Lewis Hamilton became Formula 1’s second ever six time champion.


With his second place finish in the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas, the 19th of 21 race on the 2019 Formula 1 schedule, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport’s Lewis Hamilton became Formula 1’s second ever six time champion.

Not since Michael Schumacher, who retired as a seven-time champion, won his sixth championship in the 2003 season had a driver been crowned for a sixth time.

When Schumacher won his sixth title, it was to break a tie atop the all-time titles list with five-time champion Juan Manuel Fangio. With Hamilton winning his sixth, he has broken a tie for second place with Fangio behind only Schumacher.
