Hamilton vs Schumacher: Wet weather, coping with pressure & consistency – who’s the GOAT?

LEWIS HAMILTON broke Michael Schumacher’s win record on his way to a seventh world title in 2020. Hamilton also surpassed Schumacher’s record for the most podiums and pole positions. While Schumacher achieved an impressive 68 poles during his F1 career, Hamilton currently sits on 97, and having reached that number on 44 fewer races. Make no mistake, Schumacher was quick, but Hamilton easily edges this one. For the best part, Hamilton’s comments on tyres are interesting for those studying the lap times. Currently, the Mercedes is the best car and Hamilton’s consistency there has been staggering. But when you look at Schumacher’s stats, the results are punctuated by retirements – something Hamilton rarely does.
