It is a great achievement and Schumi is still racing- Hamilton

Published

on

Aug.25 – The German Seven time World Champion Schumacher enjoy his 20 years at the highest level of Formula 1 this weekend as he made his first appearance for Jordan on August 25, 1991, at the Spa circuit [Belgium].

2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton have a big support for seven time worldchampion Michael Schumacher in advance of the Belgian GP.

“It is a great achievement for Michael. I think it is quite cool he is still here, so good on him,” Hamilton said.

Lewis Hamilton confesses he can’t wait to get going again at one of his favourite tracks.

“After nearly a month out of the cockpit, I think every driver on the grid is really looking forward to racing on a track like Spa, which is easily one of the greatest circuits in the world,” he added. Spa’s always been one of my favourite tracks. It’s a place where you really feel on the limit, which is pretty awesome in a Formula One car.

“I’m already looking forward to my first flying lap on Friday, and corners like Eau Rouge, Pouhon and Blanchimont that are fantastic, just because they’re so fast. Pouhon, in particular, is incredible, because you’re really at the limit of the grip level.

“You’re gently playing with the throttle and trying not to scrub off too much speed with the steering. Getting it right is an amazing feeling.”

“We go into the race weekend in a pretty good place as we’ve won the last two grands prix and the car feels strong. He said.

“We’ve worked hard to improve the set-up, so it’s really inspiring confidence at the moment, which means you can push it that little bit further, particularly in qualifying.
Of course, the weekend is likely to be affected by the weather, which is always somewhat unpredictable at Spa. I’d prefer a dry race, but to be honest, I’ll take any track condition. I just can’t wait to get back out in my car.”
