Lewis Hamilton dominated the headlines again, but a new generation has definitely emerged.
Lewis Hamilton left no room for doubt that he deserved his sixth drivers' world championship title with a dominant victory in Sunday's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, his fifth at Yas Marina, his 11th in 21 races this year and the 84th of his career.
The defending five-time world champion moves 39 points clear in the title race.
If he wins, Hamilton will move clear of fellow Briton Jim Clark and Frenchman Alain Prost.
However, they said they did not blame the stewards, but the rules.
The stewards judged that the Ferrari driver had made an unsafe re-entry and forced Lewis Hamilton off the circuit.
The four-time champion, showing a measured determination, made the most of his car’s superior straight-line speed to clock a best lap.
It will be the first time a sports star has been laid out in the St Stephens’s Cathedral.
The five-time champion emerged victorious and humbled.
Several teams have confirmed they will carry tributes to Lauda on their cars.
Hamilton had earlier posted messages expressing his feelings on social media.
Lauda won the Formula One drivers’ world championship three times, in 1975 and 1977 for Ferrari and in 1984 with McLaren, despite a terrible race crash in 1976.
Legendary Formula One driver Niki Lauda has died at the age of 70, his family said in a statement released to Austrian media early Tuesday.
The two Mercedes drivers are competing against each other … and it’s not much fun for outsiders.
Bottas clocked a stunning track record lap in 1min 15.406sec to finish six-tenths clear of his teammate in the top 10 shootout on a dry and gusty day.
