2015 FIA Price giving ceremony Lewis Hamilton receives 2015 F1 Drivers’ Championship trophy

Lewis Hamilton’s 2015 success writes his name in the history books alongside iconic names such as Sir Jack Brabham, Sir Jackie Stewart, Niki Lauda, Nelson Piquet and his boyhood hero, Ayrton Senna.

On his way to the title, the Briton climbed to third on the lists of both all-time wins and pole positions, and matched the record for the highest number of podiums in a season.

“It’s pretty much impossible to put into words what it means to be a three-time world champion,” Hamilton told official FIA website.

“It is a dream, it’s an incredible feeling and I’m very proud of my family for everything they did to get me here today.

“I remember how hard my Dad and my Mum worked to make sacrifices for me. It’s been a long, long journey – I’ve been racing for 22 years.

“This year, winning the race in Austin and sealing the championship there was one of the most special races – there’s a huge sense of pride in what I have achieved.”
