British Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton produced a masterful performance to win the Brazilian Grand Prix title in spite of wet, chaotic and crash-ridden conditions, taking the title battle to the final race set for Abu Dhabi. Marking his ninth win of 2016 and the 52nd of his career, Hamilton now places second as the most successful race winners of all time, ahead of Alain Prost at 51 and behind Michael Schumacher with 91.
The win came at no ease as the race saw several high-speed accidents, two stoppages and five safety cars, but Hamilton remained calm to take the victory and became the first driver to triumph at 24 different F1 circuits, keeping his championship hopes alive. After each restart, Hamilton cruised easily away from his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg who finished second. Rosberg will secure the F1 World Championship title if he finishes third in Abu Dhabi even if Hamilton wins. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will take place from 25-27 November. Can Lewis reign superior?
