34 year old Lewis Hamilton wins his 6th F1?world?title in the US Grand Prix on Sunday, congrats to the Mercedes #44 (driver).
What an incredible weekend, I can’t believe it, I really can’t believe it,” said Hamilton over race radio at the finish of his 11th victory of the season.
Hamilton is at the peak of his career as he has won the title in the past three seasons for his dominant Mercedes team.
“It’s beyond surreal, that my life journey has brought me to this point in winning the sixth title. I don’t really know how I’m supposed to feel right now,” Hamilton said. “I don’t believe in the whole Cloud Nine thing – but I’m flying super high right now.”
Key stats – 83 race wins; sixth F1? world title (2008-2019); on average won 10 Grand Prix; third consecutive title in three years (2017, 2018, 2019); second most successful driver of all time; fifth title in six years (2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019).
“It’s an unbelievable moment,” his father Anthony said. “Six championships, whoever would believe it? It means the world.”
Only Michael Schumacher with seven world titles stands ahead of Hamilton.
Personally, I think there is no limit to the milestones he could yet reach”, says Toto Wolff, his team principal and the man at the helm for five of his six title triumphs. Lewis is still very motivated and you can see that he wants to win every single race. We need to provide him with a good car. So long as that is the case, I believe he can go for more.”
Great stuff Lewis??keep rising and more grease to your championship leg??bow????
