Ace Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton has said that Mercedes is capable of competing with the game's top teams like Red Bull, McLaren and Ferrari next season.
Hamilton, who was making his first official appearance for the German team, claimed he lives to win, adding winning with Mercedes next season is not an impossible task, the Daily Mail reports.
Hamilton, who ended his six Grand Prix season with McLaren after 15 years, said that although beating the top teams is going to be a big challenge, he is expecting it to be an interesting journey for him as well as his team.
