Lewis Hamilton Mural Unveiled at Silverstone, UK

Lewis Hamilton showcased his undoubted ability with yet another dominant season to seal a remarkable sixth Formula One world championship.

The British superstar, 34, romped to 11 victories in the 21-race campaign to make light work of his rivals and further strengthen his standing as one of the all-time F1 greats.

Indeed, Hamilton capped off a fine year by winning the season-closing Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday as he secured the 84th win of his career and moved to within seven of Michael Schumacher’s all-time record.

The 11 wins in a season matched his personal best for a campaign, achieved in 2014 and 2018, with a record points haul of 413.

And to celebrate his stunning achievements, a mural has been unveiled at Silverstone, the home of the British Grand Prix.

Sky Sports F1 – the home of live and exclusive F1 – hired artist James Cochran , who also created the famous David Bowie mural in Brixton – to design the piece to celebrate Hamilton’s latest title crown.

The impressive-looking painting displays Hamilton in his Mercedes gear, with the Union Jack acting as a stunning backdrop.

The mural has been emblazoned on a section of a wall at the world-famous Silverstone circuit, a track which has seen Hamilton triumph a record six times.

After clinching his win in Abu Dhabi last Sunday, Hamilton said: “What a way to end the season!

“I’m just so grateful for everyone’s continued hard work and dedication this year, we continue to raise the bar together.

“The support has been unbelievable, I’m completely overwhelmed, so a big, big thank you to everyone at the track but also back home who supports me.

“This has probably been the biggest year of growth for us as a team, so I hope that that will put us in a good position for a new challenge next year.

“I feel fresh and just ready to keep going and I’m looking forward to another challenge next year.”
