Lewis Hamilton emotional after equaring record Michael Schumacher

Lewis Hamilton was unable to restrain his tears after winning his seventh Formula One World Championship, and the Mercedes driver is now in line with Michael Schumacher.

โ€œ I dont really have any words for it. Im so grateful to everyone. The team, the people in both factories in England… Im so proud of them. And I also want to thank the people around me and my family,โ€ sobbed the Englishman after his victory in Turkey.

โ€œ We always dreamed of this when I was young. This is so important. You should never let yourself be told as a child that you cant do something or cant accomplish something. You should never doubt yourself and never give up,โ€ continued Hamilton.

Hamilton started in Turkey only as sixth, initially had a good start, but then fell back slightly. When he finally came to the lead in a spectacular match, he left the final number two Sergio Pรฉrez for half a minute. โ€œThats what this team does. We were not satisfied with the qualification, but we have greatly improved ourselves. That says everything about everyones attitude.โ€
