‘New’ Hamil­ton

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

For­mula 1 has wit­nessed a ‘new’ Lewis Hamil­ton in re­cent weeks, says his Mercedes boss Toto Wolff. In the past, Hamil­ton has strug­gled to keep up his best form af­ter win­ning world ti­tles, and it was only this year that he ended a record of never hav­ing won a race in a sea­son he had clinched a crown. “He has ac­tu­ally driven stronger af­ter win­ning the driv­ers’ ti­tle,” ex­plained Wolff. “When you look at his face, there was al­most more re­lief and hap­pi­ness about seal­ing the con­struc­tors’ ti­tle than the first one [driv­ers’ ti­tle]. And that is why he just didn’t take the foot off the throt­tle un­til the very end. That is some­how a new Lewis.”
