Lewis Hamilton Wins British Grand Prix, Breaks Down in Tears

Lewis Hamilton celebrates winning his 9th British Grand Prix Win


  • Lewis Hamilton won the British Grand Prix on July 7.
  • It was the Brit’s first victory since December 2012 when he won Saudi Arabia.
  • Hamilton’s 104th F1 World Championship victory moved him to tears.

On July 7, Lewis Hamilton won the British Grand Prix, marking his first victory since December 2021 when he won the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix ahead of Red Bull‘s Max Verstappen which most gambling sites offering odds to UK Players would not have predicted.

His win in Saudi Arabia was also his last pole position until the 2023 Hungarian Grand Prix.

His Sunday victory represents the Mercedes driver’s 104th victory in the Formula 1 World Championship, unleashing built-up emotions in the 39-year-old.

“I Can Not Stop Crying.”

Speaking at the end of the race where he was acclaimed by a massive Silverstone crowd of 164,000, Hamilton, who annihilated expectations with one of the best rookie performances in the history of F1 2007, wasn’t shy to admit he wondered whether he will ever go back to his winning times or whether he was still “good enough”.

The driver also acknowledged the numerous “thoughts and doubts” in his mind “to the point, at times, I wanted to not continue”.

I can not stop crying”, Hamilton said after the race.

Since 2021, every day getting up trying to fight, to train, to put my mind to the task

The driver, who has the words “Still I Rise” tattooed across his shoulders and emblazoned across the back of his helmet, also wanted to thank their fans “who have been with us on every tour”.

“There’s No Greater Feeling Than to Finish at the Front Here.”

To arrive and continue to get up and continue to try and finally succeed is the greatest feeling I can remember having. There’s no greater feeling than to finish at the front here.

An emotional and reflective Lewis Hamilton used his own “tough” experience to advise everyone to “continue to dig deep” even when they feel they are “at the bottom of the barrel“.

Hamilton, who announced his decision to keep competing in F1 until at least the end of 2026 after inking a surprising, blockbuster agreement with Ferrari, received a Union Jack flag from a marshal on his slow-down lap at the end of his Sunday race.

He used the flag to celebrate in front of the Silverstone crowd and also took the opportunity to share embraces with mother Carmen and father Anthony, who were both at Silverstone.

It’s my last race here with this team, that’s why I wanted to win so much. I appreciate them enormously and I will always be grateful
