BRITISH Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton has overtaken legendary German driver Michael Schumacher’s record number of Grand Prix wins.
Hamilton has brilliantly beaten Schumacher’s record after victoriously winning his 92nd Grand Prix following victory in Portugal.
At one point it seemed like Hamilton would have to wait until the Italian Grand Prix in Imola after he dropped to third in a hectic first two laps.
However, after successfully finding his way into second, the record-breaking Brit managed to pass Valtteri Bottas on lap 20 and dominated from there.
The socially distanced crowd gave Hamilton a standing ovation before he celebrated with team members and gave his father Anthony a huge celebratory hug.
Speaking after the race, the British driver said: “I could only ever have dreamed of being where I am today.
“I didn’t have a magic ball when I chose to come to this team and partner with these great people, but here I am.
“Everything we do together – we are all rowing in the same direction and that’s why we’re doing what we’re doing.
“And my dad’s here and my step mum Linda, and Roscoe [Hamilton’s dog]. It is going to take some time for it to fully sink in. I was still pushing flat out as I came across the line. I can’t find the words at the moment.”
Congratulations to Lewis for achieving such a terrific accomplishment.
