Lewis hamilton can enter the memories of the next generations this weekend in the Eifel Grand Prix, in Nurburgring. The Briton is one of the most successful pilots in the history of the Formula 1 and this Sunday is expected to equal a record that seemed unattainable a few years ago.
Michael Schumacher is for many the best driver of all time, along with Ayrton senna. The German is the holder of two incredible records: he is the one who won the most races in the history of the category with 91 victories and the one with the most world titles with seven championships, five of them with Ferrari.
For its part, Lewis hamilton can equal the mark of victories obtained by ‘Schumi‘and place himself in the olympus of great pilots in history. Also, you can do it very close to the home of the German idol. The circuit of Nurburgring It is located less than 100 kilometers from the birthplace of Schumacher, the town of Hurth.
The circuit of Nurburgring It has 5,148 kilometers and the race will be 60 laps. The weather conditions of the German track can be key at the time of the test and much more if the same thing happens again that on Saturday morning: the practice sessions were canceled due to a heavy storm of fog and rain.
Hamilton is the world leader and has great advantages over its closest rivals: Valtteri Bottas Y Max verstappen. This is why he is the firm candidate to win the Formula 1 drivers’ title and thus match Michael Schumacher in number of championships. However, your rivals, or the weather, will try to prevent it.
