The extremely competitive nature of the season will squeeze out the most deserving driver at the end of the championship, according to Damon Hill.
With six races to go, the top six competitors in the standings, of which five are world champions, believe that they have a chance of winning the title, making it difficult to predict who will emerge at the top at the end.
"There are so many guys who are still in the frame. If you look at the drivers who are still in contention, they definitely are the most experienced, best drivers in Formula 1," Hill, a champion in 1996, told F1Pulse.com exclusively.
"So it shows you that Formula 1 is the ultimate test for the drivers. And the guy who wins this season is truly unquestionably a worthy world champion," the Briton added.
But considering the close nature of the championship this year, will the driver who is crowned king at the end of the season be the most worthy champion in the history of F1?
"I wish my history of what Formula 1 is as comprehensive as it needs to be to answer that question but in my experience this is a very close championship," replied the 52-year-old.
