Asked how he could raise the bar, Hamilton said it depended on the team, “Going by our history together…I think there’s a lot more for us to do.
“I’m 35 years old, I still feel physically strong but of course you wonder when is it going to tip over, when are you going to start losing performance? But as shown by today, it’s not yet.”
Hamilton and Max Verstappen, the 23-year-old Red Bull driver who finished third and is seen as a future champion once he gets a car capable of beating the Mercedes, joked about the records afterwards.
“Lewis said he keeps pushing because he wants to set it (the bar) very high because I have to work hard to try and get there,” said Verstappen, who has nine wins to his credit so far.
“It’s amazing. It’s just an incredible achievement. 92 victories and I don’t think it stops there. I think it will go well over 100 so he’s pushing me to go until I’m 40 years old or something. It’s a good motivation.”
💬 “It’s going to take some time for it to sink in. I can’t find the words at the moment…”
