Lewis Hamilton equals Michael Schumacher’s 91 race wins at Eifel F1 GP

Lewis Hamilton won the Eifel Grand Prix and in doing so has matched Michael Schumacher’s record of 91 Formula One wins. Hamilton had been disappointed not to take pole but executed on Sunday when it mattered. In matching Schumacher Hamilton has achieved a remarkable feat, doing so in his 261st race. The German won 19 races with Benetton and 72 with Ferrari, while Hamilton’s tally is also spread across two teams, 21 with McLaren and now 70 with Mercedes. Schumacher’s greatest record of seven world championships is now all but in Hamilton’s hands. Hamilton has yet to sign a new contract for next season with Mercedes but has been clear that he feels he could race on for several more years at least. Hamilton, who has remarkable skill in managing his tyres, stayed out. It may have been far from spectacular but will surely be memorable for Hamilton.
