After the checkered flag of Turkish Grand Prix, when Hamilton reached at the pitlane and parked his car, Vettel went immediately to him to congratulate him for the conquest of his seventh title in Formula 1.
“I told him it’s very special for us because we can witness history being made today,” Vettel told to Motorsport.com.
“I think he is greatest of our era for sure.
“I think it’s always difficult to compare… how can you possibly compare [Juan Manuel] Fangio, or Stirling Moss to our generation?
“Maybe we would be useless, because we would all be shitting ourselves in those cars. “Maybe they would be useless in our cars because they’re way too fast.
“But it doesn’t matter.
“I think every era has its driver or its drivers and Lewis is certainly the greatest of our era”.
