Hamilton 'humbled' to be asked for advice by young chargers

Hamilton 'humbled' to be asked for advice by young chargers

Lewis Hamilton has declared himself humbled when young drivers ask for his advice but has warned: "I won't have all the answers to everything".

Statistically, Hamilton is on the verge of becoming the greatest Formula 1 driver of all time as he is closing in on a record-equalling seventh world title, while he is just two wins away from overhauling Michael Schumacher's mark of 91 career victories.

With this level of success and experience comes the mirage of someone who may know it all, and as such Hamilton finds himself often being asked for advice.

But as he concedes: "It is an honour and quite humbling to be in a position where people ask questions.

"At the end of the day, I won't have all the answers to everything but hopefully, I can either find them or at least contribute to them in some way shape or form."

Of the current crop of young drivers currently racing in F1, eight of whom are aged 25 or under, Hamilton can appreciate why he is asked for advice, despite the competitive environment in which they all exist, given his own past experience.

"We have got some incredibly great drivers here and I think it is very strange to be competing with people and be asked for those sort of things, but there is a lot of respect I think that goes both ways," added Hamilton.

"I remember what it is like when I was 22. I know how tough and competitive it is and the ups-and-downs we have as athletes and as men.

"I have been there, done that and bought the t-shirt so I can only put across my point of view. It is not necessarily how they go through things."
