The 2008 Formula One world champion feels that Heikki Kovalainen should have had a ride in 2013.
Feb.5 (GMM) Lewis Hamilton on Monday branded those who overlooked Heikki Kovalainen for a 2013 race seat "fools".
Caterham has swept out last year's driver lineup - Finn Kovalainen and Russian Vitaly Petrov - in favour of the well-sponsored Charles Pic and Giedo van der Garde.
When asked about the demise of his former McLaren teammate, Hamilton said on Monday: "When my flight landed and I was driving to Jerez, I thought about what a great pity it is that Heikki is not here.
"I think Heikki is a high quality driver, very experienced and deserves a place," the 2008 world champion added.
