A clearly emotional Hamilton paid tribute to his team immediately following the race, and said that the record-equaling win is the culmination of a lifelong dream.
“I have to always start with saying such a huge thanks you to all the guys that are here and all the guys that in the factory,” Hamilton said.
“I wanna also say a big big thank you to Team LH for sticking with me all these years, and to my family.
