Formula One legend Alain Prost is convinced that Lewis Hamilton will continue to enjoy the subject of being a first team racer at Mercedes since, according to him, the best racers need the support of their team mate.
A freelancer who has fought hard during his career with his team-mate Ayrton Senna believes that it is much better for an F1 team to have a clearly defined hierarchy within the team.
“Runners like Schumacher and Senna, or now Hamilton, Vettel, as well as Verstappen need racer no. 2. A good example of a successful team is Mercedes, with roles clearly defined. Bottas is a good and fast racer, nevertheless he does not directly threaten Lewis, who is why he is so successful. ”
