Prost: I cannot see anybody beating him

According to Alain Prost, Lewis Hamilton will be world champion again this season. The four-time world champion can't see anyone else beating him anytime soon. And he compares Hamilton's situation with Michael Schumacher's situation at the beginning of this century.

Hamilton champion again?

"The way Lewis is driving, the confidence he has in his Mercedes team, and the fact that the regulations are going to change very little in 2021, give him a very good chance to be world champion this year and next. I cannot see anybody beating him", says Prost to Metro.

"It is unbelievable what Lewis has done. But you can only do that if you have a long domination and a long-term commitment with a team", continues Prost. Hamilton has only been beaten once in his time at Mercedes. In 2016, Nico Rosberg won the title, but Hamilton did have a mathematical chance of winning on the final day of the season. 

Comparison with Schumacher

According to Prost, the dominance of Hamilton corresponds to the dominance of Michael Schumacher with Ferrari. "You can compare it because it's basically the same story. You have a perfect organisation with key people in the team and a number-one and a number-two driver. Psychologically you have a very stable situation which puts you in a very strong position."
