Last Sunday, Lewis Hamilton won his 92nd Grand Prix in Portugal, setting the record for the most race wins in Formula One history. 
The previous record holder is Michael Schumacher - 91 wins. Sebastian Vettel is third with 53 wins. Since then, racing fans have split into those who say Lewis Hamilton is the greatest Formula One driver of all time and those who disagree, even among F1 drivers.

Lando Norris not interested to break this record. 
The McLaren driver said Lewis Hamilton was winning because of his car, which was supposed to win every race, basically. But later apologised after the comments. Max Verstappen is determined to the contrary and will have to drive until he is 40 to break Hamilton's records, but is that even possible?

What was going to happen to break Lewis Hamilton records? 


Let's estimate. Formula One season consists of 18-22 Grand Prix, the average number is 21. 
Whether Max Verstappen or Lando Norris, the Formula One driver must have been on the podium every race for five years, then he breaks Lewis Hamilton wins record. 
But the racing reality is different: on average F1 world champion wins every second or third race. In this case,it needs ten or thirteen years!

Is it possible to beat Lewis Hamilton wins record?


In a certain scenario yes.
The task would be easier, if Formula One season will consist of 25 Grand Prix. Who has chances? Whether it will be the current Formula One driver or someone new, but he needs more than ten years to break Lewis Hamilton wins record.

That is why the Portuguese Grand Prix is so loud and makes other people obsessed with Lewis Hamilton. 
But back to Max Verstappen, now he has eight wins. Given the power of the Red Bull Racing F1 Team, he has the chance, but Lewis Hamilton has no plans to stop winning.

Actually, I think that people loop at the numbers, the most important thing is to focus on the results without comparing themselves to others.
