British F1 superheroes Stirling Moss and Jackie Stewart tell PAUL FEARNLEY why Lewis Hamilton is now their equal
Stirling Moss was the young sensation, 'The underdog doing his utmost to win a GP in a British car'. Jackie Stewart was Jim Clark's 'Scottish speed twin. Robin to his Batman'. Ah, we Press love a hook, crave a new angle and pray for the next wonder kid.
Enter Lewis Carl Hamilton: the looks, the smile, the chat, the charm and - no emperor's clothes here, please - the skin colour. The only thing missing, as far as the scribblers were concerned, was an overly aggressive, mouthy dad living vicariously through his son's achievements.
