Hamilton breaks F1’s all-time wins record
Lewis Hamilton won for a record-breaking 92nd time in Formula 1 to become the driver with the most race wins in history at the Portuguese Grand Prix.
Two weeks after equalling the huge haul of 91 wins set by Michael Schumacher in 2006, Hamilton now holds the prestigious record outright with a victory that moves him potentially just two more races away from drawing level with the German great as a seven-time world champion.
Hamilton leads the Drivers’ Championship by 77 points with five races to go and just 130 points left to play for.
“I could never have dreamed of being where I am today,” said Hamilton, who shared an embrace with his father Anthony after the race.
“I didn’t have a magic ball when I chose to come to this team and partner with great people, but here I am and what I can tell you is I’m trying to make the most of it every single day. It’s going to take some time to sink in.”
