“It is not a car thing”- Lewis Hamilton wants more weekends like Istanbul to disprove his critics that his success cannot only be credited to the car.
Lewis Hamilton after a spectacular performance in Istanbul went onto clinch his 7th World Championship title in the most fashionable way. However, much of his success is attributed to his magnificent cars built by Mercedes according to his critics.
But the display in Istanbul once again proved that always it is not about the car, but the person sitting behind the steering, as the deficit between Valtteri Bottas and Hamilton after the race is the testimony of this fact.

Therefore, the Briton driver in his recent interview has asked for more weekends like Istanbul to disprove his credit, who often try to deny him the credit for his achievements.
“I want more of these weekends,” said Hamilton. “More tricky conditions like this. The more opportunities like this, the more I’m able to show what I’m able to do.”
“And today hopefully you can see… I think I deserve my respect. I think I have that with my peers, they will know how hard today is, particularly that it is not a car thing.”
“I couldn’t have done this without that amazing group of people behind me. But there is another great driver who is alongside me, who has the same car who obviously didn’t finish where I finished.”
Lewis Hamilton is among the greatest athletes
Hamilton doesn’t have to ask for such harsh race conditions to solidify his greatness, he is undoubtedly among the greatest athletes ever across the sporting fraternity.
The physical and mental fitness Formula 1 demands is not easy to maintain and to claim 7 titles is no easy feat, even if you have the best car in the history of the game.
