Lewis Hamilton and Bernie Ecclestone Interview

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

Q: For a 41 year-old the performance of Michael Schumacher wasn’t too bad…
Bernie Ecclestone: It has nothing to do with age. I’m already 79, so be careful what you’re saying!
Lewis Hamilton: Obviously some people don’t age. Like Bernie and Michael. Don’t forget, he’s still a seven-time world champion, even if he wasn’t at the very top in Bahrain. Though I’m sure that it did not go unnoticed that Nico (Rosberg) was faster than him all weekend.

Q: And what do you draw from that?
LH: That Nico was the faster one. You could see that most clearly in qualifying, where there are no differences in fuel load and it is all about pure speed. Nico was clearly faster.

Lewis Hamilton's Main Competitor in 2010 Poll Results

Fernando Alonso has received the most votes for being Lewis Hamilton’s competitor by a country mile. Which seems to reflect his win in Bahrain last weekend.

Jenson Button and Michael Schumacher are relatively close together followed by Sebastian Vettel. I would have thought that Vettel would be most competitive after Alonso, as he as proven to be very good. We don’t know how Michael Schumacher was going to do so he’s a bit of an unknown and it also largely depends on how Mercedes GP improve. But he’s always going to be a threat.

It was also surprising that Nico Rosberg received so few votes as he’s a quality driver!

The 2010 Formula 1 season is certainly going to be interesting.

Poll results in %:
Fernando Alonso – 38.07%
Jenson Button – 19.62%
Michael Schumacher – 18.22%
Sebastian Vettel – 13.62%
Felipe Massa – 8.03%
Mark Webber – 1.28%
Nico Rosberg – 1.16%
