Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton MBE HonFREng is a British racing driver currently competing in Formula One for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team.
Lewis Hamilton has as at now won the 8th race of his career by dominating in the Belgian Grand Prix 2020. The 35 year-old defeated his team-mate Valtteri Bottas and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen to stretch his lead to a massive 47 points.
This is what he said after winning the race; “It wasn’t the easiest of races. I had to lock-up into turn 5 which gave me vibration on the tyre. It was a bit of a struggle. I was nervous we might have a scenario like Silverstone where I had the puncture so I was nursing it to the end”.
I know it is not what everyone wants to see, a Mercedes at the front, but no matter how much success we have we just keep our heads down. Back at the office, there are no guys celebrating”.
It is all about how we can win the next race and it is an incredible environment to be in. I am 35 going towards 36 but I feel better than ever so that is a positive”.
Lewis also celebrated the win by paying a special tribute to actor Chadwick Boseman who died on after a long fight with Colon Cancer. Lewis Hamilton was captured with his arms crossed in paying his respect to the Black Panther Star.
