Lewis Hamilton has insisted "I don't feel like I'm a legend" despite breaking record after record in F1.
The Mercedes driver became the first to reach 100 grand prix wins with victory in Russia and is aiming to break Michael Schumacher's record of championship titles by claiming an eighth this year.
Speaking to Sky Italia, the British driver said: "I don't feel like I'm a legend. I'm still involved.
"I try to be the best every weekend. It is never easy. I always try to refine and be creative with the setup of the car, every weekend, every race, every season."
Asked if he still had dreams and aspirations despite his successes, Hamilton replied: "Sure, I certainly have.
"You should never stop dreaming, right? Every year I make a list of things I want to achieve, maybe I've tried ten and got two. Or just one!
"So some things end up on next year's list, but the dream is pretty much the same every year."
Hamilton outlines dream for this year
As well as his remarkable on-track performances, Hamilton has garnered support and acclaim for his off-track endeavours aimed at raising inclusivity and diversity in the F1 paddock and more generalistic issues in society such as climate change.
"The dream that drives me this year is to make this sport more open, more inclusive, a new path dedicated to engineers and other people who, otherwise, could not even dream of being part of this sport," he explained.
"I wish all teams were part of it. We live in a world where many people are unaware of what is happening and other people think that if something doesn't concern you, you don't have to do anything.
"We live in a world where it is important to make your voice heard. It is crazy to hear certain news, such as the restriction of women's rights to abortion in the United States, it's crazy, isn't it?
"And even if as a man it does not concern me directly, it is fair to talk about it. It is right to give your support and be part of a generation that pushes for change. This can be done for any topic, such as climate change and human rights."
What do you think?
Nahhh wen one gets a McLaren contract at 13 with the worst go kart on track and has had more points than all the other teammates in every season other than 2016 and lost a championship by a point in his rookie season I think he qualifies to be in the best car and the best team for the trust he showed in them.
