Lewis Hamilton wants to be respected

The multiple Formula 1 champion got tired of being underestimated for being in a great team.

Despite his seven titles in the F1 and the records that he has already reached in the highest category, there are many people who still doubt - incredibly - the talent of English Lewis Hamilton. Although the multiple champion does not usually talk much about the subject, it seems that he reached his limit.

“I would like there to be more complicated races like the one in Turkey, in conditions like those, the more occasions there are of this type, the more times I will be able to show what I am capable of. I deserve the respect, it was a very hard Sunday in which you don't depend on the car ", shot Hamilton.

“There is another great driver who drives my car (NdR: Finn Valtteri Bottas, his partner) and obviously he doesn't finish like me. I hear interesting comments from great drivers, especially from the past. Of course you need a great team and a great car, nobody has won the World Cup any other way ”, he clarified.

To show that everything he has achieved has cost him a lot, Hamilton recalled his time in karting. “I was driving a fifth-hand kart with a shitty engine. In my first championship, the guy who won had some very good engines that Jenson Button's father made. I remember when the boy was upgraded, my father had to remortgage the house to buy one of those for £ 2.500. When they put him in my car, he was in front the whole time. Of course you need good material, but what you do with it also counts and I hope that this could be seen in Turkey ”, culminated.
