Lewis Hamilton hailed his victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix as his career’s best. The British driver made an incredible recovery to win after starting 10th on the grid, knocking his Formula One world championship rival, Max Verstappen, into second and reigniting his title challenge.
Hamilton had a difficult weekend at Interlagos, where he was penalized twice: first for a new engine and again for a DRS violation. The world champion then rallied from last on the grid to fifth in Saturday’s sprint qualifying race, then overhauled half of the field on Sunday to secure an unexpected triumph.
In his 15th season in Formula One, he has 101 victories and seven championships, and he is seeking to win his eighth. Yet, given of how hard he and his Mercedes team had to fight in Brazil, it was an outstanding achievement.“I just gave it everything,” he said. “This has definitely been one of the best weekends, if not the best, I have experienced in probably my whole career.
“I feel that this has been one of the most challenging, if not the most challenging, with the things we have faced through the weekend but, in terms of driving, it has maybe been my best.”
His feelings were echoed by the former world champion Damon Hill on Twitter: “That was one of the best drives I’ve ever seen in F1. By anyone. Utterly awesome.”
