(CNN)Lewis Hamilton may be Formula One's most successful driver but after securing a record-equaling seventh world title on Sunday the Briton said he still had plenty left to achieve -- namely making his sport and the world "more diverse and inclusive. "

A brilliant drive during a rain-soaked Turkish Grand Prix ensured Hamilton not only won the race -- for a record-extending 94th Grand Prix victory -- but also equaled Michael Schumacher's tally of seven world titles, the one remaining record of the German great that the Englishman has not yet surpassed.

No driver in the sport's history has won as many races, secured as many pole positions or finished on the podium as many times as Hamilton.

F1's first and only Black world champion in its 70-year history, this year he became one of sport's leading voices in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

No one has come close to challenging the world champion during this truncated season and he secured the title with three races still remaining, having won four races in a row and 10 of 14 races so far this year.
