Formula 1 2019 Eddie Jordan grants Lewis more mrito
Jordan, former director of the homonymous team in the 90s and early 2000s, and who made the 'Kaiser' debut in F1 in 1991, exposes his point of view: "Everyone has their point of view about this, but I think he has already surpassed Schumacher. Michael started with me so I am very fond of him, but there is a situation that people cannot fully understand. In that little management to pilots like Barrichello, Irvine, Fisichella and Alesi, and every time we signed a contract with Schumacher or Ferrari, there were always conditions that what we saw in Austin (The fight between Hamilton and Bottas for the victory, which in the end took the Finlands) they wouldn't have allowed Michael".
Jordan adds: "Lewis, if he had the same clauses in his contract, he would have been able to move on to Bottas to win the race. You can't have that in a competition sport. One part of the team dictates what the other does. For m , that's a fault of Michael".
And he concludes: "Michael has seven World Cups, but … how many would he have achieved if he hadn't had the influence and support of the other people on the team? And I'm not just talking about the team members, I'm talking about the drivers. Lewis plays in a different league, in my opinion. He has done everything on his own. What he has achieved has filled his family and his people with pride. "
