Social roundup: First wave of congrats for Hamilton’s 4th world title


Although Lewis Hamilton’s title-clinching drive in today’s Mexican Grand Prix wasn’t done in the traditional sense – he ended ninth and needed a race-long recovery from first lap contact – he’s still entered Formula 1’s four-time World Champion club as a result of the day.

Hamilton is the fifth driver in F1 history to hit that milestone, joining all-time leader Michael Schumacher (seven), Juan Manuel Fangio (five), Alain Prost and Sebastian Vettel (four apiece) in that club.

The racing world has begun to extend its congratulations to Hamilton. You can see the roundup below, with some big names and teams weighing in on the accomplishment.
