There are allegations that had Lewis been driving for some other Constructor’s, he would not have been this successful. Mercedes’ sheer top-notch engineering and strategy gives Hamilton the much needed impetus to defeat everyone in the track.
Talking on this context, the 49-year-old boss conveyed, “There will always be people who argue like that. The stronger you get, the more envy and negativity you are going to encounter. But it doesn’t matter what others say. What matters is what Lewis thinks and what we think. We don’t allow ourselves to be distracted by such background noise.”
Hamilton, who won seven Formula One world titles so far in his career, has won six of them with Mercedes. The 36-year-old has joined the Silver Arrows in the year 2013 and has stayed with the team ever since. Hamilton’s driver’s Championship gave Mercedes their much needed boost and helped them win back to back seven Constructor’s Championship title as well.
100 POLES! I can’t even begin to describe how this feels. I can’t thank the team and everyone back at the factory enough for everything they’ve done to help us secure this incredible milestone. I feel so humbled and very grateful. This feels like my first win all over again 🙌🏾💯 pic.twitter.com/KkCgShdhq2

As it stands, the former McLaren driver leads the driver’s standings with 94 points, 14 points ahead of his closest rival Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. The reigning Champion recently managed to pick up his 100th pole and 98th win in the recently concluded Spanish Grand Prix.
Being the title contender this year too, it’ll be interesting to see if the British international can defend his Championship title.
