The star Lewis Hamilton won the Russian Grand Prix to become the first F1 driver to reach a century of victories.
Hamilton’s victory came after a dramatic final that saw MacLaren’s Lando Norris surrender a lead late in Sochi.
Red Bull’s Max Verstappen came in second, while Norris secured the third position after coming short within two laps of winning the Russian Grand Prix.
The seven-time world champion said that even though it took him so long to reach 100 victories and wasn’t sure it was going to come, it was a dream come true It is a magical moment.
“I could only have dreamed of still being here, to have this opportunity to win these races and to drive with such phenomenal talents this late on in my career. I am so proud of everything we have done.
“This is a special moment for everyone who has been part of it. I feel incredibly grateful for the support I have had,” Hamilton said.
The Mercedes Benz driver’s record is followed by Michael Schumacher, who won 91 in 2006, with Sebastian Vettel sitting on 53.
