Lewis Hamilton equals Michael Schumacher’s all-time record win
Lewis Hamilton looks set to be the most successful F1 driver of all time, but argument about the greatest will rumble on.
The Mercedes driver, who equalled Ferrari great Michael Schumacher’s all-time record 91 wins in Sunday’s Eifel Grand Prix and is heading for a seventh title, however, said that did not matter to him.
“There’s a lot of talk in all sports about greatest, past and present, and I think it’s almost impossible to compare,” said the Briton.
“There’s all this talk of who is and who is not and it’s not important to me. What’s important is the journey...it’s what we’ve done along the way... And everyone’s got a different journey.”
Triple world champion Jackie Stewart, previously Britain’s most successful driver, said last week Hamilton would not be in his top three because there were so many more races now.
