Hakkinen Believes Hamilton Can Be The Greatest

hamhakkTwo-time Formula One world champion Mika Hakkinen believes Lewis Hamilton could become the greatest Formula One driver ever. Hamilton is the first British driver to win the championship since 1996 and is also the youngest to achieve the feat at only 23. Hamilton won four races and finished the season in second place in 2008, which was his rookie season. Hakkinen, a former McLaren driver himself, sees no reason why Hamilton can’t become the greatest Formula 1 driver if he continues to progress.

“Lewis drives so fast, he is always going to make mistakes,” Hakkinen stated. “Driving like that makes anything possible.”

“I just do not see why he cannot become the best there is. He is only in his second year in Formula One and that is a very high-pressure environment. But he deals with it. He has youth and talent on his side. He can be the greatest.”
