|Hamilton Powers To Victory In Japanese Grand Prix. Equals Ayrton Senna's Record by Jidefido(m): 8:56am On Sep 28, 2015|
World champion Lewis Hamilton moved level with Ayrton Senna on 41 GP victories and is now 48 points clear in the drivers’ championship with five races remaining
Lewis Hamilton won the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday to equal the late Ayrton Senna’s tally of 41 Formula One victories and move 48 points clear of Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg with five races remaining.
Rosberg took the chequered flag 18.9 seconds behind Hamilton with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, the winner in Singapore, finishing third in an exact repeat of last year’s top three at Suzuka.
Hamilton now has 277 points to Rosberg’s 229 with Vettel dropping back on 218 but refusing to give up his championship hopes until mathematically ruled out.
“It’s not done until it’s done. So, the chance is there — and what kind of racing driver would I be if I stopped believing?,” said the German.
“You have to keep believing otherwise I guess it’s pointless rocking up and trying to fight.”
Mercedes, who have now won 11 of 14 races, moved a step closer to retaining their constructors’ title with 506 points to Ferrari’s 337.
