Have a great day, Sir Lewis,” they posted on X (you know, the new Twitter).
Then Mercedes chimed in. Hamilton’s had a hell of a run with them, snagging six world titles. “He’s a 7x World Champion. A game changer. A change maker. He’s royalty. Happy Birthday, Sir Lewis Hamilton,” they posted on X.
Hamilton’s got his eyes on the prize for the new F1 season. A win would be the best birthday gift, right? It’s been a rough couple of years, with no wins and watching teammate George Russell snag the only win for Mercedes since the new F1 cars rolled out. In 2024, Toto Wolff’s team is hoping to close the gap with Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen.
