Hamilton matches Schumacher’s F1 title record


Lewis Hamilton clinched a seventh world championship and became the most successful racing driver in history with a masterful victory in the Turkish Grand Prix.

The Mercedes driver equalled Michael Schumacher’s achievement in terms of titles after already surpassing the German’s win total last month.

Victory at a treacherously wet and slippery Istanbul Park track in a topsy-turvy race was the 94th of his career.

As he received the congratulations of his team, Hamilton was almost overcome with emotion in the car after the race, saying: “To all the kids out there, dream the impossible.”
