British motorist Lewis Hamilton has secured his sixth Formula One championship in Texas.
He has lots of accolades in his career up to now, such as 87 pole positions and 33 consecutive scoring endings, along with 83 – today 84 – wins, currently near Schumacher’s record tally of 91.
David Coulthard, championship runner-up to Schumacher in 2001 and substitute for Ayrton Senna in Williams in 1994 following the fantastic Brazilian’s fatal crash, implied that wouldn’t be what sets Hamilton aside, however.
“Can he triumph seven (names ) or exceed Michael? Yes, is the answer, obviously, he could,” the Scot told Reuters. “However, I do not believe he’s to or wants to.
“I think he has already cemented his position in complete topnotch history in Formula One and what I think that puts him apart from the greatness of Senna or Schumacher is his first athletic integrity.
“I believe that Lewis is a complete through-and-through sportsman.”
