Lewis Hamilton reflects on his season, lockdown and his social justice campaigning after clinching his seventh F1 title. Now level with Michael Schumacher for the most championship titles in F1 history, debate over where Hamilton ranks in the list of the sport’s greatest-ever drivers has inevitably intensified.“I’m not going to say here and now one is better than the other, I think they’re there or thereabouts,” said Rosberg of comparisons between Schumacher and Hamilton.“You’d mention Schumacher, you’d mention Senna, you’d mention Fangio. I would probably filter out those four – Lewis, Senna, Fangio and Schumacher. Who’s the best? It’s just impossible to say but equally in their own way they’ve all been just unbelievable.” Former F1 world champion Nico Rosberg says ex-Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton is now an all-time great after winning a record-equalling seventh world title.

Rosberg: Why rivals should be worried“To beat him you need to get everything 100 per cent perfect otherwise you have no chance.”Rosberg, a team-mate to Hamilton as teenagers in karting long before they both graduated to F1 and competed over the sport’s biggest prize, believe it is ominous for the would-be challengers to hear the newly-crowned seven-time champion already talking of seeking further success and improvement.“I think to hear that for the opposition is going to be a bit of a scary thing!” admitted Rosberg. “For the likes of Bottas or Verstappen or Vettel or whoever else is still out there, if he’s saying it’s just the beginning – my goodness, what’s he going to end up with?“I’m going to be interested to follow his decisions, what he decides to do going forward, since he hasn’t done a contract yet for next year.” 7:52 Lewis Hamilton reflects on his season, lockdown and his social justice campaigning after clinching his seventh F1 title.
