Lewis Hamilton describes what made the 2021 British Grand Prix “a monumentous kind of event for us and so important”.

Lewis Hamilton has won the 2021 British Grand Prix in spectacular fashion, and the celebration that followed in front of his home crowd was equally as spectacular.

Having won at Silverstone eight times, Lewis was asked how special this particular win feels.

“They are all so unique and incredible, each experience on its own,” the Briton said.

“I can’t even compare it to the others. It’s been a really unbelievable journey with the British crowd here, my home crowd, since 2006 in GP2.

“The roar that I experienced in 2007 for my first pole here was something I will never forget and of course my first win here was incredibly special.

“But to come here again and be in such a close battle, there was so much riding on this race. The will to succeed for the crowd…

“It’s different when we go to these other races, you want to do it for your team and that, but here you know so many people, and particularly this one because no one has been able to leave their homes for such a long time, so everything compounded has made this a monumentous kind of event for us and so important.

“It was a real honour to be able to wave the Union Jack and to go round the circuit. I’m very grateful and very humbled,” concluded the seven-time champion.
