On 12 July 2020, Lewis Hamilton became only the second driver in history to win an F1 race across three decades: a unique statistic that incidentally, only three current drivers – Daniel Ricciardo, Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc will be able to match in 2030 at the earliest. Yet none of these will ever likely surpass Hamilton's 95 victories, 98 pole positions and 53 fastest laps in their lifetime.
And of particular insult to former title rivals Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso, are Hamilton's clutch of seven world championships, several having been won at their expense, earning the Mercedes driver the title of the Greatest Of All Time. The GOAT. Statistically.
