Lewis Hamilton is now in a far better frame of mind for winning the world title this year. That is the opinion of Formula 1 driver turned television commentator Martin Brundle, who believes his compatriot is now the ‘happiest’ he has been for some time.
Hamilton’s victory in Budapest marked his second of the season and was a major boost for the McLaren driver, who heads into the summer break fourth in the standings.
“Lewis Hamilton was the happiest and most open that I've seen him for ages,” Brundle, who was dropped by Jordan after 1996, wrote on the Sky Sports website.
“He's become a Twitterholic, he left the circuit embracing his dad and he was much more approachable and not charging around the place head down, under a cap, and behind dark glasses.
“He answered media questions with polite charm and engagement. From Friday morning until the chequered flag on Sunday afternoon he looked like the man most able and determined to win the race, in and out of the car.
"He's put himself back in the title hunt and a happy Lewis in that upgraded McLaren can clearly be a major force every race now.”
Championship leader Fernando Alonso carries an advantage of 40 points over Mark Webber, but continues to view Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel as his main rivals.
