Formula 1: Lewis Hamilton back to his best, says Mercedes boss

Lewis Hamilton is driving as the best of his abilities, says Mercedes co-team boss Paddy Lowe. Hamilton, who won his only World Championship with McLaren in 2008, is keen on grabbing a third successive Grand Prix victory in China this weekend. "We have seen Lewis arrive this season on top of his game," Lowe said. "He is fit physically. His mental state is brilliant. That gives us great promise for the rest of the year."

Hamilton had a few disappointing seasons after winning the world title in only his second year in Formula 1, he never finished higher than fourth in his four campaigns at McLaren after the world title. He then left McLaren to join Mercedes but he finished fourth again, a whole 208 points behind champion Sebastian Vettel.

This season Hamilton has a revamped car and he took full advantage of it by winning in Malaysia and Bahrain. He is currently 11 points behind team-mate Nico Rosberg in the drivers' championship. Paddy Lowe expects Hamilton to build on those results. "His experience over all the years he has spent in F1 means he has all the ingredients to have a fantastic season," said the Mercedes executive director. "We saw that in both qualifying sessions this year and the race in Malaysia. We saw the old Lewis at work there, in total command of the race."

Here are the outright odds at Bet365 for this weekend's Chinese Grand Prix:

Lewis Hamilton - 8/11
Nico Rosberg - 2/1
Sebastian Vettel - 16/1
Daniel Ricciardo - 25/1
Felipe Massa - 33/1

    Lewis Hamilton is a good driver and always among the best . although no one can be the best as Mikhail sumaher , he is simply unique when it comes to formula 1 and the largest is the champion of all time . I hope you will recover soon and that everything will be fine . so that he could go back on track and to show how it drives all participants and competitors . now it's easy when you have no competition .
