Lewis Hamilton etched his name in motorsport history yesterday, securing his sixth F1 driver’s title at the United States Grand Prix. The British Mercedes driver clinched the championship coming home second to team mate Bottas, less than a second ahead of Verstappen in third.
Hamilton may divide opinion when he’s out of the car, but when he’s in it, no one can deny he’s one of the best racers the world has ever seen, and one of the greatest sportsmen Britain has ever produced. The achievement moves him to within reach of Michael Schumacher’s all-time record of seven World Championships – a mouth-watering prospect for next season’s competition.
Gravity Media continued its long-standing support to F1, overseeing transmission in Texas for Whisper and Channel 4. Although the title is all wrapped up for 2019, we’ll be in Brazil and Abu Dhabi for the final two races of the year. Can Hamilton secure both to set a personal record of 12 wins in a season? We wouldn’t bet against him.
