‘I always had a target on my back,’ Lewis Hamilton says as he is preparing to defend the title

Lewis Hamilton will do what many thought impossible this season when he shoots the record of seven world titles by Michael Schumacher. But the defending champion said he up for the challenge and he doesn’t feel the pressure to defeat the guy.

The Mercedes driver crowned in five of the last six seasons as the dominant force the Silver Arrows. But this may his toughest season yet in the turbo-hybrid era. With teams expected to converge in the midst of stable rules. Not that Hamilton’s preoccupation with the increasing threat.

As he said:

Since the day I won my first championship when I 10 years old a target on my back so that’s nothing new to me.

I’ve always been the only black driver there, I’ve always been at the front of the championships in general. So it’s no different from any of the other 27 years of driving – so I’m pretty comfortable here.

Hamilton entered F1 as a young and red-hot 22-year-old in 2007. Now-13 years later-stands on the brink of breaking Michael Schumacher’s record of seven titles and exceeding his 91-race winning count.

Among those standing in his way are two rising stars generating as much uproar as a young Hamilton did-Charles Leclerc of Ferrari and Max Verstappen of Red Bull. But the idea of hitting the next generation’s potential just spurs the 35-year-old forward, he said.

It’s also a good thing when people challenge you to try to beat you because you want everyone to carry their ‘ A-Game’. So if we’re able to pull it off and finish ahead, it’s even easier.

With only a week to go before the Australian Grand Prix. There’s already a healthy amount of battle talk.

But Hamilton has a job to do:

Since 2014 he’s taken pole in every race at Albert Park but won only once in that period.
