Lewis Hamilton moved degree with Michael Schumacher’s file of 91 Formulation One wins with victory on the Eifel Grand Prix.
Hamilton gained comfortably after Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas suffered a race-ending engine problem. The win will increase Hamilton’s result in 69 factors within the championship.
It means he’s one win away from being the all-time chief in race victories.
By the use of comparability, Hamilton reached his present tally on his 261st F1 race begin. Schumacher reached the 91-win mark at his 247th begin, the 2006 Chinese language Grand Prix.
The pair are comfortably away from the subsequent drivers within the file books. After Hamilton and Schumacher, the subsequent drivers on the all-time winners checklist are Sebastian Vettel (53), Alain Prost (51), Ayrton Senna (41), Fernando Alonso (32), Nigel Mansell (31), Jackie Stewart (27), Jim Clark, Niki Lauda (each 25) and Juan Manuel Fangio (24).
Hamilton can be on the right track to assert a seventh world championship this season, which might transfer him degree with the one remaining vital file in Schumacher’s title.
