It was Hamilton’s 65th Formula 1 pole position, and he was awarded one of Aryton Senna’s racing helmets for matching the Brazilian legend’s record for pole positions.
“I am shaking,” Hamilton said. “Ayrton is the one who inspired me to be where I am. To match him and receive this is the greatest honor.
