Over 50,000 fans attended the event in Stuttgart which also featured appearances by former racers Stirling Moss, Jochen Mass, Hans Hermann, DTM racers Gary Paffett, Daniel Juncadella and Christian Vietoris, Macau Grand Prix winner Felix Rosenqvist, and newly-confirmed Williams test driver Susie Wolff.
“The reception from the fans here in Stuttgart was absolutely indescribable,” said Hamilton. “I celebrated my first world title with spectators here at Stars and Cars back in 2008, but this year, they have topped even my expectations.”
“Winning this title was the best moment of my life,” he added. “The team turned in an extraordinary performance, for which I would like to thank all my colleagues in the factories at Brackley, Brixworth and here in Stuttgart. Our progress since last year has been absolutely phenomenal.”
