Hamilton hunted by new generation says Ickx

Lewis Hamilton is being “hunted” by Formula 1’s “new generation”, according to F1 legend Jacky Ickx. The 77-year-old Belgian’s comments come as Hamilton, 37, struggles not only with Mercedes’ uncompetitive 2022 car, but also to keep up with his young new teammate George Russell. At the same time, Hamilton has gone to war with the FIA’s new president Mohammed Ben Sulayem over the reinvigorated push to ban jewellery from the cockpit. Ben Sulayem warns that if the Briton doesn’t comply by Monaco, penalties will be applied. As soon as you can’t maintain it, and you weaken, it goes away very quickly – much faster than the rate at which you grew.”. However, Ickx says Hamilton’s Formula 1 adventure is not necessarily over yet.
