Hamilton can pass Schumacher's record and Ferrari revival is "what Formula One needs", says Ecclestone

SHOWS: LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (APRIL 10, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

QUESTION ON WHETHER LEWIS HAMILTON WILL BEAT MICHAEL SCHUMACHER'S RECORD OF SEVEN WORLD TITLES 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER FORMULA ONE SUPREMO BERNIE ECCLESTONE SAYING: "He needs to win another couple of championships.

Well if he keeps driving, there's no reason why he shouldn't." 3.

QUESTION ON FERRARI'S CHANCES, ECCLESTONE REMINDED HE SAID VETTEL WOULD WIN BEFORE THE SEASON STARTED 4.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER FORMULA ONE SUPREMO BERNIE ECCLESTONE SAYING: "I thought he was going to win easy." 5.

INTERVIEWER ASKING IF HE STILL THINKS THAT 6.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER FORMULA ONE SUPREMO BERNIE ECCLESTONE SAYING: "I think he's going to win.

But not easy." 7.

QUESTION ON WHETHER CHARLES LECLERC POSES A SIGNIFICANT THREAT TO VETTEL 8.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER FORMULA ONE SUPREMO BERNIE ECCLESTONE SAYING: "The car is good and I think at the moment Charles is on a high.

First time in the car, did very well, so he's going to be trying to chase that and make sure he finishes in front of Seb." 9.

INTERVIEWER SAYING THAT IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE WE HAD A FERRARI CHAMPION 10.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER FORMULA ONE SUPREMO BERNIE ECCLESTONE SAYING: "Exactly right, exactly right, that's what Formula One needs." 11.

QUESTION ON WHETHER IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR THE SPORT 12.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER FORMULA ONE SUPREMO BERNIE ECCLESTONE SAYING: "That would be a super thing for Formula One, and a good thing for Mercedes as well.

I think Mercedes would get much more credit if they are winning the last race of the year for the championship rather than winning things very easily." STORY: Bernie Ecclestone said that he could see five-times champion Lewis Hamilton matching Michael Schumacher's record of seven championships and 91 wins but said his money was still on Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel to triumph this year.

"I thought he was going to win easy," he said of a prediction that has looked shaky since team mate Charles Leclerc outshone the German in Bahrain.

"I (still) think he's going to win.

But not easy." The ex-Formula One chief added that a Ferrari revival this season would be "a super thing for Formula One".
