Black-British Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton wins a superb race at the Turkish Grand Prix to clinch his seventh F1 title while equalling legendary F1 driver’s record German Micheal Schumacher and goes on to become the most successful racing driver in history.
Lewis Hamilton who had already surpassed Schumacher’s record for the numbers of race wins and podium finishes last month. He pulled a masterclass victory at a treacherously wet and slippery Istanbul Park track in a topsy-turvy race which was the 94th of the 35-year-old Briton’s career.
As he received the congratulations of his team, Hamilton was almost overcome with emotion in the car after the race, saying: “To all the kids out there, dream the impossible.”
Once out of the car, he added: “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.”
Lewis Hamilton, who does not yet have a contract for next year, added that he would “love to stay” in F1 and wanted to continue to campaign for change when it comes to human rights, diversity and environmentalism.
