Hamilton stelt F1-titel zeker in Mexico
October 29, 2018 -- Lewis Hamiltons vierde plaats in Mexico
verzekerde hem van zijn vijfde F1-titel,
en staat daarmee gelijk aan de Argentijnse legende Juan Manuel Fangio in the all-time stand. De Britse coureur is nu nog maar twee wereldtitels verwijderd van het recors van zeven van 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.
