Schumacher defends Hamilton after 90 percent jibe

Mick Schumacher has defended Lewis Hamilton, after Max Verstappen said recently that “90 percent” of all F1 drivers could win in the dominant Mercedes. Schumacher suggested that when people critique the sort of sporting dominance that his own father Michael and fellow seven time world champion Hamilton enjoyed, they often “overlook things”. “When we look at champions who are very dominant during certain periods, there is often the risk that we will overlook things,” the 21-year-old German told Corriere della Sera newspaper. “This discussion applies to Lewis Hamilton as well as to my father,” Schumacher insisted. “I have never have a problem looking back at my father’s career when people try to compare us,” said Schumacher.
