The victory marks Hamilton’s fourth at Singapore, now placing him alongside Vettel wit the most wins in the city.

“Despite the Mercedes not being suited to the circuit they have now won here four out of five times in the turbo-hybrid era,” the Guardian reports. “It was this sequence of races last season that proved crucial in securing his fourth title and he has placed himself on the front foot to once again close out the championship.” The victory is Hamilton’s  7th of the season and 69th career.

An athlete at his peak, Hamilton has also credited his recent shift to a vegan diet for improving his performance, reducing recovery time, and making him feel healthier than ever before. The Brit has become outspoken about his enthusiasm for the vegan diet, posting on social media about the benefits and even encouraging his followers to consider the implications of a meat-heavy diet.

Six Grand Prix races remain including Russia, Japan, U.S., Mexico, Brazil, and Abu Dhabi. Hamilton’s victory at Singapore positions him toward the likely World Championship victory barring any major injuries or upsets at the remaining courses.
