Former world champion Damon Hill has admitted he feels Lewis Hamilton could be “almost impossible to beat” this season following the Mercedes driver's fourth consecutive win of the season. Despite the 2014 season being just five races old, Betfair fans have been flocking to back Hamilton for this year's title following his victory in Spain, a result which saw the Englishman climb ahead of team-mate Nico Rosberg at the top of the driver's standings.

While Mercedes have dominated Formula One so far this year, Hamilton hasn't had it all his own way since the start of the year. The 29-year old's season started badly after he was forced to retire from the season-opening Australian Grand Prix with an engine issue, but Hamilton has bounced back in dramatic fashion to claim a faultless victory in Malaysia before holding off Rosberg in an absolute thriller in Bahrain. Another win in China followed for Hamilton, before picking up his fourth consecutive victory of the season in Spain.

With Hamilton now the heavy favourite with Betfair to go on and win this season's drivers' championship, former world champion Damon Hill believes his compatriot still has another level to go before he peaks this year.

“I do wonder if he is just cruising. I think he has another gear. He is so focused on the job, I think he will be almost impossible to beat,” said Hill.

"Nico had two opportunities to beat Lewis - in Bahrain and Spain - but he let them slip through his fingers," said Hill. "That might already be too much to recover from."

While Mercedes and Betfair punters can feel fairly confident about this year's constructors championship, Hamilton will be well aware that his team-mate will push him every step of the way this season. With Rosberg biting at his heels, anything less than full focus this year could prove costly to Hamilton's hopes of adding a second world championship to his collection.
