F1 Brazilian Grand Prix LIVE REACTION: Lewis Hamilton jumps NINE places to WIN Sao Paulo race against all odds

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.”
