91 wins – Lewis Hamilton equaled Michael Schumacher’s 14-year old record for most wins in Formula 1. It’s only obvious that the 6 times World Champion will score several more. In this Pits To Podium (https://bit.ly/pitstopodium) segment, Soumil and Kunal make a calculated guess – 120 F1 wins don’t seem out of reach for the Briton. Let’s know what you think the final number could be?
Also in this episode, we rate the 2020 Eifel Grand Prix – hot or not? The statistics seem to suggest a good race with a great result. After all, 9 out of the 10 teams scored points. Daniel Ricciardo scored his first podium with Renault, also Renault’s first podium in Formula 1 after returning to the sport as a works team. This tattoo will be a memorable one for Cyril Abiteboul!
Racing Point’s super-sub Nico Hulkenberg is only 7 points behind Sebastian Vettel in the Drivers’ Championship. In fact, Hulkenberg has out-scored Vettel in the last 7 races! Perez’s podium miss, Leclerc’s spirited drive & high number of DNfs in the race – we re-live the key talking points.
Also, was the late-race Safety Car period a tad too long? In fact, was the Safety Car slower than normal since drivers were complaining time and again? And a welcome to the points for Haas’ Romain Grosjean – he finished 9th despite being shown a black-white flag and suffering finger damage on the opening lap. Tune in!
