Lewis Hamilton in seventh heaven as he equals Michael Schumacher’s record of world championship crowns after fighting his way through to take Turkish GP following epic race in the wet

Lewis Hamilton is King of the Track for a record-equalling seventh time. Hamilton is congratulated by Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas (left) after the race as the Finn concedes defeat. Hamilton is jubilant as he shares the moment with Wolff as the pair continue to dominate the sport of Formula One. Hamilton is swarmed by his race engineers after wrapping up yet another world championship for Mercedes. LAP 57/58: Hamilton is on his penultimate lap and it looks to be the right call to overrule his team to pit. Hamilton is now being brought in to change his tyres as a precaution. Hamilton is cruising to victory but there is a threat of rain in the final few laps which could pose a real problem for Mercedes. LAP 48/58: We’ve got 10 laps to go and Hamilton has a pretty sizable gap but he’s on very old tyres. LAP 44/58: Hamilton has been on his current set of tyres for 39 laps now. Hamilton is about to lap his Mercedes team-mate – what a parallel between the two drivers. LAP 24/58: Albon is looking like he could win this race at his current pace. LAP 15/58: Racing has resumed and Hamilton is right on Vettel’s tail. How we had no collisions during these opening two laps is a mystery.
