The season finale will take place in Abu Dhabi as it has for the previous few seasons, but with significant changes to the course that the drivers are familiar with. Since 2009, Hamilton has won five races and been on the podium nine times while racing there. Verstappen has also got a win over there (2020) and he also earned a place in the Abu Dhabi GP's podium twice before too (2018 and 2019).
Hamilton becomes the fourth Formula One driver to be recognized with a knighthood – the likes of triple champion Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss and the late Australian Jack Brabham were the three to be awarded a knighthood in the history of the sport before Lewis Hamilton.
Having more wins (94), more poles (97), and more podiums (163) than anybody in history, Lewis Hamilton is the most decorated driver to have ever raced in Formula One. So far so good in this current campaign, he’s got 10 wins – Hamilton earned his 10th victory today at the Turkish Grand Prix in Istanbul as Racing Point’s Sergio Perez and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel completed the podium after an exciting race.
Lewis Hamilton expresses his disappointment with the silence of Formula One as the world stand up against racism and injustice and oppression of minorities following the death of George Floyd in the hands of US police.
