Crash.net considers the main threats to Lewis Hamilton’s current dominance in Formula 1.

Hamilton heads into the 2020 Formula 1 season as the red-hot favourite for the drivers’ world championship, having won the last three titles on offer.

Now a six-time world champion, the 35-year-old Briton has the chance to continue his and Mercedes’ streak of history in the V6 hybrid era and equal Michael Schumacher’s all-time record of seven drivers’ world championships.

Despite sitting on the verge of history, Hamilton has repeatedly insisted he is not getting carried away with thoughts about matching Schumacher’s long-standing achievements.

"It’s not something I think about,” Hamilton said.

“I always say that numbers are not really a massive thing for me. I plan to be here a little bit longer so hopefully I get there but we shall see.”

Hamilton is at the top of his game and seemingly unbeatable, but is there anyone who can halt his run of success?

We’ve taken a look at some of his biggest potential threats on the eve of the new season.

The likes of Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and the Ferrari duo are among the most likely to challenge Hamilton’s supremacy.

Will 2020 be the year he is dethroned?
