Lewis Hamilton has earned his fourth F1 world championship crown despite finishing ninth in Mexico Grand Prix after a collision with Sebastian Vettel. Did the collision happened on purpose or was it just a bad luck? That’s what Hamilton wanted to know after Vettel’s Ferrari was driven into the back of Hamilton’s Mercedes.
Because of the damage dealt with the collision, they both had to pit at the end of the first lap, with Hamilton undergoing a tire change and Vettel a nose change. Vettel finished the race in 4th place while Hamilton suffering damage from the collision could only finish the race in 9th place. First place was granted to Max Verstappen after he passed Sebastian Vettel.
Despite winning his fourth title, he was not feeling that great. “Honestly it doesn’t feel real,” he said. “It was a horrible way to win the title, to be honest, but what could I do?”
Hamilton’s fourth F1 title also got him closer to Schumacher’s seven titles. Hamilton is now tied with Sebastian Vettel and Alain Prost, with all of them owning four titles.
Even though it doesn’t feel real, we are sure that he’s proud to be crowned for the fourth time and we wish him luck in next season.
