F1: Lewis Hamilton Wins Portuguese Grand Prix, Secures 97th Career Race Victory

British World racing champion Lewis Hamilton has shown his class, winning the Portuguese Formula One Grand Prix from Max Verstappen and extending his lead in the title race.

Hamilton had slipped to third after a Safety Car restart happened when Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Raikkonen collided with Antonio Giovinazzi’s left rear wheel on lap seven.
But Hamilton eventually overtook Verstappen on lap 11, eventually racing past Bottas, who had started in pole, for the lead nine laps later.

Once he had pulled ahead at the Algarve International Circuit, Hamilton never looked back, winning by a comfortable 29.148-second margin.
The victory for Hamilton is his second of the season and puts him eight points ahead of Red Bull’s Verstappen in the title standings.
“That was such a tough race physically and mentally,” Hamilton told reporters after the race. “Today wasn’t all perfect so we’ll look at those areas and turn over the stones.”

The seven-time world champion will look to extend his lead in the title standings at the Spanish Grand Prix on May 9.
