F1 2020: Lewis Hamilton vs Michael Schumacher, the problem for British star’s legacy

Published

on

Lewis Hamilton may go on to win 10 world titles, but his status as the greatest could be undermined by a lack of true rivals, according to two of Britain’s best-known former racers.

Martin Brundle and Damon Hill both agreed that the six-time champion is a relentless and deserved record-breaking success story, Brundle saying he felt privileged to witness his feats.

Hamilton last Sunday became the sport’s most successful driver when he claimed a record 92nd win, moving one clear of seven-time champion Michael Schumacher’s 14-year record of 91 wins.

Hill, the 1996 world champion, believes Hamilton needs to be challenged by and beat another driver of the same calibre if he is to silence the doubters.

“There’s a risk that Lewis’s achievements will be measured against the intensity of his competition,” said Hill, who had to beat Schumacher to win his title.

Within the joy of a first-ever second-place finish, Racing Point owner Lawrence Stroll must have winced last weekend, even if for just a brief moment.

There was Sergio Perez, almost literally on a pedestal, standing in front of the world having finished second at the Turkish Grand Prix.

His appearance on the podium served as a jarring reminder that this immensely talented and experienced F1 driver might not be an F1 driver at all in a few weeks time.

Racing Point doesn’t want him anymore.
