It's been a challenging season so far, but Lewis thinks he is driving at his very best - especially in the races that followed the triple-header.
"I feel like I have driven my hardest throughout the year I feel I have conducted myself in the right way," he said. "This has been the best performing year of my career so far.
"As the year progresses, you really have no idea what is going to happen. Of course, you have hope, and you hope you can figure your way out and improve.
"Most years, you get better and better through the year, but definitely the last six races or so... I definitely didn't know I was going to improve the way I have.
"But, it definitely was needed because Ferrari took a big step in Spa and we came with a big step. Naturally, as I continue to say, the communication with the team, my engineers, gets better and better through the year, with the strategist gets better and better through the year.
"But, mostly it is your understanding of the car, your comfort in exploiting it gets stronger, but I am really, really happy as I look back at a lot of these races.
"I could not have hoped for better performances. When I look back there have been some real dream experiences for me - races I dreamed of having and performing at those levels.
"That is what I live for. You don't always get to experience what your target is, I am just grateful for the races I have had and how a lot of them have panned out."
