Gamechanger. At the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix, the motorsport world witnessed something truly remarkable.
Six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton rocketed to his 92nd Formula 1 Grand Prix victory, making him the most successful driver the sport has ever seen in terms of outright race wins.
While record-breaking statistics have become a trademark of Lewis’s meteoric F1 career to date; this really is the big one, and it’s worth taking a moment to soak it all in. But first an exclusive word from LH44 himself. “First, I owe these 92 wins to the team here and back and the factory for their tremendous work. They are continuously innovating and pushing the barrier, even higher every year. It's been such a privilege working with them and I am so grateful for all the moments. The reliability has been incredible thanks to the Mercedes team, PETRONAS, and all our partners who are continuously pushing. No one is sitting back on the success, everyone is pushing and pushing and pushing. That's the most incredible thing to be surrounded by: it inspires you, that collaboration, and there's nothing quite like it,” explained Lewis.
“I could only ever have dreamed of being where I am today. I didn't have a crystal ball when I chose to come to this team and partner with these great people. What I can tell you is that I am trying to make the most of it every single day. Everything that we do together, we are all rowing in the same direction and that's why you're seeing the success that we're having. My dad is here which is amazing, my step-mum Linda is here, Roscoe too. I feel very blessed. It's going to take some time for it to sink in. I was still pushing flat out coming across the line and I am still in race mode mentally. I can't find the words at the moment.”
