This win puts him at par with Micheal Schumacher’s illustrious record of seven world titles.
Reacting to his record-breaking victory, he said, “I’ve got to say thank you to my family. We dreamed of this when we were young, watching the Grand Prix, and this is beyond our dreams. It’s so important for kids – dream the impossible. You’ve got to work for it, chase it, and never give up or doubt yourself.”
Hamilton’s seventh title has been won with three races in the 2020 season.
