While one title is now secured, there's still another to win. "I still have work to do," said Lewis. "I've still got to get back to the factory and rally the troops next week to figure out how we can come back and win these next races.
"We still have the Constructors' Championship to win, which I know will mean even more to all the guys back at the factory. So that's the focus."
Over the course of the season, we've had to overcome a number of obstacles: "Even on weekends where we didn't have the package and we were on the back foot, we'd come away with wins, even though we weren't the quickest.
"It took some special laps, it took some special moments in the car, and I honestly could just relive those moments all the time. Some of those experiences I had in the car were really magical.
"I truly believed that we could win this Championship, but it has been the toughest battle that we've had collectively as a team.
"So much work has gone on in the background. These guys in the garage have just been flawless every single weekend, with our pit stops, with our decision-making, strategy and set-up. That's been the key.
"I feel I can take the car to places that nobody else can. But to do that, you have to get the car in the right place and so that means, ultimately, you've got to work with the team, to help unleash what's great within them so that you can unleash the greatness in yourself."
