After his stunning victory at Monza, Lewis was asked if it feels like one of his greatest ever victories. What does he think?
"Under the sheer pressure we are under, I definitely will consider it to be quite far up there," he said.
"Obviously to do it on Ferrari's home turf as well and so much pressure on the team... with the performance that they have, to really be able to pull a little bit more out of the bag, and really make it stick...
"I generally think this year I've been quite consistent in my delivery. I really have been happy with what I've been able to extract from the car and again, just incredibly grateful and proud of the team for continuing to keep their faith in me and keep pushing as they are.
"Days like this, it'll be amazing to go back and see the guys, we'll have a team photo to celebrate and that is a very, very proud moment to be a part of that.
"There are so many people in these teams now, it's incredible. And there's not one single person or component that's more important than another. It's been great teamwork."
This season is proving to be one of the most intense in recent times, how is Lewis handling that?
"The heat is there, the intensity is there," the Brit explained. "It's unavoidable for me and him [Sebastian]. It's very difficult for people watching to feel what we feel.
"The pressure is...I don't even know what word to use for it. It's the highest I can ever remember.
"That's the pressure you put on yourself because you want to succeed, it's the pressure of your desires and fears, and of all the people who are depending on you, which is a lot of people."
