Lewis Hamilton equaled German F1 legend Michael Schumacher’s record tally of 91 Formula 1 win after he triumphed in Eifel Grand Prix in Germany.
The win took the Briton closer to his seventh World Championship which will equal another of Schumacher’s great achievements. However, it was a bittersweet moment for the Mercedes.
Where Hamilton finished first, his teammate Valterri Bottas had to retire his car. That result also faded Finn’s hopes of a first World Championship after Hamilton cruised to a colossal lead of 69 points with only six races remaining.
In the other part of the room, Max Verstappen finished second, who also ended up nicking the fastest lap right at the end, from Hamilton. Whereas, it was an amazing day for Renault who claimed their first podium since its comeback in 2016.
On top of that, Daniel Ricciardo won his first podium since 2018, when he was driving for Red Bull. Sergio Perez finished fourth to grasp Racing Point’s third position tighter in Constructors’ Championship. The Driver’s Championship after the race looked like this:
The race for P4 and P5 is profound and it appears like it will go right down to the wire. Hamilton has a good lead whereas Verstappen is crawling on the heels of Valterri Bottas.
The Constructors’ Championship also had some exciting fights.
The third position looks up for grabs and three teams have a viable option to take that away from Racing Point. This season is headed for some nail-biting racing!
