Ecclestone Lashes Out At Hamilton Critics

With fellow drivers, ex Formula 1 drivers and the press all ganging up against Lewis Hamilton and his aggressive driving style, the owner of Formula 1 isn't. Bernie Ecclestone has came to Hamilton's defence comparing his driving style to Ayrton Senna which is the ultimate accolade in F1.

Speaking to The Independent Ecclestone says "People have been wrong to rubbish Lewis, What we want is people racing, and all the people who watch it want that."

"If you analyse what's been happening and how other drivers have been performing, Lewis shows up very well, and so do Sebastian [Vettel] and Jenson [Button]."

"So let him race. That's what people like him do. I was very, very good friends with [Ayrton] Senna, and if you look at what he did, he was a racer too, and people had to move over for him."

"Perhaps Lewis has made one or two questionable moves, but so have many of the others, and nobody bothers to look what's happening further down the field. It's always been like this".

"We saw a lot of people racing in Canada on Sunday, and Jenson did a super job. That's what the fans want to see."
