Hamilton secures F1 title in Mexico

October 29, 2018 -- Lewis Hamilton’s fourth-place finish in Mexico secured his fifth Formula 1 title, equalling the haul of Argentine legend Juan Manuel Fangio in the all-time standings. The British driver is now only two World titles behind equalling the record of seven held by Michael Schumacher.

Hamilton made his debut for McLaren in 2007, aged 22, finishing third in Melbourne, Australia, sealing his first F1 title one year later to become the youngest ever World Champion -- a record eclipsed by Sebastian Vettel in 2010.

With 71 race victories in total -- including nine this season -- he is second only to Schumacher, as he now aims to chase down the German great after signing a £40m-per-year contract extension with Mercedes in July.

Hamilton is part of a select club of only five drivers with four or more titles, comprising fellow four-time winners Sebastian Vettel and Alain Prost, Juan Manuel Fangio on five and record holder Michael Schumacher on seven.

Remaining races:
November 11, 2018 - Brazilian Grand Prix
November 25, 2018 - Abu Dhabi Grand Prix


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
