Lewis Hamilton wants to push Mercedes team forward following French Grand Prix 2019's victory

Mercedes riders claimed to push themselves forward despite overwhelming victory on the Paul Ricard track.

"The moment you step back is when you fail. I have no plans to do so", Lewis Hamilton told Sky Sports after the French GP stage.

Commentator Paul Di Resta said that Hamilton was creating his "own league" after finishing the third consecutive round, thereby strengthening the season's leading position and confirming Mercedes' dominance.

But Hamilton urged his associates to continue their efforts to turn to the sixth consecutive championship. He demonstrated that the team recommended racing and safety to achieve fast lap at the end of the race. "They are like: 'Don't bother with the fast lap, you can't reach fastest lap'. I said: 'What do you mean?' We have nothing to lose and I tried to achieve it, "Hamilton said.

The British racer then rolled the finish before the runner-up Valtteri Bottas for 18 seconds but the fastest lap belonged to Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) - set at 63 with a 1 minute record of 32,740 seconds. "I tried and almost won it. My mentality is always fighting, always craving and motivating myself. You should not have any moment to stop", Hamilton said.

Mercedes team has won all eight stages of the season and had six pole wins. Commenting on this, Hamilton said: "My team is quite calm so sometimes you think this is in their calculations. They were like: 'Taking the pole is of course, that's what we anticipated.' Our internal is fun but there is a strange thing that people still want to improve their achievements. After each race, we discovered something that the whole team could do better".
