The circus general manager: “Lewis Hamilton is in the sunset.”

Lewis Hamilton is in the twilight of his career, according to Formula 1’s general manager Ross Brawn, who in an interview with Bild had this to say about the seven-time world champion: “Lewis is in the twilight of his career, but that doesn’t mean it’s over yet.”

“He is working very hard to get back to a winning car, which is a kind of test of character for him. It may well be that George Russell is hungrier for results, but Lewis will be back, I’m sure, and so will Mercedes. I think these periods of weakness that you have to overcome make you even stronger. I know this from personal experience.”

Brawn also spoke about Max Verstappen, comparing him to Michael Schumacher: “Verstappen’s dominance at Spa reminded me of Michael Schumacher at his best. When you have a perfect car and drivers like Michael or Max in the cockpit, they drive like they are on another planet. Then you as a spectator almost feel a kind of magic.”
