F1: Mercedes saw a ‘new Lewis’ in final F1 2018 races after title victory

Lewis Hamilton hadn’t won a race after winning a title in any of his previous four championship wins.
Mercedes Formula 1 chief Toto Wolff felt Lewis Hamilton’s on-track performances reached another level following his championship victory in Mexico, allowing the team to see a “new Lewis.”
Hamilton had previously won the F1 title early in 2015 and 2017, but saw his post-coronation form dip in both years, failing to win any of the remaining races both times around.
For Wolff, the desire to help Mercedes secure its fifth straight constructors’ title – clinched one race after Hamilton’s championship victory in Mexico – was the biggest factor fuelling Hamilton’s late-season form.
