With Lewis’ contract for 2021 and beyod yet to be agreed upon, Ratcliffe was asked about the Briton’s future with the team.
“I’m very clear in my mind that Lewis is either the greatest, or one of the two or three greatest ever racing drivers,“ said Sir Ratcliffe.
“There’s absolutely no question of that. He’s just got immense talent.

“And he’s a very likeable chap because I’ve got to know him a little bit, but at the end of the day, these decisions, for me, predominantly sit with Toto. Toto has to run that team.
“The one thing I would say about Lewis is that there has been no diminution of his skills. He clearly is at the top of his game.
“The fact he’s 35, there’s absolutely no sign of any change,” concluded the Briton.
