Chiedu Ebie, former lawyer and current CEO of Nigerian exploration and production company Millennium Oil & Gas Company Limited, is an avid fan of Formula One motor racing. Chiedu Ebie is a big supporter of Lewis Hamilton, a racer on the Mercedes AMG Petronas team and the 2008, 2014, and 2015 Formula One World Champion.
Though Hamilton has been relaxing lately during the Formula One season’s winter break, he has been anxiously awaiting the start of the new season. This year, the pre-season testing started later than usual, and lasted only eight days. Hamilton claims that he misses racing and competing lately, especially because of the shorter testing time.
In 2015, Hamilton won first place in the season-opening Grand Prix in Australia before going on the win the world championship, so he knows the importance of getting off to a good start. However, he realizes that even if he doesn’t win the opening race this year, he’ll be able to catch up with some hard work and practice.
Hamilton predicts that Ferrari’s team is going to be a big contender in the F1 races this year, and is excited to see how his competition does. If Hamilton wins his fourth world championship this year, he will become the most successful British F1 driver of all time. Still, Hamilton claims that his main goal is to emulate his hero, former driver Ayrton Senna.
