Lewis Hamilton finally got his sweet redemption at the British Grand Prix on Sunday, storming back to the top of the podium after two years, seven months, and two days.

In a spectacular win, Hamilton broke the record for victories at a single track, all in front of a roaring home crowd and his loving family.

With the victory, Hamilton also won his ninth race at Silverstone becoming the leader in most races won at a single Formula 1 track in history.

“I can’t stop crying,” the Brit admitted as he stepped out of his car. “That might be the most emotional ending to a race I think I have ever had.”

Hamilton’s last win was at the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in a nail-biting battle with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. Just a week later, in Abu Dhabi, his chance for an eighth title was snatched away by race director Michael Masi’s controversial decision.

Over the winter, Hamilton thought about quitting the sport. He said:

“There have definitely been moments between 2021 and here when I didn’t feel like I was good enough, or I thought it was never going to happen again. I have never cried coming from a win. It just came out of me. It is a really great feeling and I am really grateful for it.”

Britain’s Number 1 added:

“Honestly, when I came back in 2022, I thought that I was over it… and it’s taken a long time to heal that kind of feeling. That’s only natural for anyone that has that experience. I’ve just been continuing to try and work on myself and find that inner peace day by day.”

Hamilton added winning at Silverstone was emotional for many reasons. It wasn’t just the end of a long drought; it was his home grand prix, with fans cheering him on even against fellow Brit Lando Norris. He called Silverstone the “best track in the world.”
