Is it the mercedes cars this year or has Hamilton lost his mojo after the farcical end to last season?

Bit of both I reckon.

Russell doesn't seem to be struggling too much with it does he?

For it to be so close last year, then compare it to now, something has either gone seriously wrong at Mercedes, or Red Bull does indeed give you wings!! 

I've not seen/heard much about Hamilton moaning about it though (could have missed it), so does make you wonder if he's just going through the motions.

Yeah he was undecided about carrying on, wonder if he's seeing how this season pans out?

Toto Wolff has said that Hamilton has been trying the more experimental setups, at the further extreme ends of setup to try to help fix the porpoising. That's not to knock Russell, he's had a perfect start and might well be quicker than Hamilton, but it seems Hamilton has been tasked with trying to fix the car in races rather than push it.

Just like that Mercedes season is over

Feels like it's going to destroy the whole season as Ferrari were at least close to matching the pace of the RB with their bouncing but surely won't touch them if they have to raise the ride height. Unless these teams suddenly find a way to resolve it, it could be a very boring season. 

Small crumb of comfort is that at least after Canada, we go to a few actual racetracks rather than street circuits where the bouncing seems to be contained.

I’m certainly not a Hamilton fan, but I wouldn’t want to see him end his career because the car design makes it impossible for him to put up with the pain inflicted by the design.  
 

Interesting there was a lot of concern for the Ferrari reliability after Sundays race, when Verstappen and Leclerc have 2 technical DNF’s each.  Long way to go yet, some of these cars may well develop more issues with reliability due to the porpoising you can only insulate components from excessive vibration so much.
