Lewis Hamilton is the all time record holder of the most formula one victories after winning the Portuguese Grand Prix to surpass Michael Schumacher .
His victory, on a humiliating day for team-mate Bottas, gave Hamilton a 77-point advantage in the championship as he moves ever closer to a seventh world title, which would match Schumacher’s other surviving record.
Valtteri Bottas finished second and Ferraris Max Verstappen third.
Hamilton received a standing ovation from the socially distanced crowd, before celebrating with team members and then a long embrace with father Anthony.
Hamilton said he “owed it all” to his Mercedes team, adding: “I could only ever have dreamed of being where I am today.
“I didn’t have a magic ball when I chose to come to this team and partner with these great people, but here I am.
“Everything we do together – we are all rowing in the same direction and that’s why we’re doing what we’re doing.
“I really owe it all to[Mercedes team] for their teamwork, continually innovating and pushing the barrier even higher every year. It’s such a privilege working with them. It really is absolutely incredible.”
