Jacques Villeneuve makes a dig at Lewis Hamilton’s attitude

Lewis Hamilton had fallen asleep in the early part of 2017, as suggested by Jacques Villeneuve and woke up just at the right time when Vettel was about to clinch the title. The Canadian hailed Lewis Hamilton as one of the best drivers and said that he is always with the best team and bosses the best car. Hamilton was beaten by former arch-rival Nico Rosberg, but the latter’s retirement had let Lewis take the foot of the paddle a little. The arrival of Bottas suggested that he may have it easy, but Vettel who has been sensational, and with Ferrari breathing down his neck, Lewis realised how real the competition was.

Villeneuve has a solitary title to his name but also holds the distinction of beating Schumacher in his prime. He believes that external rivalry enhances healthy competition, and 2017 could be marked as an affirmative season.

Verstappen supported the statement and said that it felt like a Sunday drive.
