Now that Lewis Hamilton's car reliability problems have diminished, he has been on fire in the last 2 races in USA and, Mexico. He had never won in Brazil, so could he stamp his authority over Rosberg and clinch the victory.? Read on to find out.

Lewis Hamilton Realises his Brazilian Dream

Ever since Lewis Hamilton's car reliability problems have eased, he seems to have a new steely determination about him, that makes him appear to be unbeatable. Although probably too late in the season to clinch the championship, his strong qualifying in pole position both in the USA and Mexico, and subsequent emphatic race wins have shown just what stern stuff he is made of when facing an almost impossible task.

Because of engine failures and a retirement, he has watched his nineteen points advantage over Rosberg plummet until Lewis was thirty three points behind with only four races left to score points. All Rosberg had to do to win the title was to get three second places and one third.

But seemingly unaffected by this statistic, after dominating the last two grand prixs, he went to Brazil, a place he had never won before, and a favourite of Rosberg's, with a strong determination to put that right.

Ayrton Senna was his hero

Lewis attributes the racing legend Ayrton Senna as his inspiration in becoming a world champion . He has always wanted to be like him, and has so far equalled his tally of three world championships. But Brazil was his idol's home ground, and although many people, especially the Press, favoured Rosberg to win, it seemed Lewis was having none of it.

He qualified one tenth faster than Rosberg to take pole position, and when interviewed afterwards, his demeanour was one of a very determined person. He was unfazed by the weather forecast for race day, with heavy rain forecast, he has always been master in the rain. Rosberg however, greeted the news with much trepidation, as he does not drive well in the rain, as was proved earlier this year in Monaco, when he slipped down to seventh place during the race.

With Verstappen and Ricciardo, their nearest rivals, if they could keep Rosberg down in fourth, providing Lewis won the last two races, he would still have a chance of winning the championship. As a fan I , along with many others wanted to see this happen, as Rosberg has had such an advantage this year with a bullet proof car, whilst Lewis has struggled with so many car problems

On Race Day

The weather was at its worst, it had rained all day, and it was decided to start the race from behind the safety car Lewis led off in spectacular style, his pace was much faster than anyone's, and Rosberg really struggled to stay with him. It wasn't long before Rosberg was overtaken by Verstappen, which was looking good for Lewis's championship bid, but soon after that, unfortunately, his team called him in for a pit stop, and he lost the place.

Max did a brilliant job of fighting his way back to third place, audaciously overtaking his team mate Ricciardo, who was no match for him at all, but the pit stop had ruined his chance to get back to second place again.

Lewis continued to lead the race, and was never under threat from anyone at any time. He was the only driver not to make any mistakes or have a wheel spin, he was completely in charge of the car, and said afterwards how much he had enjoyed the challenging conditions.

Although at one time over thirty seconds behind his team mate, Rosberg kept second place, so now only has to get third place at the last race to clinch the championship. But I somehow think the bravery of Lewis so in control of this race, and also of young[ Max, fighting his way through, will be remembered as the highlight of this year.

Rosberg is only going to win this championship because for several races Lewis was not able to compete against him. Furthermore, if Lewis carries this determination to the last race, he will have more pole ;positions and more wins than Rosberg, but points don't lie, and Rosberg will have the most.

But this year, against all the odds, Lewis has broken records continually. He is second only to Schumaker in winning the most races. His poles have broken records at three venues, he has also been the only driver ever to win at all venues, twenty four in total, and the only driver ever to win at least one race in every season of his career. He may not win the drivers title this year, through no fault of his own, but these records and more will ensure that he goes down in history as the great icon and driver that he truly is.
