Hamilton: Very suspicious if Red Bull doesn't win Suzuka by 30 seconds

Lewis Hamilton says Red Bull will put in a phenomenal performance at Suzuka F1 after their disappointing Singapore.

Both Red Bull drivers crashed out in the second part of qualifying after not finding the right car settings. Max Verstappen started the race from eleventh place, but by the end he had made his way to fifth. The Austrian team's sudden slump in form coincided with a new technical directive, prompting speculation that the FIA ​​had crippled the previously invincible team by closing loopholes.

But Hamilton believes things will fall back into place at the Japanese GP. "If they don't have a 30-second lead, as usual, it will be very suspicious. But I think they had a bad weekend last time, and here the car should be phenomenal again, as it has been all season until Singapore.” The Mercedes driver added that it will be interesting to watch the behavior of their rival's car: "Usually, when we come here, it's wonderful to watch the laps, because the whole team and the driver with their package do their job perfectly. I hope that we will be closer to them and that in the end they will not have a 30 second advantage.”
