A big well done to Lewis and Co. His family have sacrificed a lot over the years, and he has finally reached the ultimate goal of becoming F1 World Champion.
The race was full of drama, on the penultimate lap Lewis was overtaken by Vettel, relegating him to 6th place, and out of the championship winning points. But Luck was on his side, Glocks toyota had trouble on the second last corner, and Lewis was ble to regain 5th spot, and with it, the F1 World Championship.
The race was so tight at the end, that Ferrari had alread began celebrating, and at one point both Mclaren and Ferrariw were celebrating what they thought was their world championship. But in the end, Ferrari realised what happened to Glock, which meant Lewis was able to claim 5th place, and won the title by a single point. An amazing end to an amazing F1 season.
There are already photos going around the net such as this:
That moment where they realised they hadn’t won, must have hurt. I’m sure everyone looks forward to the next F1 Season.
