Lewis Hamilton

Mercedes completed 9 years with Lewis Hamilton yesterday. On 24th January 2013, Lewis Hamilton joined Mercedes in place of Michael Schumacher.

Schumacher a seven-time Drivers’ World Champion retired from F1 after him being unsuccessful to add one more title to his name. Hamilton went on to equal Schumacher’s 7 time Champion record. In his 9 years of stint with the Silver Arrows, Hamilton went on to win 6 Drivers’ World Championship titles and 8 Constructors’ Championship titles. The Hybrid era was solely dominated by the Briton.

Lewis even broke the 91 pole positions record of Schumacher. A record that once was considered unbreakable. Hamilton now holds the record of most pole positions which is 103.

So Close, Yet so Far

Lewis last year came very close to creating history and forever being the greatest of all but he was left heartbroken at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Hamilton and Max Verstappen were up for a decider at the Prix as they both were at the same points. Hamilton who started from pole position maintained his position through the race but last moment safety car completely changed the course of the race. Verstappen overtook Hamilton at the last lap and won his maiden title.

Hamilton after the controversial season finale has been silent. Some reports even suggest he is contemplating his retirement from the sport.

The key question now is Will he be back to be the greatest of all time? Will the Briton lift his 8th Drivers’ Champion title?

For now, Hamilton’s presence in the 2022 season is uncertain but we all sure do hope for his return.
