World champion Lewis Hamilton finally got the victory that he was looking for such a long time as he beat Michael Schumacher's record of the most race wins by finishing first at the Portuguese Grand Prix in Algarve International Circuit in Algarve on Sunday.

Hamilton started from pole position but was surpassed by his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas on the first corner of a chaotic first lap.

They both were then surpassed by McLaren's Carlos Sainz once it started to rain but Hamilton maintained his track position and eventually reclaimed the lead to win the race ahead of Bottas and Red Bull's Max Verstappen, and become the most successful F1 racer of all time.

The British driver had equalled Ferrari great Schumacher's record 91 wins at the previous race at the Nuerburgring.

The six-times world champion, surely soon to be seven-times, had already won in more countries than anyone in the sport's history and Portugal, hosting a grand prix for the first time in 24 years, raised that tally to 24.

Hamilton has won at least one race in every season he has competed in since his debut with McLaren in 2007, averaging 10 a year with Mercedes since the start of the V6 turbo hybrid era in 2014. His first win came in Canada at Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on June 10, 2007.
