Lewis hamilton entered the history books by clinching his 5th World Championship in Mexico last weekend. The race itself won by Max Verstappen with Sebastian Vettel 2nd. Hamilton's 4th place comfortably giving him the Crown for the 5th time. Now equal with the great Juan Manuel Fangio, greater glories are definitely in reach.
It is misleading to make a comparison with a driver from a different era, but he must be up there with greatest of all time. Take into account today's technology and vastly improved safety and even then, it is difficult not to rate him as the best ever. We all have favourites, of course, mine is Kimi Raikkonen, old school, taciturn, grumpy and super cool.
