Lewis Hamilton has long been in a friendly relationship with Niki Lauda, but it has not always been this way. A few years ago, he did not like the Austrian legend that criticized him.
Niki Lauda was one of the main co-creators of the then world champion, Lewis Hamilton, who was to sign a contract at the end of 2012 for the then Mercedes booth. Three-time Austrian champion for a long time convinced the British pilot and eventually turned out to be a German factory maneuver, which eventually turned out to be a return to the McLaren race.
But Lauda did not have a good opinion of Hamilton at first, but it was the most impressive after the Monaco Grand Prix in 2011, when the British started the race Felipe Massa and Pastor Maldonado. "What Hamilton has done goes beyond the limits, it's crazy, if the FIA does not punish him, the world will become unintelligible to me.
Hamilton and Lauda became good friends
"There is a point where we have to end this clown. It just does not lead to anyone else, otherwise it will end when she kills someone," said Niki Lauda in May 2011. Only a year later, a Mercedes consultant set up all his weapons to light a British ace. It finally succeeded, they shook hands, and their relationship quickly began to improve.
"From that moment our relationship was getting better and better. I love Nik & # 39; and I hope he will come back to us soon, although initially I did not feel good about it," said Lewis Hamilton, who underwent a lung transplant, but thankfully keeps in touch with Lauda, which is at a great pace, mainly via the Internet.
"I often send him films about a box, or technical meetings, completely up to date on what's going on here." It was great to hear his voice last week, he was pleased with the events, joked and liked him very much, "Lewis Hamilton added.
