Hamilton: Brazilian victory probably the most plain-sailing race I’ve had in 10 years

Lewis Hamilton wins a chaotic rain-hit Brazilian Grand Prix and the Brit crossed the line 11.4 seconds ahead of Mercedes team-mate and title rival Nico Rosberg and reduced his deficit to 12 points with 25 available.

Hamilton on finally winning in Brazil, setting a new record in the process for victories at 24 different F1 tracks.

Abu Dhabi in a fortnight will be the scene for the title showdown among the Mercedes team-mates after reigning champion Hamilton survived a race that was repeatedly disrupted by heavy rain and crashes.

“This is the race I have been dreaming of winning since I was very, very young. These experiences feel surreal and it won’t kick in until later. Hamilton told Sky F1.

“It’s a hard, hard grand prix to win and today was one of the most difficult in terms of rain and aquaplaning and everything. But probably the most plain-sailing race I’ve had in 10 years.”

“I’m hunting and all I can do is doing what I am doing right now. Finally the reliability has been good and the results are really showing that,” says Hamilton. ”

Rosberg now needs a podium finish in the final event on November 27 to seal his first title triumph.

“I was just chilling up front. When it rains it is usually a good day for me. Today was tricky for everyone,” said the Briton Hamilton, after denying Rosberg the race win the German needed to lift the title.

“But for me, no mistakes, no issues, no spins. It was quite interesting to hear along the race how many people behind were spinning but yeah I did not have that problem, so I’m really happy about it.”
“We are creating history in this team,” added Hamilton, who said he was “hunting” his team-mate.
