London, Aug.5 (ANI): Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton will experience more title agony this season, says former world champion Damon Hill.
Hill, who has put his money on Ferraris Kimi Raikkonen, said: If you had asked me before Sunday who Id put my money on, I would have said Lewis. But I would want my bet back now. Id be saying, Wait a moment, that Ferrari looks strong. Id put my money on Raikkonen.
Hamilton missed out on the drivers crown by a point last year after Raikkonen overturned a 17-point deficit in the last two races. But the McLaren ace increased his lead in Budapest this weekend when Felipe Massas Ferrari engine blew up with three laps to go.
The Brazilian will start eight points behind Hamilton when the battle resumes at Valencias new street circuit on August 24.
Lewis looked a bit dejected.Hed have been thinking Im on pole and Im going to win, The Sun quoted Hill, as saying. (ANI)
