Christian Horner: 'Lewis Hamilton in contention for world title'

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner believes that Lewis Hamilton can mount a serious challenge for the Formula 1 world title.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has insisted that Lewis Hamilton can challenge Sebastian Vettel for the Formula 1 world title.

The Mercedes driver cut Vettel's lead at the top of the standings to 38 points on Sunday by winning the Hungarian Grand Prix.

When asked if the Brit was still a contender for the championship with nine races to go, Horner told Sky Sports News: "Yeah for sure.

"It is his first win this year, but there is still a long way to go and you can't discount any of them."

The season continues on August 23 at the Belgian Grand Prix.
