Lewis Hamilton breaks Michael Schumacher's win record at the Portuguese Grand Prix



Lewis Hamilton passed Valtteri Bottas to take a commanding victory in the Portuguese Grand Prix and break Formula 1's all-time win record.

Hamilton dropped to third in a manic first two laps that ended with McLaren's Carlos Sainz leading, but fought back to crush Bottas' hopes.

After both Mercedes passed Sainz, Hamilton tracked Bottas before taking the lead on lap 20.

From there, Hamilton dominated to take his 92nd career Grand Prix victory.

Hamilton received a standing ovation from the socially distanced crowd, before celebrating with team members and then a long embrace with father Anthony.

I look forward to the day when the cars will have no drivers. Hamilton has had the #1 ride his whole career. To say it couldn't have been someone else is narrow-minded thinking.
