Hamilton is now on course to break the record having age on his side and a dominant career to go with it, having secured five wins now in six seasons. He has said he doesn’t know when he will stop, but as an athlete, he feels as fresh as he can be right now.

Hamilton became the youngest Formula 1 winner in 2008 when he drove for McLaren.
