F1 News: Lewis Hamilton Breaks Yet Another Michael Schumacher Record And More Are On The Horizon

Lewis Hamilton has broken another two records after one of the most eventful opening races of an F1 season yet. The Brit ended in third after both Red Bulls suffered from power issues and were forced to retire. Charles Leclerc took the win with Carlos Sainz finishing 2nd. Hamilton, after a bit of luck and a lot of consistent racing, just managed to grab a podium with George Russell following in fourth.

This podium has allowed Hamilton to break another record previously held by Michael Schumacher, plus another.

He broke Schumacher’s record of 15 seasons in a row with at least one podium finish. But on top of this, he also became the first driver to reach 250 points in total. Mercedes posted the following to Twitter:

That’s 183 @F1podiums for this man right here. The record books still aren’t safe.”
Despite this, there’s still two more records that is within Hamilton’s grasp as just a single win this season would leave him with 16 consecutive seasons with a victory, currently held by Schumacher with 15. The second will come next race after he makes 180 appearances with the Mercedes team, taking the record from Schumacher yet again with Ferrari.

And who knows, Hamilton could take his 8th world championship this year, although fans of the British racer won’t want to get their hopes up just yet.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
