Ross Brawn highlights Hamilton-Schumacher similarities

Formula One managing director and technical director Ross Brawn says that Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher both share the same special abilities - and Brawn should know, having worked with both men throughout his career in team management.

Brawn worked with Schumacher during initially during his days at Benetton and Ferrari, but is also credited as the man who managed to drag Schumacher out of retirement and back into Formula One with Mercedes in 2010.

When Hamilton moved from McLaren to Mercedes in 2013, Brawn was still in place as the team principal having sold the successful 2009 Brawn GP outfit to Mercedes in 2010.

“They are both massively talented in what they do in the car and those moments where they pull something out of nowhere,” Brawn told The Guardian. “Some of the qualifying laps Lewis has done have left the team speechless. Michael was the same, there are sometimes just those drivers who can do that.”

Brawn added that Hamilton, despite some criticism suggesting that he has only won due to having the superior machinery, has deservedly taken each of his six world titles.

“Lewis has deserved it, he has deserved every championship he has won,” Brawn continued. "He has got himself at the right team at the right time and he is at peak performance. He doesn’t make mistakes and is a fantastic driver, his performance is exceptional.”
