Six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton has become Formula One’s record all-time race winner with a dominant 92nd career victory at the Portuguese Grand Prix.

Iran Press/ Europe: The British driver did just that on Sunday, winning the Portuguese Grand Prix for a record-setting 92nd victory of his outstanding career to overtake Schumacher's 91 wins. Runaway leader Hamilton is also set to equal Schumacher’s record seven championships this season.

Hamilton said afterward: "It is going to take some time to fully sink in. I cannot find the words at the moment."

But with another contract looming at Mercedes, the 35-year-old Hamilton could get well beyond 100 wins.

“I still feel physically strong but you still wonder when is it going to tip over and (you) lose performance,” Hamilton said after his victory in Portugal. “But showing by today it’s not yet.”

Hamilton won his first race in 2007 and first title the following year. But his career really took off when he replaced the retired Schumacher at Mercedes in 2013. Hamilton added five more F1 titles.

Formula One, also known as Formula 1 or F1 and referred to officially as the FIA Formula One World Championship, is the highest class of single-seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile.
