Is Hamilton as Good as Senna?

Is Hamilton as good as Senna? Well, according to the mighty Gerhard Berger, yes he is! In fact, in a recent interview DTM series head honcho Berger said that of all the world champs over the years since he raced with Aryton Senna, Lewis Hamilton is the only one to ever be on the same level as the much loved and respected Senna.

Why is He So Good?

According to Berger, it isn’t really about why or where. It’s about the fact that Hamilton is simply always “there”. No matter the conditions – wet, fast, street, open circuit, dry… – he is always competitive and, barring any very uncommon mistakes, he is always in the running. You might think after all his wins he might be happy to take his foot off, literally. But no, he is as driven (excuse the multiple puns) now as he always was.

Berger went on to discuss the fact Lewis can handle a 2nd place, he knows he gets the points and he simply puts them in the bank and gets right back in there for another round. Berger is also keen to point out that Hamilton makes far less mistakes than others. While he does have his moments, making fewer mistakes means the odds are better every time he races.

Will He Beat Schumacher’s Record?

Mr Berger thinks he might do! He may well go past the 7th world championship point provided he is healthy, and he is still able to race. In fact, he goes on to say that while there have been a handful of true racing legends including Michael Schumacher, Lewis is a cut above and sits on a different level with only one companion: Senna!

It’s the Car!

We all know Mercedes have had an amazing car for quite a few seasons now but the interview claims it is more than that. Yes, the engine is great but it needs Lewis to be behind the wheel to create the magic he has shown time and again. He is “outstandingly fast” and will carry on winning for some years to come.

People so often focus on football when they think of England and Britain in sport but they should all take a moment to remember we have a British driver who just might be the best driver of all time if he keeps going. Now that’s something to be proud of!
