'Don't compare Lewis to greats' (says Sky Sports)
|Lewis Hamilton: F1 world champion 2008/2014/2015|
An inane article but typical of Sky.
Schumacher was not a "great" driver. He had, at that time, a car which was unbeatable and streets ahead of any other team on the F1 circuit. Had you given me that Ferrari, I would have won the world championship.
In contrast, Senna was a "great" driver as was Mansell, and both deserved to be recognised as such. In respect of Hamilton, he may not be particularly likable as a person but he has also achieved the right to be recognised as a "great" driver.
Hamilton is still only 30 and may yet win more world champion titles which would probably put him ahead of Mansell and Senna in the "greatness" list.
