Hamilton won his seventh world title in Formula 1 last season, equaling the record set by Michael Schumacher. This year, the Mercedes leader will be looking for the 8th number. Just a month ago he extended his contract with Mercedes until the end of 2021. Part of this agreement is to create a charity that supports greater diversity and incorporates it into motorsport.
“I don’t need to look forward anymore,” Hamilton said. “I wanted to sign up for a year. Last year we talked a lot about equality and things like that. This year it’s about what happens. That’s my main goal. But here we are all at Mercedes.” Born to win. All the men and women in the factory are working very hard for it. It would be great to see the new car and be in the factory here again. “
Hamilton sees his Finnish teammate Valteri Bodas as his biggest rival on the track. “He’s so hard to beat.” Britain consider Red Bull to have a better duo than last year as Max Verstappen’s new teammate with Mexican Sergio Perez, when Alexander Alban formed the driving pairing with the Dutchman. “The Red Bull now have a strong duo. The breath of fresh air is blowing in the Ferrari. Sebastian Vettel brings Aston Martin experience and expertise. It will be another wonderful year.”
