Lewis Hamilton: I’d only have one Formula 1 title without Niki Lauda

Lewis Hamilton believes he would only be a one-time Formula 1 world champion if not for Niki Lauda.
Lewis Hamilton said that while then-team principal Ross Brawn was the “convincing element” by explaining Mercedes’ plan, Lauda “was the one that brought it to me and got it across the line”.
“If I hadn’t had the call all that time, I would be a one-time world champion now, and probably on 22 wins or whatever it was when I was at McLaren [21 victories],” said Lewis Hamilton.
Lewis Hamilton: “I definitely feel like I owe him a lot.”
“The other day it was quite… I didn’t feel like I was really ready,” Lewis Hamilton explained.
