Lewis Hamilton posts inspirational social media message after sealing sixth F1 world title


Lewis Hamilton has sent an emotional statement to his fans while confirming his plans for the future.

Lewis Hamilton has lavished praise on his fans for their support after he won his sixth F1 World Drivers’ Championship on Sunday.

The Brit moved to within one title of Michael Schumacher’s all-time record of seven, as he moved out of reach of his Mercedes team-mate, Valtteri Bottas, with two races of the season remaining.

The 34-year-old, who won his first title with McLaren back in 2008, has dedicated the triumph to the late great Niki Lauda, before outlining his plans to continue making the F1 legend ‘proud’.

Hamilton wrote on Twitter: “Six World Championships! I can’t begin to describe this feeling, but it’s one I’ll never forget.

“As a kid growing up in Stevenage, it was a wish to win an F1 race and a dream to win a championship, so to be standing here today representing my country, is such an incredible honour and beyond what I could have ever imagined.

“If just one kid sees me standing here and decides to follow their dream, no matter what it may be, nothing would make me more proud.

“I wouldn’t be here without so many of you.

“My amazing family, especially my dad who taught me to never give up, my friends, my team at Mercedes and my fans.

“You’ve been here with me on this journey from the start and it’s been because of you that I stay focused and determined.

“I’m forever grateful from the bottom of my heart for every single one of you for the constant support, encouragement and love.

“This season is for Niki Lauda, my incredible friend and mentor who we lost this year, who proved that courage and determination go hand in hand.

“This one’s for you, Niki. I’ll continue to make you proud.”

Ferrari went into the 2019 season as favourites but Sebastian Vettel failed to make a big impact in the wake of Hamilton, but he has now praised his old foe for winning yet another title.

“I think now is the time for you to write as many good things as you can,” Vettel told Sky Sports.

“If somebody wins the title six times he deserves all of it. That’s what I told him as well.”
