Hamilton’s Answer On Whether He or Schumacher Is The GOAT.

Lewis Hamilton is frequently cited by many as the greatest F1 racer of all time, although Michael Schumacher and others are also in the conversation. Lewis Hamilton says he prefers to let his performance do the talking and has refrained from commenting on claims that he is the greatest F1 driver.

According to statistics, the Englishman is the most accomplished driver of all time, just ahead of Michael Schumacher, and there has naturally been much discussion regarding who was the superior driver between the two.

The results of Hamilton’s Formula One career speak for themselves. The 37-year-old is the all-time leader in the history of the sport with 103 victories. He and Schumacher share the prestige of having won seven world championships. He is the top-ranked driver in terms of the most pole positions, podium finishes, and laps led.

These statistics suggest that Hamilton is the greatest driver of all time on paper, but given that he has competed in more Grands Prix than his predecessors, there is still a great deal of controversy regarding the GOAT debate.

The Mercedes driver is frequently likened to drivers such as Schumacher, Ayrton Senna, and Jim Clark, with opinions on who is the greatest yet still generally divided.

In response to the debate, Hamilton has said that he would rather remain focused on the track than get sucked into “who is the best” conversations. Taking after his father, Anthony, the 37-year-old said that he had always been that way.

In response to the question of whether he was the best driver of all time, he said on Jimmy Kimmel Live: “I know what I am, I know how good I am but I don’t really like to talk about it. I like to just do the talking on the track”

“That’s what my dad always said. When I was a kid when we were racing, we were on the receiving end of a lot of discrimination because we were the only people of colour on the racetrack. My dad said just do my talking on the track 

“So even today I don’t feel like I need to say anything. I just let my what I’m doing on the circuit, what I’m doing off the circuit kind of talk.” 

The number of consecutive seasons in which at least a single race is won by a particular driver is another record that Hamilton has achieved. 15 have been recorded thus far, dating back to his first year with McLaren in 2007.

With just three events remaining in the season and no Grand Prix victories to his name, he is, however, in grave danger of seeing the streak stop. The Formula 1 GOAT debate is going to continue forever, but it’s fascinating to notice that at this point in his career, Hamilton doesn’t appear very concerned about it.
