Hamilton says Vettel `on his way to being greatest` after fourth straight F1 title
London – Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton was full of praise for Sebastian Vettel as he cruised to victory in the Indian Grand Prix to secure his fourth title in a row.
According to the Mirror, Hamilton pointed out that it was an amazing achievement for such a young individual, adding that he is on his way to being the greatest F1 driver, if he is not already.
Vettel himself said that to be able to join the greats of the sport was something that was difficult to put into perspective.
He added that when he used to watch Michael Schumacher winning on TV, he was a god to him and now he was his friend.
The German also said that when he started in karts, he used to do practice and race, then go and play in the sand with toy cars, adding that he never dreamed it would lead to this.
