Damon Hill hails Lewis Hamilton’s drive to victory in Brazilian Grand Prix ‘one of the best drives I’ve ever seen’ as Mercedes driver starts from 10th to win with an ‘utterly awesome’ performance

Damon Hill hailed Lewis Hamilton’s victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix as among the greatest drives ever seen in Formula One. On an extraordinary weekend in Sao Paulo, Hamilton overcame a combined 25-place grid penalty to pass rival Max Verstappen and re-ignite his stuttering championship charge. Hamilton reduced Verstappen’s title lead from 21 to 14 points with three races remaining and 78 points still available. But Hamilton was up to third by the start of lap five and then fought his way past Verstappen on lap 59 of 71 in one of the best races of the modern era. ‘With the penalties it was the hardest weekend I had,’ said Hamilton, 36. Hamilton replied: ‘It was actually 25, but you are right.’.
