Jardine believes in Hamilton
Tony Jardine says he is confident that Lewis Hamilton can repeat the feats of Michael Schumacher over the next few years.
Hamilton won the world championship for the fifth time in a glittering career at the end of 2018, matching the record of the great Argentine Juan Manuel Fangio from the 1950s.
Only Schumacher is now ahead of the Brit in terms of number of championships and races won.
However, the former team official turned pundit Jardine believes Hamilton has the drive to match those achievements.
"I personally think that he's one of the guys that as he gets older, he gets better," Jardine told Express Sport.
"I just think at 35, that's still absolutely fine. You have to look at Damon Hill and Nigel Mansell, they were up into 38, 39. Mansell [was] 40.
"That's a bit past it now and even Schumacher was back in at 38.
"I still think he will be absolutely in his prime and his quote for me was, 'I was born to race and win'. That's what he does.”
