HAMILTON IS A SIX TIMES WORLD CHAMPION
Lewis Hamilton is now a Six Times World Champion. He now sits one ahead of the legendary Fangio and only one behind the great Michael Schumacher. And it seems Hamilton has no intention of stopping anytime soon as he appears to be in the best form of his career and we could see him become the most successful Formula One driver of all time would he win two more world titles.
Bottas started on pole position after a strong Saturday and Hamilton began in fifth. Between the two Silver Arrows was Verstappen and the two Ferrari's of Vettel and Leclerc. The Mercedes' couldn't have asked for a better start with Bottas leading into turn one and Hamilton chasing closely behind managing to get into fourth by turn one and then into third by the middle of the 'S' section.
It was almost a race to forget for Ferrari with Vettel retiring with a suspension failure early on in the race. Thankfully Leclerc managed a very respectable fourth place.
McLaren looked at this race as a way to get further ahead of rivals Renault and Toro Rosso. Norris and Ricciardo had some exciting wheel to wheel racing throughout the race and at one point Norris found himself making overtakes on drivers such as Vettel.
Looking to the back of the field you have Perez who after receiving a penalty on Friday started from the pit lane and had a good start and found himself in 15th after around 15-20 laps into the race. Kimi Raikkonen (2018 US Grand Prix Winner) also made a good start in his Alfa Romeo getting from 18th to 11th in just a matter of laps.
When speaking of the back of the grid you can't not mention teams like Williams and HAAS who both had cars retire during the race Kubica was forced to retire mid way through the race with a hydraulics issue and for home team HAAS, Kevin Magnussen had his car go up in a puff of black braking smoke forcing him to stop the car in the gravel trap in sector two.
The next race is the Brazilian Grand Prix.
