“Lewis Hamilton tennis player? We’d all be in trouble!”
“Baby Lewis: I love the t-shirt you wore in your baby photo. In any case, luckily you chose motorsport over tennis, otherwise we’d all be in trouble,” said Novak Djokovic of Lewis Hamilton, the seven times Formula 1 World Champion.
The British Drivier posted a picture of him as a child wearing a tennis racket shirt on social media. Hence Djokovic’s ironic comment, which shows respect and strength towards the Mercedes driver. The peculiarity of the t-shirt worn by Hamilton was revealed by the Formula 1 world champion himself on Instagram, posting a photo in which he appeared with a white t-shirt with a yellow logo and a print of a racket.
Hamilton is considered one of the greatest drivers of all time and, together with Michael Schumacher, the most successful champion in the history of Formula 1.
He has won 7 world titles: in 2008 with McLaren and in 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018 , 2019 and 2020 with Mercedes.
Djokovic and Hamilton
He is also the driver with the most wins (95), podiums (165) and pole positions (98) in the history of the competition.
It stands out for its very aggressive driving style, for its speed in qualifying and for its solidity in the race as well as for its dexterity in the wet, characteristics that make it a complete and very difficult driver for rivals.
Since his debut in the top category, Hamilton has won at least one race and one pole position during the world championship, making him the only driver in the history of the highest formula to have succeeded from the first season for fourteen consecutive years.
With seven world titles he is the most successful Briton of all time, as well as the only Anglo-Saxon to have managed to triumph for four consecutive editions (in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020). About Novak Djokovic, over the last few years the Serbian champion has reached record after record and in recent weeks has come yet another success thanks to overtaking Roger Federer as regards the record of weeks at the top of the ATP rankings.
Roger was at 310 weeks and on 8 March Nole overtook. In those days Novak wanted to celebrate together with his family and his people with a pleasant party in his Belgrade. We have also to recall that Nole won a total of 18 Slam titles.
