Hamilton pays tribute to Schumacher in new documentary

Lewis Hamilton has paid tribute to F1 legend Michael Schumacher in a new documentary called ‘Being Michael Schumacher’, set to air in Germany.

The end of this month marks a decade since Schumacher was seriously injured in a skiing accident.

After his retirement from Formula 1 in 2012, Lewis Hamilton was chosen as the driver to replace him at Mercedes – creating a legacy which is matched only by the German’s Ferrari glory days.

The two sadly never shared a podium together, with Hamilton’s penultimate lap crash at the European Grand Prix in 2012 gifting Schumacher his last podium in the sport.

Hamilton: He won everything

“A full-out great racer,” Hamilton recalled about the Ferrari legend.

“He won the race when Ayrton died. [He was just] winning everything!”
