Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes will not be in a position to fight Max Verstappen and Red Bull in 2024, according to RacingNews365 readers.
In 2023, Red Bull and Verstappen swept all before them, taking 21 and 19 wins respectively from the 22 Grands Prix in a season of dominance never seen before in F1.
As for Mercedes, it went winless for the first time since 2011, as Hamilton endured a second winless season on the trot with the troubled W14.
The W15 has been touted as a radical concept change as Hamilton and Mercedes look to stop Verstappen becoming a four-time champion.
But RN365 readers believe the best Hamilton and Mercedes can hope for is the odd win but that title glory will firmly be out of reach.
Will Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes be able to challenge Max Verstappen and Red Bull in 2024?
|Yes, the W15 will be a title contender out of the box
|They'll run Verstappen close, but it's his title for the taking
|Maybe the odd win, but Verstappen won't be challenged
|No, the gap between them is too big to make up in a single winter
