Lewis Hamilton became the most successful Formula 1 driver of all time, after winning the world championship in Turkey. The Turkish GP was a tough race and Hamilton only needed to defeat his Mercedes teammate, Valterri Bottas, to clinch the title. Bottas was, theoretically, the only person who could challenge Hamilton for the world championship. Lewis Hamilton’s win was his seventh world championship win, a record that equals that of all-time great, Michael Schumacher. Lewis Hamilton (pictured above) has now surpassed Schumacher and is in a class of his own.

An Especially Tough Turkish Grand Prix
The Turkish Grand Prix was especially tough as the track was wet and as one pundit described it, ‘drying but in no way dry’. The wet conditions saw numerous drivers skid and slide out of the track with others losing control of their racing cars. A good example of such a driver, who had a tough time in the Turkish GP, was Max Verstappen of Red Bull. He is a title contender but had a sluggish day in Turkey, spinning out of control six times.
