Lewis Hamilton will get the opportunity to score an impressive landmark at this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix as he competes in his 200th F1 race.
The Silver Arrows ace made his debut at the 2007 Australian Grand Prix and has since then won the drivers' championship three times, scored 57 individual race victories and stood on the podium an impressive 110 times.
Despite not normally being one for statistics, the 32 year old racer acknowledges this 200th GP is a special occasion, as he looks to resume his championship battle with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel. Lewis said: "It is crazy to think that I am reaching that milestone. I still feel young at heart but I have been in Formula One a long time and I am very privileged. I remember my first Grand Prix and even before that and now I am at 200! I am grateful for what I have. I think we all set out in life to achieve much more. We set the bar so high but this sport is a massive challenge and what I have done is satisfying.”
"Of course you could say I wish this race was a little bit better but you can't live like that. You have ups and downs and they have enabled me to be in this position today and the man I am today. That's God's plan and I am happy with that."
