A wheel to wheel race between Ayrton Senna and Lewis Hamilton would be "exciting".

A wheel to wheel race between Ayrton Senna and Lewis Hamilton would be "exciting".

That is the view of Felipe Massa, who in 2008 almost beat Hamilton to his first title.

"It would be exciting to see, no question," the Brazilian told Salzburger Nachrichten newspaper.

"But we will never know who would be faster. In his time, Senna was almost unbeatable, especially in qualifying.

"In terms of speed, it's difficult to find another like him," Massa said.

Massa's comments come after Senna's most famous teammate, Gerhard Berger, said Hamilton is on the same level.

"I've always said 'I do not see anyone near Ayrton'," Berger said.

"But Lewis is the first driver that I see on the same level as Ayrton."
