Lewis Hamilton - 2018 the best year of my career

Lewis Hamilton - 2018 the best year of my career

Lewis Hamilton clinched a fifth Formula 1 world drivers' championship in Mexico Sunday, joining legends of the sport Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher as one of only three drivers ever.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner blamed Ricciardo for not spotting the mechanical errors earlier.

Verstappen went on to dominate the race from the front while Ricciardo retired with a hydraulics failure as he was running in second place with ten laps remaining. How can I just be better all round, a better driver in the auto but also with my team, in the garage, with the engineers, back at the factory, trying to be a better son and friend? Still, the 21-year-old Verstappen was fuming after missing his chance to be the youngest driver to earn pole position in F1 history.

Verstappen said his vehicle didn't feel right despite fast times in Saturday morning practice and the early stages of qualifying.

"Just things are happening on Sunday which I've got no more explanation for".

Ricciardo's retirement was his 11 in the last 23 races.

Yet he didn't get the leisurely Sunday drive he would have liked over the 71 laps in the high altitude at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.

Hamilton could have let the Red Bulls ride off from the start, but he took a shot at the lead when by slipping into a gap between them.

"He's just had an immensely frustrating afternoon". "Hopefully we're in a quicker vehicle all day". "The team has worked very hard for this so it is crucial that we now make the most of it".

But Hamilton said it was too soon to consider that.

It did not come without controversy - Vettel furious at Hamilton for a collision between the two - but it was the Briton who again came out on top with a slick overtake of Raikkonen with eight laps to go.

The team constructor's championship is still up for grabs between Mercedes and Ferrari. But it was a run of wins over the second half of the season that sent Hamilton to Mexico City all but assured of the championship. For the second consecutive year, he fended off a strong challenge from Ferrari in a season when even Hamilton had to admit the Italian team often had the stronger vehicle. "You can understand his frustration and hope that this dark cloud that is following him around lifts for the final two races". "If not, I'll hold position".
