Defending Formula One champ Lewis Hamilton doesn’t want to take all the credit for his open-wheel success.

Sure, there’s Mercedes power under the hood, but another part of the team that’s just as vital is Petronas oil and lubricants.

In a new video, Hamilton pays tribute to the Petronas team as unsung heroes of his and Mercedes’ success. The Malaysian-based company has a whole team of several dozen individuals dedicated to keeping Mercedes and Hamilton and teammate Nico Rosberg on top.
