Rubens Barrichello, 11 times Formula 1 race winner and former Ferrari teammate to Michael Schumacher says that Lewis Hamilton may a better all-around driver than Schumacher and Ayrton Senna.

“Hamilton has a talent that is possibly even greater than that of Ayrton and Schumacher,” Barrichello told ESPN Brasil.

“The only thing he lacked was maturity. He has progressed on that, and today you see the final product.”

When asked about how 6-time F1 world champion Hamilton has matured, Barrichello said, “When I listened to the radio in Brazil, I noticed that he is incredibly calm, passing on information, saying what he does and doesn’t need.

“The perfect driver would have Ayrton’s skill, Schumacher’s courage and Hamilton’s coordination, it would be something to see!”

In 2020, Lewis Hamilton needs to score 7 wins to match Michael Schumacher’s record of most race wins in Formula 1, Hamilton also can match Schumacher’s record of 7 world championship titles if he wins the 2020 championship.
