Portuguese Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton overtakes Michael Schumacher in F1 Grand Prix wins


History has once again been made in the world of Formula One, and once again it's been made by Mercedes superstar Lewis Hamilton.

After equalling Michael Schumacher's record for most Grand Prix wins at the Eifel Grand Prix on October 11, the British racing driver has now gone one better and overtaken the German as he now sits alone on 92 victories.


There are some records in sport that you just never expect to be broken, and it's safe to say not many would have expected Schumacher to lose this record... but then again, it's not every day an athlete like Lewis Hamilton arrives on the scene.

From making his debut in the sport way back in 2007 with McLaren, to securing yet another chequered flag this weekend in Portugal, Hamilton has proven yet again just how much of a superstar he is.

It didn't take Hamilton long to secure his maiden win in Formula One, achieving the feat at the Canadian Grand Prix in 2007, and just one year later, he was celebrating another maiden in the sport.


His first Drivers' Championship came in 2008, and in the years that followed, a further five went home with him.

McLaren was the 2008 team he won with, but in 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018, it was Mercedes who Hamilton shone with.

Let's be honest, he's going to add 2019 to that ever-growing list, which means he will level yet another Schumacher record.

Yes, if (we really mean when) Hamilton wins the title this season, he will sit alongside the F1 legend on seven Drivers' Championships.

Simply remarkable.

You may not like Lewis Hamilton, and there are plenty of people who don't, but you simply have to respect him.
