Moss: Hamilton’s the best

Stirling Moss has added his voice to the growing chorus of Lewis Hamilton fans by claiming that Hamilton is the best he’s ever seen.

Taking to newspaper The Mirror, Moss said, “I would be surprised and disappointed if Lewis didn’t win the world championship. I have been connected with motor racing for 60 years and he is the best I’ve ever seen. I feel sorry for his McLaren team mate Fernando Alonso because in any other era, he would be looking at years of supremacy – but suddenly this guy he’d probably never heard of has come along.”

High praise indeed for a man famed for his rivalry with Juan Manuel Fangio in the 1950s and who both helped usher in a golden age in Formula 1.
