Lewis Hamilton insisted he had no time to celebrate back-to-back wins as he stormed to victory at the Qatar Grand Prix to move eight points behind title rival Max Verstappen.
The race took place amid questions about the state’s poor human rights history and put a focus on its apparent attempt to use sport to portray a more progressive future.
Hamilton only added to the controversy, wearing a rainbow helmet in support of the LBGTQ+ community and sparking criticism from the Qatar World Cup chief executive before the race even began.
He then stormed on to win the race, and create the most enthralling F1 title fight in years.
