The latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast – available free to subscribe to – takes a deep dive into Lewis Hamilton’s achievements and tackles some of the regular criticism of the seven-times world champion.

Despite being statistically the most successful grand prix driver of all time, there are still regular questions over his achievements given the dominance of the V6 turbo hybrid era by Mercedes and the supposed lack of opposition during this period.

Scott Mitchell, Mark Hughes and Edd Straw tackle the thorny question of car versus driver, and evaluates how central Hamilton has been to success of Mercedes.

The evolving challenge of being a grand prix driver today compared to the less safety-conscious days of the past is also weighed up, as is how his off-track campaigning contributes to his legacy.
