F1: Aldo Costa’s dominant F1 cars gave Hamilton his big win tally

–by Mark Cipolloni–

Lewis Hamilton broke Michael Schumacher’s F1 win record for one simple reason – From 2014-2020 Mercedes dominated the Formula 1 landscape with seven Constructors’ and Drivers’ titles, six of those Drivers’ crowns going the way of Hamilton.

Aldo Costa was the chief Design Engineer of all those cars.

Since Costa moved back to Italy and is semi-retired with Dallara, Hamilton hasn’t won a race since.

Can Verstappen beat Hamilton’s records?

As six-time race winner Schumacher points out though, it depends on how long this dominant streak can continue.

“Max Verstappen claimed his 41st career victory in Canada, equalling Ayrton Senna,” Schumacher stated in his Sky Germany column.

“Max controlled the action, even though it wasn’t the ideal Red Bull track.

“However, it is still a long way to Lewis Hamilton’s winning record, so we will have to wait and see how far his dominance lasts.”
