After Mercedes secured the 2020 Constructor’s title at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton said the team is already focusing on “what’s needed to raise the bar”.

Even though Mercedes broke the record for most consecutive Constructors’ Championship titles, becoming one of the most successful F1 teams in history, the team does not plan to rest on its laurels.

“I’m just feeling incredibly proud of this team and you know, to live in a moment where we see a team so successful and to be a part of it is quite phenomenal,” said Hamilton at the post race press conference.

“Something that is the real honour of my life, working for this team and for all these people back at the two factories, Brixworth and Brackley.

“You know they really are the unsung heroes that are not on TV every weekend. They’re the guys that are working flat out every day during the weeks, crazy hours, to build and to innovate, to raise the bar, so that we can come here and do what we have done today and this year.

“I really don’t take it for granted that we have had this success. People could say ‘oh, you must be used to it’, and obviously maybe the fans are used to it, but from working inside the sport, you never get used to it.

“From tomorrow we’ll be focused on what’s next. We’ll be focusing on how we can be better. On Wednesday we’ll be having a big team meeting, trying to understand what could have been done better.

“We’ll have an analysis of what the next car looks like and what’s needed to raise the bar with the engine, with the driveability, with the ride, with tyre usage, all these different things.

“That’s because at the core of this team is some real heart and so a big thank you to everyone,” concluded the Briton.
