Lewis Hamilton is revved up to pull away from Michael Schumacher and claim his EIGHTH world title this season… and the world champion could also snatch records from the likes of Ayrton Senna, Sebastian Vettel and Nigel Mansell

Lewis Hamilton is on the verge of making history in Formula One as he looks to win a record eighth world championship heading into the 2021 season. Current record: Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton (seven). Current record: Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel (13). Current record: Michael Schumacher (French GP – eight) Lewis Hamilton (Hungarian GP – eight). There are two records for the price of one here, with Hamilton also looking to steal Schumacher’s record for the most wins at a single venue. Current record: Ayrton Senna (San Marino GP – eight) Lewis Hamilton (Australian GP – eight). Current record: Michael Schumacher (10) and Kimi Raikkonen (10). Current record: Nigel Mansell (British GP – seven), Michael Schumacher (Spanish GP – seven and Lewis Hamilton (Italian GP – seven). Current record: Michael Schumacher (24) and Lewis Hamilton (24). Hamilton just needs one fastest lap to take this record from Schumacher and he has a decent amount of options to do so. Here is one record Schumacher has that while not impossible to break is going to be mighty difficult to do so. Current record: Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton (17). With a tally of 5,099 laps led, he is only 12 laps shy of Schumacher. Hamilton and Mercedes would have to have a catastrophic year of unthinkable proportions to deny him this record.
