(cafetheology.org) – Mercedes' team supervisory board Niki Lauda has likened his scoundrel Lewis Hamilton with Formula 1 playboy James Hunt. As the Austrian 'RTL' says, the World Cup leader of the seventies icon sneaks in some respects and distinguishes himself strongly from himself: "There are many drivers, some work day and night.You are the James Hunt for me, Lauda calls Hamilton to Hamilton. He has been one of these workers himself. It would have had its price. "Hunt had more women than I did, I had less spa than he and you're the same," Lauda told Hamilton. The Briton repeats his reminder to stamp it as a partymaster and wants to acknowledge his commitment to the development of a Formula One car: "It's not that I'm not working, I'm in constant contact with the engineers," says Hamilton "I have to live, I have to meet with friends and find pleasure in other things, and when I come to the race with a free head, I am in my personal best form and fastest," explains Hamilton and is in the best form of his entire Formula One career: "I feel more 'allrounded' than before." Nevertheless, the three-time world champion seems to be exploring the options for a career after the career and becoming a legacy away from the cockpit "I'm trying to try everything out to see if it's something I like and whether it's something I'm good at," he says. "I love music, I like to go to concerts, to meet different artists, to get to know creative people, my aim is that if I end up, I will not simply disappear completely."
