Hamilton Opens Up On Nearing Title

Lewis Hamilton has revealed winning the 2019 Drivers’ Championship would be possibly the most satisfying moment of his career. The Mercedes star can wrap up the world title on Sunday, if he can finish in the top seven at the Mexican Grand Prix, with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel languishing behind.

With his fifth Drivers’ Championship in sight, Hamilton has admitted winning the title this season would be one of the proudest moments in his Formula One career to date.

“You are in a different place each time you get an opportunity to win it. Each is special in its own way. Just winning the title has always been the goal,” the 33-year-old told reporters.

“The first one felt incredibly hard [to win] but from then on it’s got harder and harder.
“I would say this one has been one of my most enjoyable years with the things I’ve been faced with so if I were to win the title it would be one I would probably be most proud of and be able to appreciate most – just being older and that’s what happens when you get older I guess.”
