The Mercedes driver easily won the Hungarian Grand Prix, beating Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel into second place. Hamilton also praised Bottas for his selfless driving during the race, when he had to cover the threat of Kimi Raikkonen in the second Ferrari, whose early pit-stop, forced Mercedes to follow suit.
There is still plenty of work to do if he is to break that streak, even if Hamilton is well ahead of where he was this time previous year when he went into the August shutdown 14 points adrift of Vettel.
Daniel Ricciardo meanwhile finished just outside the podium on Sunday (local time), although he was named driver of the day after surging from 12th spot on the grid to finish in fourth, recording the fastest lap of the race in the process.
Then, after he'd cooled down, Bottas backtracked on his earlier remarks, saying on social media he in fact wouldn't seek a meeting with his boss over being labelled a "wingman". But I was next to him on the inside. "I am really, really happy to be going into the break with back-to-back wins, and that boost will last a long time for our team, and that is encouraging for everyone". "I don't believe there is ever a moment you have got your hands on the trophy..."
Lap 37 - Hamilton is starting to gain ground on Vettel, whos advantange is down to under 10 seconds.

Actually, add animals to the latter since a Colombian drug gang has reportedly put a bounty of $70,000 on a drug detecting canine. But even with advanced technology, experts say on-the-ground detective work like that performed by Sombra is critical.
Wolff spoke after Bottas's interview and tried to clarify what he said in reaction to the race. I think which way you look at it depends if it's good or bad. So marginal that any problem in the pit stop would cost Vettel position. "I think we had very good speed but obviously what happened yesterday and after the start, we never really were able to use our speed when we were on our own, catching-up".
Lewis Hamilton took a commanding, lights-to-flag victory at the Hungaroring to further extend his championship lead.
"In today's race, starting P2, after lap one, Valtteri's race was the ideal wingman race - and I don't mean it in championship terms, because we have no No. 1, we have no number two, but it was just how he was racing". Red Bull team principal Christian Horner blamed the Renault engine as being substandard.
"Looking back at the race, Lewis' stint in the first part with the ultra showed the ultra was a lot stronger than on Friday and what we expected". He collided with Vettel at Turn 2, suffering damage to the front left wing. Even with 20 laps to go, he felt comfortable and in control.
"P2 is not really what we wanted this weekend but I think it was the maximum today". "What matters to me is that we are constantly developing, and we are". I know what he ment (sic).
