He’s now won three more than his hero Ayrton Senna. And he needs just one more to tie Michael Schumacher. Lewis Hamilton has earned his sixth Formula 1 driver’s title. The 34-year old Brit takes the top spot with just two races remaining on the F1 calendar.
Though teammate Valtteri Bottas won outright in Austin, Hamilton’s second place finish gives him more than enough points to add a punctuation mark to the 2019 season.
Hamilton has won in 2008, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2019. That’s one hell of a run, and it doesn’t seem like the (no longer a) youngster is slowing down anytime soon. In 2020, he will vie to tie Schumacher for the most championships of all time. And it would be of no surprise if he continues on from there.
Congrats Lewis Hamilton. Six F1 titles is a truly remarkable achievement.
