Former Benetton and Renault team boss Flavio Briatore says five of six drivers could have won the 2019 championship had they driven a Mercedes.

Briatore, who managed the teams that provided Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso with the equipment needed to win their first two world championships, says this fact doesn’t diminish Lewis Hamilton’s accomplishment.

“Mercedes is an invincible battleship,” said the Italian.

“At least five or six drivers, including Alonso, would have won the title with their 2019 car.

“But I take no credit from Hamilton, because you still have to beat the teammate at your side.”
