This Mercedes F1 car should give Lewis Hamilton an eighth world title: the W12

The Mercedes F1 team has presented its new F1 car to the general public. Just like last year, the new F1 car is characterized by a black livery, in sign of the fight against racism and for more diversity. The AMG logo is noticeably more present, to emphasize the more intense collaboration between Mercedes and AMG.

The Mercedes W12 should help Lewis Hamilton to his eighth world title in Formula 1, which would be an absolute record. Hamilton currently shares the record with Michael Schumacher, both of whom have seven world titles to their name.

Since the introduction of the V6 hybrid engines in Formula 1 in 2014, Mercedes has always been crowned world champion among the teams. Seven world titles in a row, an absolute record, or what did you think?

It was also always a Mercedes driver who crowned himself world champion. Six times it was Lewis Hamilton, one time Nico Rosberg. In 2016 it was also the signal for the German to say goodbye to Formula 1 at a peak.

For Valtteri Bottas it meant a dream transfer from Williams to a top team. The Finn secretly hoped to be able to fight for the world title himself, but Bottas failed to really threaten Hamilton in the battle for the title during four seasons at Mercedes.

Mercedes already extended Bottas’ contract in the middle of last season, it was surprisingly enough to wait until the beginning of February for Hamilton’s contract extension. Hamilton also only got a new one-season contract, heralding an F1 farewell after earning an eighth world title?
