As well as reaching his best form yet on track, Lewis Hamilton has taken strides in his off-track approach of late. It's well known that Nico Rosberg's departure played a part, but there was another unexpected turning point too.
You may choose to criticise Lewis Hamilton for his off-track lifestyle. You could troll him for his (now erased) social media antics. Or you might question some of his fashion choices. But if there is one area where you would really struggle to knock him, it's for what he achieves on track.
Hamilton's charge to the 2017 Formula 1 championship, which was sealed as Sebastian Vettel's title challenge fell apart in Asia, was perhaps his most complete season in grand prix racing so far.
