Murray Walker: ‘Lewis can win 8 world titles’

Legendary Grand Prix commentator Murray Walker has said that Lewis Hamilton can win eight world titles by the time his F1 career ends – but also said that five other drivers are capable of winning the drivers’ championship.

Walker, talking to Telegraph TV, thinks that the key to Hamilton’s chances of overtaking Michael Schumacher’s haul of seven world championship victories is "staying with a good team and not drowning in money".

He added: "I think that there are six drivers capable of winning the world title at the moment, two each from McLaren and Ferrari, and I think that Robert Kubica and Sebastian Vettel are also in with a good chance."

During a revealing interview the retired commentator also offered the view that the Singapore Grand Prix would be even better if it took place during the day and said it was a shame that Silverstone won’t be hosting the British Grand Prix.

Meanwhile, three-times world champion Sir Jackie Stewart has just been awarded an honorary degree by St Andrews University for his feats in motor sport.

  1. Do you want to put money on that one Murray? My estimate is 3 championships at the most before the lad settles down to cruising with the other dozen @cruisers in F!
