Former Mercedes engineer: Lewis Hamilton is not like Michael Schumacher

Lewis Hamilton is under heavy criticism as he has one of the worse seasons this year. Former Mercedes engineer Philipp Brandle compared Lewis Hamilton to Michael Schumacher. “Lewis needs to have confidence in the car, which is very important to him.

He’s not like [Michael] Schumacher and doesn’t have the technical background. But he can feel the car particularly well”. - he said, as quoted by mirror. Jacques Villeneuve, also a legendary F1 driver, believes Hamilton is far from Schumacher or Senna.

Villeneuve confirmed what many have been saying and that is that Hamilton has a superior car compared to others and that is why he has dominated for several years. "I don't know. "Michael and Ayrton won in cars who shouldn't have won, in complicated situations without the help of their teams.

Lewis has always dominated with the best car and the support of the entire team. We would have to see what he does without those two conditions."

Fernando Alonso: He had that little something

Fernando Alonso has had a lot to say about Lewis Hamilton lately.

Alonso supported his colleagues and is also of the opinion that Schumacher and old school F1 legends are much better than Hamilton. “I remember Michael as a driver who is hard to beat, one with the greatest talent. He had that little something.

Lewis is very good and the best of his generation. But he didn't win the world title with McLaren when he was a teammate of Jenson [Button]. "At Mercedes, Nico Rosberg also won the world championship. Michael never had such competition.

He always won. For me, Michael is one step ahead." One bad season will change the opinion of many about you, and Hamilton will have to work hard to silence critics. He has a long season ahead of him, and maybe this motivates him to show everything he can.
