Lewis Hamilton has made history with his seventh Formula 1 title win on Sunday November 15.
The British superstar became the most successful racing driver ever with a masterful victory in the Turkish Grand Prix, equalling Michael Schumacher’s achievement in terms of titles, after already surpassing the German’s number of race wins last month.
Lewis’ victory at the teacherously wet and slippery Istanbul Park track in a topsy-turvy race was the 94th of his career. The emotional driver who remains the sport’s only black driver, went on to describe what a hard journey it had been to become the most successful driver in the history of Formula One.
“Seven is just unimaginable but when you work with such a great group of people and you really trust each other, there is just no end to what can do together.
“I feel like I’m only just getting started, it’s really weird.”
Leading up to today and even after I crossed the line, I’ve been gathering my thoughts about what’s most important to me. This year has been so unpredictable. With the pandemic and obviously the season being pushed back by several months, I had the most downtime I’ve ever had in my life. It gave me the chance to really think about my ultimate purpose. Seven World Championships means the world to me, I can’t even describe how much, but there’s still another race we’ve yet to win.
