Poor old Vettel has hit everything but the safety car and made more unforced errors than Pastor Maldonado used to. And though Bottas has greatly improved since last season, I just don't think that he can sustain an attack against Hamilton over the course of a season. As was shown by Rosberg, that sort of effort is draining on the mind and body. Once Verstappen and Leclerc have more competitive equipment (or Mercedes loses a step), then there will be some real competition for Hamilton.
Yea, the F1 generation game shall commence in earnest when Honda catch up to Ferrari and Ferrari sort out their aero issues. As we are seeing in Ladies tennis at the moment, F1 is set for a showdown of its own. It is happening now to Vettel to some extent, but an Alonso type fight with Schumacher for supremacy of the formula is yet to happen.
