Lewis Hamilton has won his sixth F1 Driver’s Championship.
Lewis Hamilton was reduced to tears after winning the F1 championship at the United States Grand Prix.
He finished second in Austin after Valterri Bottas moved ahead of him in Lap 52 to win the race.
But nobody can take anything away from the Brit who has had another phenomenal season.
It’s his sixth world championship, meaning he is just one behind the great Michael Schumacher’s record.
It looked as if Hamilton was going to win in Texas too, and he nearly did steal it.
Throughout the race, Hamilton expressed his dissatisfaction at his tyres which prevented him from hitting top gear.
But Bottas was worthy of the win after storming yesterday’s qualifying.
The emotion poured out of Hamilton at the end, after all of his hard work was rewarded with the Driver’s Championship.
“GET IN THERE LEWIS!” Bono said on the radio.
“What a drive mate. Champion of the world. And you did that in style.”
“Still we rise, still we rise,” Hamilton replied.
“What an incredible weekend. Thank you so much guys for today, and to everyone who came out.
“I can’t believe it. I really can’t believe it.”
Hamilton also paid tribute to his father’s influence on his career.
“It’s overwhelming if I’m honest. It was a tough race today and yesterday was a difficult day for us – Valtteri did a great job so congratulations to him,” he told Sky Sports.
“I didn’t know if it would be possible but I worked as hard as I could here with my team back at the factory.
“My mum, dad, step-mum and step-dad and my family are here and it’s an honour to be here [with six]with those greats.
“My dad told me when I was like six or seven never to give up and that’s kind of the family motto. I pushed as hard as I could I was hopeful I could win today but I didn’t have it in the tyres.”
