Hamilton equals Schumacher

British Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton has equalled Michael Schumacher's record after winning his seventh world title, AzVision.az reports citing Sky News.Az. 

Hamilton is now the most decorated racer the sport has ever seen - having overtaken Schumacher's record for race victories after winning his 92nd Grand Prix in October.

The 35-year-old, who grew up on a Stevenage council estate, delivered what has been described as his best display of the season as he won a dramatic Turkish Grand Prix this morning.

He has claimed his 10th win from 14 rounds - emulating Schumacher's all-time world title haul with three rounds to spare.

Hamilton was running in fifth for much of an eventful race but used all of his experience to make his intermediate tyres last for 50 of the 58 laps

He took the chequered flag 31.6 seconds clear of Sergio Perez, with Sebastian Vettel third and Charles Leclerc fourth.

Valtteri Bottas, the only man who could have prevented Hamilton from wrapping up the title here, endured a miserable afternoon, spinning twice and finishing 14th.
