Mark Webber compares Roger Federer to Lewis Hamilton

During 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 rider 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 take a defeat like this, there are many thoughts that cross your mind. I remember hearing Roger Federer repeat several times that an athlete must always be ready to retire. We will see what happens next year." The performance of the Abu Dhabi GP has generated countless controversies, also due to a race direction that is not always consistent in his decisions.

Formula 1 is preparing for a real revolution in 2022, with the introduction of new rules to try to ensure greater balance. "Despite the regulatory change, I believe that the favorites will still be Mercedes and Red Bull.

Hamilton will do everything possible to be champion next year," commented Webber. Returning to 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 in the past two seasons.

Advancing age and injuries have significantly reduced his appearances on the pitch, so much so that numerous experts have 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 played just 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 from Basel will resume racing at the beginning of 2022, while to see him again on tour we will have to wait until the summer. His presence at Wimbledon is in strong doubt, as Roger himself admitted a few weeks ago.
