Lewis Hamilton driven by pain of past failures after Hungarian GP win

“It was a pretty beautiful day,” Lewis Hamilton said after winning the Hungarian Grand Prix at a canter, and – from his point of view – he wasn’t wrong there. It brought Hamilton level with Michael Schumacher as the driver with the most wins at a single circuit. “I know what it’s like to lose the championship by one point and I am not giving up any unless I have to,” Hamilton said. Then in 2016, at Mercedes, Hamilton was much more badly affected by reliability than team-mate Nico Rosberg. It was this consistent excellence that won Hamilton his titles in 2017 and 2018 against a Ferrari car that was faster for much of those seasons, but was driven and operated by a driver and team who made more mistakes.
