Lewis Hamilton heads into Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix at 4.10pm as the most successful driver in Formula One history, and now a seven-time world champion, but the Briton will not be slowing down as he aims to round out a record-breaking season in style.
The Mercedes driver clinched the title at the previous race in Turkey to equal Michael Schumacher’s record seven, having already surpassed the Ferrari great’s tally of 91 race wins.
With three races to go and 10 wins from 14, Hamilton is on course for his most successful campaign yet and can become only the third driver after Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel to win 13 times in a season.
He says: “Now it’s a bit more chilled but I still have three races ahead of me that I want to win.”
With Mercedes dominant, the Briton is favourite again but teammate Valtteri Bottas will be out to stop him.
