Lewis Hamilton ‘super-excited’ about two F1 drivers as next generation takes shape

“When you’re in your early 20s, you don’t know what you can and can’t say or how best to navigate [things]. All you have is just raw strength, talent and ability. And I’m super-excited to start to see Lando [Norris] and Charles [Leclerc], these guys really excel and move forward. There’s some really good guys here.”

Ferrari fans hoped that Leclerc, 24, would take the fight to Max Verstappen this season and prevent the Red Bull star from winning a second consecutive title. While the Prancing Horse showed fantastic pace in the opening weeks of the season, Verstappen has been a model of consistency ever since and leads the Championship by 116 points.
