He told Standard Sport: “I’d like to see him go to one of the other top three teams and winning a world title elsewhere would add to his curriculum.
“To win a world title for yet another team, that would make him even greater."
Irrespective of whether the British driver decides to call it a day with Toto Wolff and his team or remain at Mercedes, Fittipaldi believes that Hamilton will still go down as one of the greatest F1 drivers in history.
“The numbers don’t lie. I’m sure there’s more winning ahead of him to create history.”
Hamilton is looking to chase down a seventh career drivers championship and equal the record of F1 legend Michael Schumacher, a challenge that the 73-year-old thinks can be accomplished.
“In any sport, it’s all about the numbers. That’s what counts and I think he can break that record. He has the physical condition, the psychological and spiritual condition to go forward.”
