Who will replace Hamilton on the British F1 throne?

When the seven-time champion chooses to hang up his helmet, British fans will be spoiled for choice cheering on a home hero. George Russell, Lando Norris and Alex Albon all get on well, having progressed through the ranks together. But who will be the next leading hope in the post-Hamilton era, whenever that is?

“He’s got a very long career ahead of him, so absolutely Max Verstappen can eclipse my records,” said Lewis Hamilton at the recent Canadian Grand Prix. “Ultimately, records are there to be broken. And he’s got an amazing team. 

“But as I’ve said, we’ve got to work harder to try and continue to extend [those records]. I hope we get to have, at least within the last period of time in my career, some more close racing.”
