Hamilton Equals Schumacher’s GP Record at the Nürburgring

October 11, 2020
image-1

Mercedes’s Lewis Hamilton has matched the career win record of Michael Schumacher with his 91st F1 victory at the Eifel GP, triumphing over the Red Bull of Max Verstappen at the Nurburgring, as Daniel Ricciardo secured his first podium for the Renault squad.


Top Point Drives of the Day

  1. Nico Hülkenberg (Racing Point-BWT Mercedes): 29 points, finishing 8th from P20 as a replacement for Lance Stroll
  2. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes): 25 points, dominant all day from the front row
  3. Sergio Pérez (Racing Point-BWT Mercedes): 21 points, finishing just off the podium after qualifying in ninth

Our Game

In a race where all players scored acceptably well, Ian missed out only on the first row, where Max Verstappen was able to finish ahead of Lewis Hamilton. Ian now builds his lead out to 95 points over John Cavelti, and Danielle continues to hold down third place.

Eifel Grand Prix Prediction Form Available

Mercedes continued their 100% pole position record for 2020 at the Eifel Grand Prix. But unlike the last five Grands Prix, it was Russian GP winner Valtteri Bottas rather than Lewis Hamilton who took P1 this time, ending up 0.256s ahead of his team mate – while Red Bull’s Max Verstappen secured his near-traditional P3 slot on the grid, but just 0.037s off Hamilton.

The Prediction Form is now available, based on the grid available at this time and is due by 23:00 Pacific Time Saturday.

Predictions will be tabulated and published before the Eifel Grand Prix begins.
