Since the season concluded with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, it has been one endless chain of events for Sir Lewis Hamilton. From the prizes to the records and his historic knighthood, the Briton has barely had time to breathe. Well, the celebrations continue as the Mercedes champ turns 36 today and AMG Twitter wished him in a witty manner, as usual.
Sir Lewis has been extraordinary this season. He broke Michael Schumacher’s mammoth record of 91 race wins and equaled his record of 7 championships. However, that was not all for his achievements this year. He bagged another by winning BBC’s Sports Person of the Year.
Those would just be his personal achievements. Collectively, he and Bottas helped Mercedes reach their 7 Constructor’s championship, establishing a record of winning cycles. Well, for the boy who started off as just another kid on the block, he sure has achieved a lot. But he is not done yet.
Although he is just a few years away from the mid-life mark in his years, Sir Hamilton appears absolutely fit. He maintains a very strict and disciplined lifestyle, and that is surely benefitting him in his sport. With sheer optimism for the future, the lad from Stevenage looks to be setting his records higher than anyone.
On the auspicious occasion of his birthday, Mercedes Twitter did not forget to wish him a healthy journey ahead. However, what it may have forgotten was that there is a title ahead of his name now. Their attempt to apologize for their mistake is hilarious.
Sir Lewis Hamilton aims for 8th title
Fans grow impatient over the contract talks between Mercedes and Sir Lewis. Although the thought of him staying back is quite clear, his tenure is still vague and uncertain. The fans would want to know for how long would their hero stay on the track, thus it is so important for them to know about the details of the deed.
Sir Lewis Hamilton would aim for an 8th title next season. Although there has been a considerable buzz over the new regulations, if we are realistic, it is impossible to turn the tide against Mercedes in just a single season.
Mercedes understands that FIA has employed the new regulations to curb down their dominance. However, the Germans have always fancied a good challenge and it is one of the most alluring challenges in the past decade for them. Their technical director seems thrilled to take on the task and he is positive that they will ace it.
