Lewis Hamilton makes history, in the rainy Turkish Grand Prix, the Englishman put his name in the records again, equaling Michael Schumacher’s record in seven world titles for the Formula One race.
To win the Formula One Drivers’ Championship in Istanbul Park, the Mercedes driver needed to finish eight points ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas and did so easily in often treacherous conditions successive title by winning the race after the sixth start.
Last month, Hamilton, 35, surpassed Schumacher’s record of 91 Grand Prix wins to become the sport’s most successful runner, and has long since broken the German record at the top.
If he continues in the sport, it is widely expected that Hamilton will add to his tally of more world titles. However, whatever he achieves in the coming years, his place in the Formula One group is guaranteed.
“For all the kids who dream of the impossible, you can do it too – I believe in you guys,” said Hamilton, after crossing the finish line.
