The picture of Michael Schumacher generates a lot of emotion and pride. The German is one of the best drivers in the history of the Formula 1 and it is a symbol of world sport. However, he also has several detractors due to his attitudes within the court. In the last hours, a tremendous accusation became known and the followers of the ‘Kaiser’ are very upset.
This Tuesday, the former CEO of McLaren, Martin Whitmarsh, was consulted again about the comparison that occurred these days between Michael Schumacher and Lewis hamilton. The British engineer had no filter when talking about the attitudes of ‘Schumi’ and was very annoyed. He also threw flowers at Lewis Hamilton, who was a McLaren in its early years.
Speaking to ‘Motorsport Magazine’, the engineer recalled the moments shared with ‘Schumi’ on the track. “I never really understood Schumacher as I should have. It was always the enemy, the one who played dirty and tried to cheat against my pilot, so I’m not objective about Michael. “
Lewis is ruthless
On the other hand, Whitmarsh praised Hamilton assuring that he is a person worthy of admiration. “Lewis is ruthless, but he wants to win in a genuinely honest and honorable way. I think that did not matter to Schumacher. You have to admire people who maintain a degree of innocence and sincerity, like Lewis and Mika (Hakkinen), who never made a dirty move »
Comparison with Ayrton Senna
Closing the interview, Whitmarsh recalled his best drivers and made a comparison between Hamilton and Senna. «I have many happy memories of Jenson Button, Mika, Kimi Raikkonen, Juan Pablo Montoya, even of Fernando Alonso. They are extraordinary people for many things, but the two to stand out from my personal experience, who have had an incredible aura are Ayrton senna and Lewis Hamilton.
