With his victory - his 94th win - in the Turkish Grand Prix on 15 November 2020, which has been described as “masterful” in view of the atrocious conditions at the Istanbul Park Circuit and starting from 6th place on the grid, Lewis Hamilton has achieved his seventh world title!
This equals the achievement of Michael Schumacher.
Hamilton has been described as the greatest Formula One driver of all time and remarked on his success, quite emotionally, as follows:
“To all the kids out there, dream the impossible.”
And added, quite modestly, as follows:
“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 what you can do together.”
As yet, Hamilton who does not have a contract for next year, said that he would love to stay in Formula One and he will also continue to campaign for change in human rights, diversity and environmentalism.
Hamilton won his titles in 2008, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019 and again this year.
Once again, we offer him our warmest congratulations and wish him well in the future!
