Seven titles for Mercedes "something to tell my grandchildren one day" - Hamilton
Lewis Hamilton revealed Mercedes' achievement of winning seven consecutive constructors' championships was "overwhelming" and said he would be "forever grateful" for the effort put in by the Brackley and Brixworth-based team.
Hamilton led home team-mate Valtteri Bottas for a Mercedes one-two to wrap up the title with four races still to run, with Max Verstappen's retirement marking the end of Red Bull's faint challenge.
After initially making a poor start and dropping behind Verstappen to third, Hamilton extended his first stint and profited from a virtual safety car - deployed to recover Esteban Ocon's stricken Renault.
The championship leader, who conceded it was "an exhausting race", lay testament to the work his team had done over the last seven years.
"It is just really overwhelming right now," he said. "I just look at my crew and I know all the men and women back at the factory in Brackley and Brixworth who are the unsung heroes.
