English isolates himself as driver with more podiums achieved in the history of Formula 1
English driver Lewis Hamilton won today the Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix, held at the Barcelona race track. It just can't be said that Hamilton "walked" the circuit because, in fact, he did a thorough race during the 66 laps. In addition to easily winning the sixth stage of the Formula 1 World Circuit, the Englishman ended with a lap of advantage over almost all 19 drivers who completed the race. Only the pair that completed the podium escaped: Dutchman Max Verstappen, from Red Bull, and Finn Valtteri Bottas, companion of the winner at Mercedes.
It should be noted that in the private dispute he has with Michael Schumacher, for category records, Hamilton moved forward in total podiums (156, against 155 of the former German driver) and was now closer to equaling the number of victories.
Hamilton completed the 88th English triumph, which is just three behind the German, the driver who has won the most races in all time in Formula 1.
Completed the race within the scoring grid, from sixth to tenth positions, respectively, Carlos Sainz Jr. (McLaren), Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari), Alexander Albon (RBR), Pierre Gasly (AlphaTauri) and Lando Norris (McLaren).
Only one driver left the race. It was Charles Leclerc, who ran after the engine suddenly cut into the chicane and was immobilized on the spot.
The 2020 Formula 1 season follows two weeks from now with the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps.
