The Mercedes spearhead was a lap away from winning the eighth world championship, which would have made him the most successful driver ever. However, on that particular day, fate wasn’t on the Brit’s side. Eventually, it was Max Verstappen who won the race in questionable circumstances. It was this that led Hamilton to keep his lips sealed for the following two months.
