The former Formula 1 team boss has tipped Lewis Hamilton to emerge victorious from Sunday’s F1 Final clash between the Mercedes World Champion and his Red Bull rival, Max Verstappen. Mr Jordan argued that Hamilton hold the momentum going to the showdown in Abu-Dhabi with the Briton’s performance in the Brazil Grand Prix showcasing him as “the best driver that has ever been.”

Mr Jordan told BBC Breakfast: “Max won here last year, but the impetus is absolutely with Louis.

“I think what Lewis did more than anything by winning, and the way he won in Brazil has embraced a huge amount of world audience to his stable.

“And that was the most sensational race that people have seen a current, in the modern era anyway, of Grand Prix drivers of what they’re able to do with a car and how they do it.

“So beyond any doubt, I don’t think it’s a test between the Schumacher seven titles or Louis’s 10 top seven titles, Louis has already won much more races and then Schumacher did so for me, he is the best driver that has ever been.”
