The unstoppable freight train that is Mercedes running at speed, and with Lewis Hamilton driving like never before, means the drivers' and constructors' championship trophies will have a prominent place reserved for them in the trophy cabinet in Brackley.
Since the summer break Hamilton appears to have matured and his confidence in himself and his consistency is undeniable. Love him or hate him, you have to respect him, and I genuinely believe that he has joined the all-time greats of the sport.
His qualifying laps are always mega and at Suzuka in Q2 his 1m27.819s and in Q3 his laps of 1m27.346s and 1m27.319s were exceptional even by his own high standards. We try to pick holes in Mercedes when it doesn't have a good weekend, but in reality its bad weekends usually only mean it doesn't win.
