The newly crowned world champion Hamilton explains in an interview with “Motorsport.com”: “For young drivers who are new to Formula 1, it is difficult to understand what Michael Schumacher did or what I am doing in this team,” said the 35-year-old Yearlings. “You only see: We have a good car, Michael had a good car. Unfortunately, people don’t see what is happening in the background here.”
Hamilton describes the ingredients for success as follows: “You have to be in control. You have a strong group of intelligent, passionate people around you. And of course there is also a team boss who is at the main wheel. But when it comes to developing how to make the car better, that’s my job. ”
