Mercedes is yet again flying away with the championship and their W11 showed wonders over the track, with the car certainly overtaking the capability of its 2019 build- W10.
Lewis Hamilton in his recent interview with the Skysports has further asserted this claim and went onto say that this is the best car Mercedes ever had and probably the best in the sport so far.
Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes’ 2020 car – the W11 is the best F1 car the manufacturer ever built, but also “probably” the best car Formula 1 will ever have.
It’s hard to argue that the Mercedes-AMG F1 W11 EQ Performance is a winning machine. Up to this point the car dominated the 2020 season, winning all but two races. More specifically it took all 13 pole positions and 11 race wins.
Lewis Hamilton believes the success is a reflection of the quality of people working in the team.
“What we have done is no coincidence,” the Briton told Sky Sports F1.
“Valtteri [Bottas] and I are just a part of this incredible chain of people who are collectively working and all rowing in the same direction.
“People will probably want to understand how we do it and I think it’s just continuing to set ridiculously high goals every year.
“When it comes to the car, I remember we sat down in 2013 and I would always sit and speak to the guys on aero and talk about where our target is.
“There would be a dot and I’d say ‘well move that even higher’. And they were like, ‘yeah you’re right, let’s move it higher’.
“And they just continued to do that year on year on year and raise that target that it’s so far out of reach, but if we work towards getting there maybe we’ll get there. That’s what we’ve done every year.”
The six-time champion believes Mercedes’ 2020 car is the best Formula 1 will ever have.
“The whole car collectively, for sure, is the best car that we’ve built. I think probably it will be the best car that we’ll ever have, I think, probably in the sport.”
