Mercedes are chasing a record seven constructors’ championship on the bounce and this week fought off a challenge from Red Bull regarding the legality of their innovative Dual-Axis Steering system (DAS).
Hamilton said the Silver Arrows’ desire to always push the boundaries of what’s possible has allowed them to stay a car length ahead of the opposition.
“I think we show year-on-year that we continue to be the best team,” Hamilton said. “I think that’s because we’re open-minded. We’re current with the times.
“The guys that I work with, they’re never too stubborn to admit they might be wrong at some stages. And we’re constantly always learning from each other and always pushing the boundaries.
“There’s not really any politics within the team so it’s a united team that we push together. That’s why, every year, we come back because that’s not necessarily always the same in teams.”
