Lewis Hamilton's fourth championship title has put him amongst some of the greatest drivers in Formula One - and he’s still only 32.
His four wins ties him with Sebastian Vettel and Alain Prost, while he’s one behind Juan Manuel Fangio.
But Hamilton still has plenty of work to do if he’s to catch Michael Schumacher’s record of seven championships.
And while Schumacher’s tally looks safe for now, Hamilton is already setting his sights on his fifth title next season.
And, in doing so, he took a blatant dig at his former teammate Nico Rosberg.
Last year, Rosberg surprisingly quit the sport after winning the world title whilst admitting he had been drained by his battle on and off the track with Hamilton.
But despite the Brit revealing he wants to go out on top, there’s no way he’s going to follow in Rosberg’s footsteps by taking the “easy way” out.
Hamilton's dig at Rosberg
"Four is a great number. But I want number five now," Hamilton declared.
"I want to go out at the top…I could do the easy thing, like obviously Nico did, which is just stop and retreat with these four titles. But I think there's more in me.
"I think there's more to come, more of a challenge. There's harder times ahead and I like that, I love that. That's challenging and it would be so boring without it."
While Rosberg now has plenty of time to concentrate on family life, Hamilton knows he can do all of that when he does eventually retire.
"I will continue to race while I love it, I've enjoyed it this year more than ever," he said.
"I do think about how it would be so nice at some stage just to live in one place, a lot more socialising, walking your dogs every day or surfing.
"But then I'm thinking, there's a lot of life to live beyond 40. There's a lot to go."
