Lewis Hamilton has set a new F1 record after emerging winner of Spanish GP on Sunday.
Hamilton also broke Michael Schumacher’s record for the most podium finishes in F1.
Hamilton had tied Schumacher’s mark of 155 with a runner-up finish at last week’s Anniversary GP and is now on his to the 156 after one of the largest victories of his career at Barcelona – 24 seconds over Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.
Hamilton’s latest top three finish means he moves on to 219 points finishes in F1, just two shy of Schumacher’s record haul of 221.
He is also now just three wins away from matching Schumacher’s record tally of 91 race victories.
