Ross Brawn praised Lewis Hamilton in his space on the official F1 website. He said: "I think Red Bull did well to tell Verstappen to return the position to Hamilton, after being off the track to overtake him. After the race Max was pissed off but he will soon have a chance to make up for it.
If he succeeded with that infraction. to build enough headroom to win the race would have been a bitter-tasting success. And we don't want things like that to happen. The Bahrain Grand Prix was all about strategy and track position advantage.
And Mercedes was right to go for a more aggressive strategy, giving up on responding immediately. I can only think that Red Bull were convinced that Mercedes would make three stops. Both deserved the win but ultimately Lewis didn't do anything wrong.
and he won a fantastic race, one that is won with the slightest advantage. Max was a bit worn out at the end ability to follow him closely and launch one attack after another because the tires would overheat. This is a problem that we will try to solve for 2022: from this point of view the future is bright."
Hamilton on the human rights
"Human rights? I try to educate myself on what is happening in the world. It certainly gave me great responsibility. do not remain silent as someone might want me to do. Kneeling was good for letting the black community know that I'm on his side.
It's nice to see the steps of this sport and of my team in the direction of inclusion. When young people look at us, they may ask their parents why we kneel, and this can lead to dialogue. I'm not the one to choose where we're going to run, but I try to take steps to understand the situation.
We visit many countries, there are problems all over the world, but we must not go to these countries ignoring what is happening. We can't get here, have fun and then leave," said the Briton in press conference before the GP.
Hamilton is considered one of the greatest drivers of all time and, together with Michael Schumacher, the most successful champion in the history of Formula 1. He has won 7 world titles: in 2008 with McLaren and in 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018 , 2019 and 2020 with Mercedes.

It stands out for its very aggressive driving style, for its speed in qualifying and for its solidity in the race as well as for its dexterity in the wet, characteristics that make it a complete and very difficult driver for rivals.
Since his debut in the top category, Hamilton has won at least one race and one pole position during the world championship, making him the only driver in the history of the highest formula to have succeeded from the first season for fourteen consecutive years.
With seven world titles he is the most successful Briton of all time, as well as the only Anglo-Saxon to have managed to triumph for four consecutive editions (in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020).
