Lewis Hamilton Humbled after eclipsing Michael Schumacher's podium record

By Edikan Akpan - Lewis Hamilton described breaking Michael Schumacher's Formula One podium record as "beyond his P dreams".

The Mercedes driver finished 24 seconds clear of Max Verstappen and 44 seconds ahead of team-mate Valtteri Bottas in a crushing performance at Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix to extend his lead at the summit of the world championship.

Hamilton is now 37 points clear of Red Bull driver Verstappen.

No driver in Formula One’s 70-year history has stood on a Grand Prix rostrum more times than Hamilton’s stunning 156 visits from 256 starts.

In his tweet-
The most podium's in @f1 🤯 I can’t even begin to describe how this feels. Thank you all for your love and positivity. I want to thank everyone back at the factory, I’m so proud to be a part of this team and I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe. #StillWeRise pic.twitter.com/iY7Wc2RP21

Lewis will head to the 7th round in Belgium this Sunday and a win there, and then in Imola a week later, will provide him with the opportunity to equal Schumacher’s 91 victories, the last of which he recorded in China in 2006, at Ferrari’s home track in Mugello. The Briton remains comfortably on course to equal Schumacher’s seven titles this season, too.

The 35-year-old is the sport’s sole black driver and he has already said that winning the championship alongside his personal fight against racism will rank as his greatest achievement.
