Lewis Hamilton will be unbeatable if he continues to drive like he did in the German Grand Prix, triple world champion Niki Lauda says.

Lauda, who won his third and final title with McLaren in 1984, says Hamilton was his favourite last year but screwed up in the last two races.

The former Ferrari and McLaren Formula One driver says McLaren's new hero has got the message now and performed in a difficult race at Silverstone and again in a difficult race in Germany.

Lauda says the young Brit is on the right track and if he continues like this he is unbeatable.
