Lewis Hamilton has sights on a fourth F1 World Championship title


Toto Wolff, the executive director at Mercedes' Formula One team has claimed that driver, Lewis Hamilton is "building a legacy as one of Formula One's greatest drivers". 


32-year old Hamilton won a record-equalling fifth British Grand Prix at Silverstone last weekend to move to within touching distance of leader, Sebastian Vettel in the drivers' championship.  


This weekend the F1 season moves onto Hungary, to a track where Brit, Lewis Hamilton, has enjoyed incredible success over the years. Hamilton has won at the Hungaroring five teams, a sixth win will catapult him to the top of the drivers' championship and the Mercedes driver will have his sights set firmly on a third world title in four years, his fourth overall. 


Four titles will see Hamilton tied third on the all-time list with Alain Prost and Sebastian Vettel, with just Michael Schumacher (seven wins) and Juan Manuel Fangio (five wins) ahead of him. 


Further proving Wolff's 'legacy building' claims, if Hamilton can start on pole in Hungary, he will move tied first with Schumacher on the all-time list with 68 first-placed F1 starts. 


After a modest start to the season, Mercedes have won three of the last four races to take a commanding lead in this season's constructors' championship. Mercedes boss, Wolff was quick to heap praise on his drivers; Hamilton and Finnish driver, Valtteri Bottas. 


Mr Wolff said, "Our drivers have been one of our biggest strengths so far. Lewis has delivered some consummate performances this year in China, Canada and Silverstone in particular. The win in front of his home crowd [at Silverstone] was emotionally charged and I am sure he is carrying that energy with him right now." 


He continued, "As we see almost each weekend, he is equalling and matching new records in our sport's history - and building a legacy as one of the sport's greatest drivers. Budapest has always been a good circuit for him but, as he knows better than anybody else, the past is no guarantee of future performance. It's all about the right preparation, hard work and delivering on the day."
