The Stevenage-born racer is now just five wins and a title away from matching Schumacher’s record hauls and Wolff has backed his driver to stay at the pinnacle of F1 for some time.
The Austrian has drawn parallels between Hamilton and Brady, who won his sixth Super Bowl with the New England Patriots in 2018 and, at the age of 42, now plies his trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“He is 35 now, the way he adapts I think he can race beyond his 40s,” Wolff said. “He can push the boundaries in the way Tom Brady did in American football.
“Who would have thought that a quarterback could win a Super Bowl beyond the age of 40? Tom Brady has shown everybody that it is possible. Maybe Lewis will do the same in F1.”
