Lewis Hamilton was all smiles as he raced over the finish line in first place at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday (13 November). The British racing legend did his renowned foot shuffle on his car shortly after finishing the race to show his excitement.
The McLaren driver later dedicated the win to his mum, who was at the race and was celebrating her birthday. He said it was “one of my best races. I said that to myself as I slowed down. I’m ecstatic, very happy to be back up here. I can get on my flight tonight and smile!”
During the 55-lap race, Sebastian Vettel, spun out on the second corner at the beginning of the race, after his tyre burst.
