Lewis Hamilton has opened up on the season finale of the 2021 Formula 1 season and claimed that he was ‘obviously’ robbed of a record eighth title.
Making his debut in the sport with McLaren in 2007, Hamilton is statistically the most successful driver in history, having recorded the most pole positions (104), race wins (103) and podium finishes (197).
