Another another troubled weekend in Baku, Hamilton's deficit to Nico Rosberg blew back out to 24 points as he declared: "It's looking like a good year for Nico."
However, former F1 driver Webber told Austria's Servus TV: "I think Lewis can still win the title. He's dangerous and fast when he's in the right mood.
"If he can show every weekend what he can do, he can still make it difficult for Nico."
By the same token, Webber said it is possible that Rosberg will also keep his nose ahead in 2016 and lift his first F1 title.
"As long as Nico does not have to deal with the 'real' Lewis too often, he has a chance," he said.
The championship continues with the Austrian Grand Prix on July 3.
