PARIS (AP) — Lewis Hamilton credits improved reliability from Mercedes and a better relationship with his teammate as key factors behind his fourth Formula One championship.
He scored points in every F1 race this year, a first for him. He won nine, and broke Michael Schumacher's record for pole positions. He has 72 to go with his 62 race wins, second only to Schumacher's 91.
"I'm incredibly grateful to the team, we've had the best reliability," Hamilton said on Friday. "I don't remember another team having this reliability."
