Six-time world champion British driver Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) broke the record which he has been sharing with the seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, achieving a 92nd victory in his career after dominating the Portuguese Grand Prix on Sunday.

Hamilton finished comfortably clear of his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas while Red Bull driver Max Verstappen finished in third.

"I could never have dreamed of being where I am today," Hamilton told Sky Sports after the race. "I didn't have a magic ball when I chose to come to this team and partner with great people, but here I am and what I can tell you is I'm trying to make the most of it every single day.

"It's going to take some time to sink in. I was still pushing flat out coming across the line, I'm still very much in race mode mentally. I can't find the right words at the moment."

This is Hamilton's 8th victory this season, after Styria in Austria, Hungary, Britain, Spain, Belgium, Tuscany in Italy and Eiffel of Germany.

Hamilton, the six-time world champion, also boosted his chances of a fourth consecutive title, seventh in his professional career, thus tying another Schumacher's record for the number of world titles.
