Lewis Hamilton is well on the road to becoming the greatest formula driver of all time according to former two time world champion Mika Hakkinen.
Hakkinen believes that the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes driver can build upon winning the drivers' championship in only his second season in the sport and push on to further greatness.
The Finn told the Times newspaper: "I just do not see why he cannot become the best there is. He is only in his second year in formula one and that is a very high-pressure environment. But he deals with it. He has youth and talent on his side. He can be the greatest."
Hakkinen added that Hamilton will always make a few mistakes because of the speed at which he drives, but he has a lot going for him to cut these to a minimum.
"He is a young guy, he is with a great team and he has shown great commitment to the team for a long period. He has a fantastic fitness programme so that he will have the energy to drive for years to maximise his performance for a long time to come," the former Vodafone McLaren Mercedes driver concluded.
Hakkinen won back-to-back world championships in 1998 and 1999.
