The mother will be happy
Although he did not like it, Hamilton was happy to celebrate with Ricciardo. “The positive is that Daniel’s mother thinks I am a good athlete, so I am grateful for that. I think you have remembered that I once said that I was never going to do it. So there is a lesson here: Never say never. But it was a good time, “said the championship leader.
A rare 2020
