Lewis Hamilton reflects on ‘leap of faith’ that helped him create F1 history

The British driver can equal Michael Schumacher’s record of seven world titles this weekend at the Turkish Grand Prix. Hamilton also emphasised the importance of his move to Mercedes, with whom he has won five championships, describing it as a “leap of faith”. Hamilton took his first title in 2008 for McLaren having made his debut in 2007. He joined Mercedes in 2013 and won his second championship a year later. Hamilton has all but won the title this season and victory in Istanbul will seal it. When Hamilton left McLaren at the end of 2012 it was seen by many as a very risky decision.
