Lewis Hamilton continues celebration after sixth World Championship

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton celebrates with his team after winning his sixth world championship.

The 34-year-old wrote his name into the pantheon of Britain’s all-time sporting greats by winning his sixth Formula One world championship in America.

Hamilton moved above the sport’s Argentinian godfather Juan Manuel Fangio and within striking range of Michael Schumacher’s record collection of seven after he took the chequered flag in Texas in second place.
