“I feel that were anybody else in his shoes, they wouldn’t even be in the picture, yet Hamilton finds a way and makes it look easy by the end.”
“He always seems to and that is the hallmark of a fantastic champion.
“He is to Formula 1 what Roger Federer has been to tennis in years gone by.
“Someone who can sometimes look down and out, but who then sees a glimmer of light – even from two sets down – and from there perform a stunning comeback, after which you wonder why you ever doubted it would happen.”
Hamilton’s £40million-a-year Mercedes deal expires next month but a renewal is set to be completed in the coming weeks.
