Lewis Hamilton has broken Michael Schumacher’s record for number of Grand Prix wins, winning for the 92nd time. He now holds a number of all time Formula One records from most pole positions (97) to most podiums (161) to longest distance driven whilst in the lead of a Grand Prix race 25,259km (among many others).
It’s impossible to compare drivers across generations given the differences in machines, rules, safety etc but Hamilton is surely up there with the greatest of all time. Certainly he’s the greatest driver of his generation.
It’s practically inevitable he’ll equal Schumacher’s record of 7 world championships this season and he’ll start as strong favourite to break that next year.
