Formula 1 Champion Damon Hill Said Mercedes Should Give Lewis Hamilton More Freedom

Damon Hill: Mercedes could risk losing Lewis Hamilton

"What was seen of Bottas in Williams suggests that he is not on the same level as Lewis, but I also remember that there were those who said that Mansell would never win a Grand Prix and Nigel won a lot because he got an exceptional vehicle and became the world champion". The 32-year-old driver is known for his lavish celebrity lifestyle while maintaining unrivaled performance once on the track. Damon Hill has warned Mercedes that it must treat Hamilton carefully.

Is it just us, or does it feel that we are seeing - and hearing - as much of Nico Rosberg, now that he has retired as when he was racing? "As long as that light is getting switched on from time to time he" ll continue to do it. I would be surprised if he continued to drive past 35 years because he started very young. Like anything in life, to keep something fresh and exciting over a 10 to 20-year period is tough.

'But he has to answer the same questions over and over and some days you can see him glaze over and just go through the process. "He should do like Rosberg and retire if he wins the title this season".

"And when that passion goes, you can fool the people but you can't fool yourself".

"Every sportsman has his peak and if he doesn't stop there will be a decline at some point".

"We respect him as an individual, we respect him as a personality and we respect him as a racing driver". Hamilton ignored the team's orders in a last-minute bid to try and win the world championship.

"Pretty much most drivers are recognized in the auto, but as soon as they are on the red carpet nobody knows the hell who they are", he said. 'Lewis likes to be congratulated on success, to be reminded that he does something exceptional.

'Lewis is edgy, successful and knows his value. "This makes them the best", Wolff told the Guardian. Now, my new life will be as big a challenge as F1 was.
