
The Brit is already 43 points behind Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg, after just four races, having endured technical issues throughout the early part of the season.
“He’s been a bit unlucky this year,’ Ecclestone told ITV. “I think he’ll win the Championship but he’s just been a bit unlucky.”
“He could be a lot more upset. He’s upset for sure cause he’s a guy who’s used to winning and doesn’t want to be second but to be second with all the problems he’s had is very good.”
