Lauda praises 'unbeatable' Hamilton
12 May 2014 – Three-time Formula 1 World Champion and Mercedes Chairman Niki Lauda has described Lewis Hamilton as "unbeatable" after the Briton notched up his fourth successive victory at the Spanish Grand Prix.
Despite late pressure from team-mate Nico Rosberg, pole-sitter Hamilton held on to take the chequered flag first and move into the lead of the championship, prompting the highest level of praise from Lauda.
"Lewis is unbeatable – it's very simple to say," explained Lauda following the 66-lap encounter. "He's getting better and better every race, he makes no mistakes whatsoever and nobody can beat him at the moment.
"Nico tried every trick to get him. He did a good job, but couldn't pass him. Lewis is outstanding at the moment."
Three points separate Hamilton and Rosberg as the season moves on to its sixth round in Monte-Carlo.
