Lewis Hamilton has broken Michael Schumacher’s record for the most podium finishes in F1 with a dominant victory at the Spanish GP.

Hamilton had tied Schumacher’s mark of 155 with a runner-up finish at last week’s Anniversary GP and is now out on his own on 156 after one of the largest victories of his career at Barcelona – 24 seconds over Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.

Schumacher’s milestone had stood since 2012, when he had claimed the final podium of his career with a third place in Valencia.

The seven-time champion moved to the top of all-time podium table ahead of previous record-holder Alain Prost (106 podiums) in 2002.

Hamilton’s 156 podiums have come from 256 appearances – a stunning ratio of 61 per cent. Schumacher achieved 155 podiums in 306 starts across two stints in F1.

“It’s an incredible ratio,” said Sky F1’s Karun Chandhok.
