It's been said before, but this video further confirms Lewis has a lot of similar elements to him that Senna also possessed, and even though Hamilton does care for environment and stuff like that, i think one of the biggest personality differences is that Senna had a much more 'religeous' and 'humanitarian' core to his personality.
Apart from the fact they're 2 different individuals, offcourse.
I also feel Hamilton is more of a 'Rock Star' type of person when Senna aired more of a 'humble' personality.
But that said, Hamilton to me ventilates a lot on how Senna would have 'fared' had it not been for his tragic accident,
and being in a much safer sport, which undoubtedly shapes a person very profoundly.
I'm without doubt that if Hamilton would have been a key figure in saving a fellow driver's life (Erik Comas), and driving clear deathtraps, he would be different too, so it's really hard to compare people since their generations and circumstances differ so much.
But Hamilton's clear and profound love for the sport and his intentions to be involved to change it for the better and making it also perhaps a fairer sport is very much what Senna actively did already during his f1 racing career.
Would Senna have become a F1 team principal (perhaps even his own team) or a figure like Jean Todt in the FIA now, or perhaps involved in like Liberty Media? I highly doubt that though, i think he would have become an (important) political figure in Brazilian politics, perhaps even as far as becoming president.
The Brazilian people absolutely adored Senna.
Which surprises me if you look at the British people in general ignoring Hamilton, as it atleast seems to me.
I don't get the general idea that Hamilton is so important to the British people like either Senna was to Brazil, Schumacher to Germany, Verstappen to the Netherlands, perhaps even Alonso to the Spanierds.
I'm surprised particularly because it's not like British people aren't 'like that', look at how they look at football,
and their clear love for motorsport. Or perhaps i have simply been at the wrong moments at the wrong places,
but i can't remember Hamilton's success being so 'celebrated'?
