Toto Wolff, the Mercedes AMG F1 team boss opened up about the excuses that goes in and out about Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes. The Austrian boss thinks the ‘background noise’ can’t distract the Briton and Mercedes’ partnership.

It is often said that the Formula to success for Lewis Hamilton is his car. Mercedes produces best engines and cars and hence allows Lewis to perform way better than anyone else.

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.

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.
