Hamilton wishing season wasn't ending after '2019-best' Abu Dhabi victory


In the past, Lewis Hamilton has been accused of taking his foot off the gas after he’s won the title – but this year has been different and in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, he had the bit between his teeth, securing one of his most dominant victories of 2019 and admitting he would love to “keep going” this season…

This was one of Hamilton’s great seasons, the Briton rebounding from a slightly off-colour start to the campaign to rattle off 11 wins – the final one coming in Abu Dhabi in what was his 250th Grand Prix and 73rd triumph this decade.

Eleven wins in a year equals his previous best, but his final points tally of 413 is his highest-ever single-season points total, while he also equals his record of 33 consecutive points finishes. And it all came after a lacklustre start to the Yas Island weekend where he struggled to find a rhythm.
