Lewis Hamilton issues emotional Michael Schumacher tribute after breaking race win record

Lewis Hamilton has paid tribute to legendary F1 driver Michael Schumacher after breaking the record for most race wins in F1. Schumacher’s record of 91 race wins in Formula One was expected to stand the test of time.

His final victory came at the 2006 Chinese Grand Prix and the following year saw a young Hamilton make an instant impact in the sport.

Still, nobody would have quite predicted that Hamilton would go on to have the career that he has had to date.

Since moving to Mercedes in 2013, Hamilton has dominated the sport, breaking numerous records along the way.

The 35-year-old remains on course to match Schumacher’s record of seven world championships this season after opening up a lead of 77 points over Valtteri Bottas at the Portuguese Grand Prix.
