The 2023 campaign witnessed Red Bull Racing establishing numerous records in the sport, including the highest points tally in Constructors' Championship history and the widest points margin for securing a Constructors' title in a single Formula 1 season, as reported by Formula 1.

The unparalleled dominance of the Austrian Constructor has left many observers astonished, prompting various drivers to share their thoughts on the Milton-Keynes-based powerhouse.

Following a forgettable Grand Prix for the Mercedes-Benz driver, Hamilton addressed the media after the race. Touching on various topics, he made a striking statement about his expectations for the next season. The 39-year-old, as quoted by RBRdaily, remarked,

"Red Bull won by 17 seconds, and they have not touched the car since August or July... So you can pretty much guess where they're going to be next year."

Hamilton's words resonate with the prevailing sentiment among many in the F1 grid, suggesting a widespread belief that the Milton-Keynes team is likely to continue its dominance into the next season.

Anticipation is high that Red Bull Racing will once again unveil a formidable car, reminiscent of the RB19, capable of dominating the grid.
