Or to be more precise the only MULTIPLE single engine World Champion.
By single engine I mean the driver has won all of his GP's using the same make of engine , including wins in years where he was not WC.
I think Hamilton is unique in that every F1 race he has won has been with a Mercedes engine. I am not taking anything from his remarkable ability and lots of World Champions only won in a single make of chassis e.g. Jim Clark.
However Clark used three makes of engine Coventry Climax, Ford and BRM. Similarly Jack Brabham used Climax and Repco.
I specified multiple champions because if you one win one World Championship it s quite likely all your GP wins will be with one make of engine e.g. Phil Hill.
Does only winning with one engine make Hamilton unique in the 70 years of the F1 World Championship?
