Formula 1 is not as dangerous as it used to be and there are more races in a season however, pound for pound, he has to be considered as one of the best drivers ever. I think Fangio must have been something special to have won 5 titles in the early days and there is no doubting that Senna was a quality driver. Schumacher was exciting in his early career exceptionally consistent throughout however, if I had to pick one, I would have Hamilton as my greatest of all time.
People may say that he is only winning because he is in the best car but they never seem to ask why he is in the best car. Quite simply, because he is the best driver. If there were better drivers, the top teams would have snapped them up but LH from his very first race in F1, has shown that he is something special.
Check some of the videos of a young cart driver and you will see he had that certain something that made him a winner and even now, at the grand old age of 35, he is just as sharp and brave as the younger drivers and has the consistency that made Schumacher so successful.
Best driver ever in my opinion and a decent bloke too. Some tend not to like him because he is flash and confident but in his line of work he needs to be supremely confident. He has his faults, but don't we all. Would you legally avoid paying as much tax as you do if you had the chance?
Others my have an issue with him for his public support of Black Lives Matter but he certainly gets my vote on what he has done in raising an issue that should not even exist in this day and age.
Well done LH. A great champion and someone our country should be proud of.
