Lewis Hamilton Signs Off 2019 Grand Prix Season In Style With Abu Dhabi Win

Lewis Hamilton dominated the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to end the season in which he won a sixth world drivers’ Formula One title on a high.

The Mercedes driver led away from pole position and cruised off into the distance, untroubled by anyone behind.  The Brit took pole, led every lap, set the fastest lap and finished 17 seconds clear of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.

Hamilton’s victory was his 11th of the 21 races that have been held this season, and equals his previous best performance – in 2014 and 2018.

It also moves his career total to 84 wins, just seven behind the all-time record held by Michael Schumacher.

That sets the 34-year-old Briton up to potentially exceed Schumacher’s win tally and match his all-time record of seven world championships in 2020.
