…or maybe not?

F1 Racing (UK) - - INBOX -

Although Lewis Hamilton will re­ceive plau­dits and calls for a Knight­hood, let us re­mem­ber that it has come as a re­sult of be­ing in the best team, in the best car and with a com­pli­ant team-mate.

The true cham­pi­ons can be found in other places on the grid such as Max Ver­stap­pen, whose ex­hil­a­rat­ing rac­ing style flag him up as a fu­ture champion. A true racer who has shown a de­sire to go wheel-to-wheel and will not give any quar­ter.

Then there is Esta­ban Ocon. Out qual­i­fy­ing his team-mate on many oc­ca­sions, but strug­gling to find a seat for 2019.

True cham­pi­ons don’t al­ways fin­ish first! Adrian Townsend By email
