REPORTS: Lewis Hamilton Claims Mercedes Will Win More Titles In The Future

Sir Lewis Hamilton made Mercedes a powerhouse in Formula One. Without the great Briton, it was quite impossible for them to reach such heights. Before the former McLaren racer joined the team in 2013, it was not looking like winning any title. Albeit, Michael Schumacher made a famous return to the sport in 2010-2011. He drove the car of the German team. But the legendary German racer was not able to help Mercedes look like a championship-worthy team. Thanks to another legendary racer, Niki Lauda, who convinced the great British racer to join the Silver Arrows in 2013. Since 2014, Hamilton and the new team principal, Toto Wolff, successfully converted the team to a new powerhouse.

Lewis Hamilton dominated the whole turbo-hybrid era. From 2014 to 2021, he helped Mercedes win eight constructor championships. Moreover, Hamilton himself won six Driver’s World championships, adding to his maiden title with McLaren. However, the glory days of Hamilton and Mercedes had to come to an end someday. And it did. Since 2022, the German team managed to win only one race. On the other hand, Hamilton remained winless. As a result, the seven-time champion racer decided to part ways. He will race for Ferrari from 2025. However, Hamilton still believes Mercedes can win more titles in the future.
