Triple world champion Jackie Stewart said that his compatriot Lewis Hamilton has earned the status as the most successful British driver in Formula 1 history, which until last Sunday belonged to him.
Winning the fourth championship title, Hamilton equal with Michael Schumacher, Juan Manuel Fangio, Alain Prost and Sebastian Vettel.
“For 44 years, I remained the most successful British driver, but records are meant to surpass them. Lewis deserved it, – quotes Stewart MotorsportWeek. – It was a tough decision leaving McLaren and joining Mercedes. For many, including for me, this step was unexpected. But he did the right thing and learned a lot in recent years.
Niki Lauda rightly sent Lewis and from time to time helped him to control emotions. He is a great team, but still it is good to fly and reach the finish line”.
