By:

His place in the history books was secure even before that record-equalling seventh title. But Hamilton's numbers can create a misleading perception of a driver who has contributed greatly to the Mercedes juggernaut, as an ex-colleague explains.

The stunning drive to victory that helped Lewis Hamilton clinch his seventh world title in Turkey last weekend was out of the top drawer.

On an afternoon that had started with few considering Hamilton as a contender for victory - while even fewer did when he found himself a pit-stop behind early race leader Lance Stroll - the Briton showed all his driving brilliance and fantastic tyre management skills to pull off a memorable 94th win.
