WATCH: Anthony Hamilton's touching tribute to son Lewis, as he wins 7th world title

Lewis Hamilton's father Anthony narrates a tribute to his son as he wins a seventh Formula 1 World Championship, equalling the record of Michael Schumacher in the process.

Anthony played a key part in Hamilton's rise to success, working multiple jobs to fund Lewis's karting career before helping manage his son through the lower ranks of single-seater racing and up into F1.

Speaking about his family after clinching the title with his 94th race win in Istanbul, Lewis said: "We dreamed of this when I was young, when we were watching the Grands Prix, and this is way, way beyond our dreams."
