HAMILTON: WINS WAS FOR MY DAD
Lewis Hamilton says his stunning victory in Brazil was for his dad.
Brit Hamilton, chasing a record-equalling eighth world title, is now just 14 points behind Championship leader Max Verstappen.
The Mercedes ace said: “I have not had this much support since Silverstone, so to hear the fans it has been humbling.
“What a race! The team did an amazing job and Valtteri did a great job to get as many points as possible.
“I just pushed as fast as I could but this is my hardest weekend I have had [this season].
“My dad reminded me of when I was in F3 in Bahrain, when I started last and finished first – so this is for my dad.
“I never thought we would close the gap like we did today – just never give up and never stop fighting.”
