Sir Jackie Stewart says it is ‘hard to justify’ calling Lewis Hamilton the greatest F1 driver of all time and doesn’t even pick him in his top three because his Mercedes car is so superior it’s ‘almost unfair on the rest of the field’

Formula One legend Sir Jackie Stewart doesn’t count six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton among his top three greatest drivers of all time. But Stewart, 81, believes it is too difficult to compare eras of the sport and that Hamilton’s Mercedes is ‘so superior’ it is ‘almost unfair on the rest of the field.’. Lewis Hamilton is on course to win a seventh Formula One world title – but Sir Jackie Stewart doesn’t consider the Mercedes driver among the sport’s all-time greatest. Three-time world champion Stewart, 81, says it is ‘hard to justify’ including Hamilton among the greats as his Mercedes car is ‘so superior’ to the rest of the field. Hamilton’s Mercedes has left the rest of the field trailing in its wake in most races this year. But Stewart denied the allegation that Formula One has been resistant to change.
