Lewis Hamilton pays tribute to Chadwick Boseman after winning Belgian Grand Prix 2020 to secure his 89th victory

Lewis Hamilton has won the 89th race of his career by dominating the Belgian Grand Prix 2020.   The British Formula One driver, 35, led the race from start to finish to defeat team-mate Valtteri Bottas and Red Bull's Max Verstappen to stretch his championship lead to a massive 47 points.     Speaking after the race, he said: “It wasn’t the easiest of races. “I had a lock-up into turn five which gave me a vibration on the tyre.

He swore several times over the team radio and was still seething afterwards, with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel one of those to pass him. Vettel qualified third, behind Valtteri Bottas in pole and Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton in second. “On the final run in Q3 (last part of qualifying) I followed the Ferrari in fr...

Vettel Continues To Outpace Hamilton, But Gap Shrinks

Sebastian Vettel outpaced championship-leading title rival Lewis Hamilton by just eight-hundredths of a second to keep Ferrari on top in Saturday’s third free practice for Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix. The four-time champion German clocked a best lap in one minute and 20.509 in improving weather, after overnight rain, to finish ahead of Hamilton’s Mercedes by 0.081 seconds. Kimi Raikkonen was third in the second Ferrari ahead of fellow-Finn Valtteri Bottas in the second Mercedes, the top four dominating the action as the sun attempted to break through an overcast sky at the historic Autodromo Nazionale Monza. On Friday the two Ferraris had been fastest, followed by Hamilton and Bottas. Max Verstappen was fifth for Red Bull, eight-tenths off the pace, ahead of Kevin Magnussen...
