Hamilton needs to win

The victory has escaped him, in the last five great prizes he could only finish in Russia, unsatisfactory balance for an insatiable driver of triumphs.


Lewis Hamilton was very angry at the end of the Japanese GP. He had climbed the podium and, above all, taken another valuable step towards his sixth world title, but his disappointment was evident. And understandable. Again he had escaped the victory of a race, in the last five great prizes he could only finish in Russia's previous one, unsatisfactory balance for an insatiable driver of triumphs. Especially when at a certain time of the season he came to link four consecutive wins and it seemed that the World Cup would be a triumphant ride, which would allow him to finish his goal earlier than it is happening. Nor did it help much to see him happy to be unable to beat the Ferrari of Vettel in the final stages of Suzuka.

Only a catastrophe would take Hamilton away from that F1 title, but now that his only rival with mathematical options is his teammate Bottas. The advantage is so great that he could dedicate the remaining four appointments to contemplate waiting for the new crown to fall by its own weight, although it is clearly not going to be that way. A champion always wants to be demonstrating it with arguments and his run since summer is not the dream. Hence his disgust on the Japanese podium, enough to prevent him from even enjoying a new title of builders for Mercedes (ugly, by the way, that attitude on an important day for his team). So we just have to wait for a blunt reaction from English, any other scenario would be a major surprise.
