After what happened at Silverstone, Max Verstappen will be even more mad at Lewis Hamilton, and it is safe to bet that by the end of the season there will be more clashes between the two. The first stage of this vicious rivalry will be Hungary, where however Sir Lewis has two extra-motivations. Both would make him more of the Formula 1 legend than he is now.
Fault of whom
Hamilton blesses Mercedes updates: “Now we’re in the running”
The Mercedes driver, in fact, is at 99 victories in the Circus: with one more he would reach the triple digit, share that has already reached with the pole positions. But not only that: by winning at the Hungaroring, Hamilton would become the first driver in the history of Formula 1 to win nine hits on the same circuit. Hamilton triumphed in Hungary in 2007, 2009, 2012, 2013, 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2020. The record is eight and is shared by the British and Michael Schumacher. In addition to Hungaroring, Hamilton is also an eight-time winner of Silverstone, while Kaiser Schumi can boast that laurel for Magny-Cours.

As the Formula 1 social networks underline, the two of them, Hamilton and Schumacher, always chase in this ranking: seven wins for the German and # 44 in Montreal, as many for the former Ferrari driver in Imola. To have a rider outside of this duo in the ranking of multiple winners on the same circuit, it is necessary to ‘go down’ to Ayrton’s six victories Seine, however, obtained in a magical place like Monte Carlo. To keep him company, needless to say, Schumacher (Spa, Montmeló, Suzuka) and Hamilton (Montmeló, Shanghai). Among the active drivers, however, the best of the ‘terrestrials’ is Sebastian Vettel with five wins in Singapore. Round and round, there are always the same ones to dominate the rankings. But Hamilton has the match ball to be alone here too.
