YEARS AND YEARS BRITISH VICTORIES
Lewis: “I remember the first Grand Prix I won here in 2008. Since I failed in 2007, I showed great determination in 2008 to win the championship to England. Fortunately, it rained on Sunday. My brother came to my room and said, 'Don't worry. You can do it. I remember saying it is raining, you will succeed '. It was a very pleasant moment, it increased my courage. I entered the race with this feeling and made the best start. ”
Lewis: “At 2014, I was dreaming of entering the races in a car that I could fight for the world championship. Actually, I was having a bad elimination. I went home to spend the night with my father, my stepmother and my brother. I was in my room, with my dogs and my father. Being with my family was a feeling that really boosted my morale when I really needed it. After a good home-cooked meal, I raced the next day and got the dust off the track. ”
Lewis: “This period was also unforgettable. All the tickets were sold out. At the beginning of the race, we overtaken, fell to third place. I went ahead and struggled with great difficulties. Rain clouds were approaching. The UK air made it clear to me. So I changed the tires. Finally, we made the right decision by switching to mid-range tires at the right time. After that, I had a smooth race and won the 10 second margin. ”
Lewis: “The best part of this Grand Prix was to mingle with our audience. I don't know where it came to my mind. But I think after I won the race, I got out of the car and went to the pilots' room behind the podium. But I suddenly stopped and said, 'I have to go downstairs and see the crowd.' I ran back and saw the crowd. I went up to the barrier and tried to wave everybody. It was the coolest thing that ever happened to me. ”
Lewis: “It was a really great year with an amazing car, much faster. We won the pole position by capturing the success of some legends like Jim Clark. That was wonderful. It was a solid weekend. When I was practicing, qualifying, competing, I was the fastest. Each round was first and fastest again. We had great moments with the fans. I feel that we are getting more and more integrated with them every year. ”
Lewis: “This was one of the best days I remember. I was thinking of my first victory in 2008. Excitement, happiness and joy were exactly the same this year. I raced too much. You may think you will get used to it, but it does not. It was as great as my first win here. Man feels amazing. I'm not someone who looks at statistics. Each race was a separate event for me. But it is a great feeling to think that I won six races and became one of the legends. ”
