Still rising: Lewis Hamilton makes F1 history with 92nd win
Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton of Britain celebrates after winning the Formula One Portuguese Grand Prix at the Algarve International Circuit in Portimao, Portugal, Sunday, Oct. 25, 2020. Observers questioned the move and in 2013 Hamilton won only one race while Vettel finished the season with 13. Hamilton was dominant in 2015, sealing his third F1 title at the U.S. Grand Prix with three races to spare. 2, Hamilton won the next two championships in 2017 and 2018 as Vettel blew midseason leads for Ferrari. Last year's title was emphatic as Hamilton won 11 races compared to three for Bottas, finishing 87 points clear of him.
Hamilton saddened and hurt by Ecclestone's racism comments
Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton has criticized ignorant and uneducated comments by former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone. "Damn, I just don't even know where to start on this one ... so sad and disappointing to read these comments, Hamilton posted on Instagram. It will just make people think, which is more important, Ecclestone replied. Ecclestone insisted Hamilton had never discussed this, and was surprised Hamilton took offense. At a time when unity is needed to tackle racism and inequality, we completely disagree with Bernie Ecclestones comments that have no place in F1 or society," F1 said.
