Lewis Hamilton wins 7th world title after brilliant Turkey wet victory to equal Michael Schumacher record

LEWIS HAMILTON clinched his record-equalling seventh world title by putting in a vintage performance to win the Turkish Grand Prix. With his only rival, Valtteri Bottas sinking like a stone after so many spins that he was probably left dizzy, Hamilton didn’t even need to complete this race. He bailed out of an attempt to overtake Vettel on Lap 16 and ran wide, allowing Alex Albon to pass, dropping Hamilton down a place. Another two spins for Bottas dropped him further back as Hamilton kept things clean, despite keeping up the pace. As for Bottas, he was sent into another THREE SPINS, and with 12 laps to go there was the ultimate indignity, as Hamilton lapped his teammate. But the rain stayed away as Hamilton crossed the line for a victory he conjured this out of nothing.
