F1 LIVE: Ecclestone takes new Hamilton swipe, Mercedes upgrade, button fooled by Norris | F1 | sports

Former Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone believes Lewis Hamilton should have just six world titles, rather than the seven that would put him on the same level as Michael Schumacher.

Ecclestone cites the “crash” of 2008, where Hamilton won his first drivers’ championship at the expense of Felipe Massa in controversial circumstances.

“I still feel sorry for Massa today,” said Ecclestone, on the GPBlog. “He won the final at his home race in Sao Paulo and did everything right. He was robbed of the title he deserved while Hamilton had all the best in the world and won his first championship.

“Today I would have ironed it out differently. That is why, for me, Michael Schumacher is still the only record holder. Even if the statistics say otherwise.”
