Mark Webber compares Roger Federer to Lewis Hamilton


In an interview with Channel 4, former Formula 1 driver Mark Webber drew a parallel between Roger Federer and Lewis Hamilton. As everyone knows, the British driver was duped by Max Verstappen in the last GP of 2021. Webber quotes: “It’s not easy to get into Lewis Hamilton’s head right now.

When you suffer a defeat like this, many thoughts pass through your mind. I remember hearing Roger Federer say over and over again that an athlete should always be ready to retire. We’ll see what happens next year. “The performance of the Abu Dhabi GP has sparked countless controversies, also due to a race direction that is not always consistent in its decisions.

Formula 1 is preparing for a real revolution in 2022, with the introduction of new rules to try to ensure a better balance. “Despite the regulatory change, I think the favorites will remain Mercedes and Red Bull.

Hamilton will do everything possible to be champion next year, ”commented Webber. Back in tennis, King Roger had to say goodbye to the Top 10 for the first time since 2017.

Roger’s season and hopes for 2022

Roger Federer has encountered a lot of difficulties over the past two seasons.

Age and injuries significantly reduced his appearances on the pitch, so much so that many experts advised him to end his legendary career. The former world number 1 only played in the Australian Open in 2020, before undergoing two operations on his right knee.

It hasn’t gone much better this year, as the Swiss player has only played 13 official matches (with a record of nine wins and four losses). After being eliminated in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, the 20-time Grand Slam champion has announced that he will have to operate on his knee again following a relapse.

The 40-year-old Bâlois will resume racing in early 2022, while to see him on tour again, it will be necessary to wait for the summer. His presence at Wimbledon is strongly in doubt, as Roger himself admitted a few weeks ago.
