92 seiere i F1 Grand Prix: Historiske Lewis Hamilton

Oct 272020

Gamechanger. Under F1 Grand Prix i Portugal ble motorsportverden vitne til noe helt utrolig.

Lewis Hamilton som allerede er verdensmester seks ganger, vant sitt 92. løp i Formel 1 Grand Prix. Dette gjør han til den mest vellykkede i Formel 1når det gjelder direkte seiersvinn.

Å slå rekorder har blitt et varemerke under Lewis sin meteoriske F1-karriere, men dette er virkelig den store, la oss ta et øyeblikk for å få det gele inn. Men først noen ord fra selveste LH44.  «First, I owe these 92 wins to the team here and back and the factory for their tremendous work. They are continuously innovating and pushing the barrier, even higher every year. It's been such a privilege working with them and I am so grateful for all the moments. The reliability has been incredible thanks to the Mercedes team, PETRONAS and all our partners who are continuously pushing. No one is sitting back on the success, everyone is pushing and pushing and pushing. That's the most incredible thing to be surrounded by: it inspires you, that collaboration, and there's nothing quite like it,.»  forklarer Lewis.

«I could only ever have dreamed of being where I am today. I didn't have a crystal ball when I chose to come to this team and partner with these great people. What I can tell you is that I am trying to make the most of it every single day. Everything that we do together, we are all rowing in the same direction and that's why you're seeing the success that we're having. My dad is here which is amazing, my step-mum Linda is here, Roscoe too. I feel very blessed. It's going to take some time for it to sink in. I was still pushing flat out coming across the line and I am still in race mode mentally. I can't find the words at the moment..»

Men det stopper ikke der heller. Foreløpig har Lewis 37 individuelle rekordseiere, pallplasseringer, poeng og podier; 92 seiere i F1 Grand Prix må være høydepunktet så langt. 


Lagleder & CEO for Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1-lag, Toto Wolff sa: 92 seire, hvem hadde trodd det da vi startet i 2013? Det er nesten et surrealistisk antall seire. Det er full lidenskap, energi og alt som Lewis legger i det. Talentet og evnen skiller seg ut.


«There is a lot of reflection, a lot of learning, understanding the tyres for the race, and he was just sitting comfortably at the beginning during opening laps, then he just ramped it up and then had unbelievable pace. It's been a very good day. I'm not sure how I'm going to celebrate because we are living like hermits at the moment, but I am flying to see my wife and my son today, and I'm sure we will have a dinner with maybe a few drinks.»

Monster Energy styreleder og admistrerende direktør Rodney Sacks konkluderer: «It takes exceptional talent to achieve exceptional results, and it is extremely rare that an athlete dominates the field like Lewis Hamilton in Formula 1. »


«By winning the most Grand Prix in F1 history, you have exhibited unparalleled levels of courage, conviction and passion. Lewis, the entire Monster Energy family congratulates you on this phenomenal milestone. »
