Hamilton won’t be appreciated until he’s retired – Wolff | 2019 F1 season

Lewis Hamilton won’t be fully appreciated for his talents until after he retired from Formula 1, his team principal Toto Wolff believes.
Wolff said Hamilton ranks as “the best we have ever seen” alongside Michael Schumacher, the seven-times champion he replaced at Mercedes in 2013.
However Wolff believes Hamilton’s ability won’t be fully acknowledged until after he leaves F1.
“We’re only going to realise when he retires one day,” Wolff told the Middle East newspaper The National.
Hamilton has won 73 grands prix, leaving him 18 shy of the all-time record held by Schumacher, which he could reach this year or next.
