Hamilton a contender for years to come

November 4, 2008

Lewis Hamilton will only get stronger over the next decade even if, as Formula One's youngest champion said on Monday, he has no burning desire to break Michael Schumacher's records.

  • The Briton has won nine of his 35 grands prix, started on pole 13 times, scored more points (207) and taken more podiums (22) than any other driver in that time period.

    Schumacher, winner of seven titles and 91 grands prix, had savoured just one victory by the time he was the same age as Hamilton.
