Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff believes that Lewis Hamilton has a wide open chance of winning many more World Cups after the British won the fabricate of the new, already sixth, title last Sunday at the US Grand Prix.
Although Hamilton did not win the race, he was overtaken by teammate Valtteri Bottas, but with second place he secured a double Mercedes victory and scored enough points to secure a joint victory in the season 2019.
Now Lewis is just one more behind the world record of seven championships he has won 2004 by the legendary Michael Schumacher. Wolff believes his driver can break the German record without much strain and become the best driver in Formula One history.
After the US race, he pointed out that Hamilton with the right car could be invincible:
“I think he's still very motivated. He wants to win every race. As long as it is, pleasure can go a long way. We have to give him a good car and I think he can achieve anything. “
Sunday was really perfect for Mercedes, as they won the best seats in the race. Wolff thinks the story couldn't have gone any better:
»I'm very proud. Very proud of everyone who participated in the factory. There is a lot of work behind the scenes. If it ends up with one driver winning and the other winning the championship, the story couldn't have been better. It was tense, but it was the last race to win the championship, so it needed to be flexible enough. He felt he could do a little more. “
Hamilton and his team-mate Bottas fought hard to win, especially in the last laps of the race. Wolff says they've already talked about it and will continue to do so throughout the year 2020:
»We discussed it. We have already learned our lessons in Singapore. Today you could see how tight it was between one or two stops. We decided we wanted to let them race, and this is something we will continue to do next year. “
