DriveTribe F1 podcast: Why do so many F1 fans not rate Lewis Hamilton?

49w ago


Lewis Hamilton has now won FIVE World Championship titles – a feat only achieved by two other men, Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher.

Both of those drivers are revered as two of the best to ever get behind the wheel of a Grand Prix car. The question is, why is Hamilton not afforded the same respect by so many fans?

Despite his incredible success in F1, the Mercedes star remains one of the most divisive figures the sport has ever seen.

Ex-F1 driver and Channel 4's pitlane pundit Karun Chandhok joins us again to discuss this, plus where Sebastian Vettel goes from here, whether Max Verstappen can make it a three-way title fight in 2019, and how Dan Ricciardo can change his terrible luck.
