Lewis Hamilton says that the target on his back is nothing new, the Mercedes driver heading into the 2020 season trying to equal Michael Schumacher’s record of seven world titles.

Last year, the British driver won his sixth title.

“I’ve had a target on my back since the day I won my first championship when I was 10 years old so it’s nothing new to me,” Hamilton told

“I’ve always been the only black driver there, I’ve always been generally at the front of the championships, so it’s no different to any of the other 27 years of driving – so I’m quite comfortable in that space.”
