"I always thought records were there to be broken." -Michael Schumacher
Lewis Hamilton won the first race of the 2021 season, adding one more trophy to his collection, reaching a total of 96 wins, and also breaking the Most Laps Led record (5,126) in the same race, previously set by Michael Schumacher (5,111).
Here's 5 more records that could be broken (or equalled) by Lewis Hamilton this season:
Most Race Starts with a Single Constructor: Michael Schumacher holds that record, having started 179 races for Ferrari. Just behind him, Lewis Hamilton, with 157 race starts for Mercedes. With the 2021 season being a 23-race season, Hamilton could break that record just by one race start.
Most wins at the same Grand Prix: Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton share that record, with Schumacher having 8 wins at the French GP, and Hamilton having 8 wins at the Hungarian GP.
Most Pole Positions at the same Grand Prix: Three drivers share that record, all having 8 wins at the same Grand Prix: Ayrton Senna (San Marino GP), Michael Schumacher (Japanese GP) and Lewis Hamilton (Australian GP).
Most Consecutive Wins at the same Grand Prix: This is not a record that could be broken, but one that could be equalled this season, as Ayrton Senna has 5 consecutive Monaco GP wins, and Lewis Hamilton has 4 consecutive Spanish GP wins.
Total Championships: As most people know, Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton share that record, both having a total of 7 World Driver's Championship titles, and we strongly believe that Hamilton will manage to clench his 8th title this season.
