#4 Hamilton Risks Title for Bottas- Hungary GP 2017

In 2017 at Hungary Grand Prix, what the world of Formula One witnessed was no less than an act of sacrifice and pure sportsmanship. Ferraris of Raikkonen and Vettel were leading the race until the latter had steering issues. It allowed Lewis Hamilton to pass them but the nature of Hungaroring circuit is quite typical, which makes it all the more difficult for the driver to maintain a lead. Mercedes had already made clear to Bottas to make way for Hamilton and he was given a 5-lap window to get the job done

Bottas followed the same and allowed the teammate to pass but what came up next was no less than a surprise to all of us. Hamilton slowed up and relaxed, deliberately allowing Bottas to catch up and finally on the last corner of the final lap, Hamilton let Bottas take P3 and resisted himself. Spectators had an idea that Hamilton won't risk his title for the teammate but this act made all the critics tight-lipped about the matter.
