London, Apr. 06: Former Formula One champion Sir Jackie Stewart has warned Mercedes racer Lewis Hamilton that his teammate Nico Rosberg may become the next ‘Alain Prost’, ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix.
The Formula One legend said that everything about Rosberg, who is methodical while racing, reminds him of the four-time world champion Prost, British icon Jim Clark and even Stewart himself.
Stewart said that Rosberg might could put a dent in Hamilton’s titles hope as he has all the potential of winning more Grand Prix races and championships and the methodical manner in which Rosberg races points to that, the Mirror reports.
Stewart also said that although Hamilton did convincingly win the Australian Grand Prix with the enormous skill and enormous talent he has, it only remains to be seen if he can deliver repeatability on that.
Rosberg snatched the pole coolly in the final practice at Bahrain ahead of Sunday’s Grand Prix to deny Hamilton his pole hat trick, the report added. (ANI)
