Hamilton joined the club in 2013, which marked the start of a legendary run that saw him win six out of seven championships and set a record-breaking 103 victories in his career.
Hamilton’s career is far from complete, and the legendary Michael Schumacher is the only driver to have won seven championships.
Max Verstappen won the 2021 championship in a thrilling climax after Red Bull Racing mounted a fierce fight in prior years. Red Bull won 29 out of the 34 races it competed in during the 2023 season. Last year’s Brazilian Grand Prix triumph by George Russell was Mercedes’ lone shining moment.
Lewis Hamilton, who is 38 years old and the second-oldest driver on the starting grid this season, doesn’t appear to be slowing down.
George Russell, a teammate of his, who joined junior program at Mercedes in 2017 is similarly optimistic about the future. Russell screamed, “We have come a long way in the last 18 months and are only getting stronger as a team.”
It is evident that Mercedes is devoted to retaking its position as the leading force in Formula 1 as we look ahead to the remainder of the 2023 season. Hamilton and Russell are leading the squad as they continue to strive for greatness, and fans across the world are eager to see where this legendary duo will lead them next.
