Hamilton is the third racer to ever win five Formula One championships and it's expected that he'll achieve more if he keeps racing, The Daily Express reported.
"It's been a special year, I think for everyone, and I guess I can only really talk for myself but I think being able to tap into your creativity is only a positive - there's no negatives about that".
"Mercedes is my family, I grew up with them". At their age I had the same kind of eye of the tiger.
"But even so, Michael was just such a genius in how he implemented himself into Ferrari and what he did with that team and yeah, I will always be a fan of him".
"I feel very honoured to have my name alongside his".
Max Verstappen seems to be on a roll in the last part of this season, and Daniel Ricciardo looks like he is on the exact opposite of 'a roll.' Red Bull will be looking to finish the season strong and prepare for next year, and at this point, the Honey Badger will just be aiming to finish a race cleanly.
The race will also be a farewell for McLaren's Fernando Alonso, who won his two world titles with Renault at the Brazilian track in 2005 and 2006 and is leaving Formula One after Abu Dhabi.
Had his team-mate Nico Rosberg not won the 2016 crown, Hamilton would be celebrating the same run with Mercedes that Schumacher had with Ferrari, while his shock, narrow defeat as a rookie in 2007 is another title near-miss.
Hamilton moved level with Juan Manuel Fangio on five titles with his latest championship victory last Sunday in Mexico, which means only seven-time champion Schumacher stands ahead of him in the all-time list.
"As long as we provide a vehicle that is competitive to win championships and he continues to drive like he does, this can be a relationship that goes forever", Wolff told Sky F1.
