BBC: Hamilton 'feels Senna connection'"
Lewis Hamilton believes he is similar to Ayrton Senna and has revealed that he has based his approach to his career on the Brazilian three-time champion.
Hamilton, who can win the title at Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix, says he has admired Senna since childhood.
"I've always felt I had a connection with him, that we're somehow similar," he told Motor Sport magazine.
"I do crazy things that others wouldn't do and I feel like I have an edge, too. I feel I share something with him."
Hubris, sometimes spelled hybris (ancient Greek ὕβρις), is a term used in modern English to indicate overweening pride, self-confidence, superciliousness, or arrogance, often resulting in fatal retribution. In ancient Greece, hubris referred to actions which, intentionally or not, shamed and humiliated the victim, and frequently the perpetrator as well. It was most evident in the public and private actions of the powerful and rich. The word was also used to describe actions of those who challenged the gods or their laws, especially in Greek tragedy, resulting in the protagonist's downfall.
