Lewis Hamilton is on track for greatness in Abu Dhabi as he bids for a place among the pantheon of legends with an eighth title win… the Mercedes driver has momentum over rival Max Verstappen and is hungrier than ever

Well, to Monaco in 2007 when I suggested that watching the young Lewis Hamilton might elicit the order of excitement that accompanied the first wicket falling and Bradman coming out to bat. Practically everything has been said, all the shots been played, and now it is down to the two protagonists, Hamilton and Verstappen, to decide it. Hamilton, at 36 compared to Verstappen’s 24, has added guile to his repertoire of skills over the years he has accumulated his 103 wins — an unmatched record, naturally. Hamilton, by contrast, is experienced but totally undimmed in relentless pursuit of the next win. Still, Hamilton is as voracious as ever, raising his game during the crescendo as he has since his first title in 2008. This all reinforces my belief that Hamilton will win his eighth title here on Sunday to enter a new level of sporting fame.
