Who’s the greatest F1 driver ever? A question that’s been around forever. Some folks might say it’s Juan Manuel Fangio, the early F1 dominator. Others might argue for Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, or Michael Schumacher.

Recently, names like Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen have been thrown into the mix. And guess what? Mercedes’ F1 team has chimed in too. Their pick? Lewis Hamilton.

Now, you might say, “Hey, isn’t Mercedes a bit biased?” After all, Hamilton was pretty much invincible with the German team for years. The guy’s got seven world titles under his belt, same as Schumacher, and 103 Grand Prix victories. Not too shabby, right?

And get this: Sir Lewis hasn’t won a title in two years. But Mercedes still thinks he’s the GOAT. They even asked their social media followers to describe Hamilton in one emoji. Their choice? A goat emoji. They added, “Of course”.
