Lewis Hamilton cemented his place in the F1 hall of fame today, winning his fifth world championship.

The Mercedes driver secured the 2018 crown with a fourth place finish in the Mexican grand prix, having previously been crowned champion in 2008, 2014, 2015 and 2017.

Hamilton is just the third driver in history to win five or more Drivers’ Championships after Juan Manuel Fangio, the 1950s great, and Michael Schumacher.

If Hamilton can win three more world championships before he calls it a day, he will beat the current record of seven, held by Michael Schumacher.
