Lewis Hamilton, who is the Formula 1 world champion for 7 times, has gained his 100th pole position. This happened last weekend during the Spanish Grand Prix event. Finally, he scored a superb victory, which is his fifth following win in Barcelona.
The racer from Britain literally flew the lap for the period of one minute and 16.741 seconds when he was passing the third round of qualifying. Although he couldn’t improve on his time on the second try. But despite this, the racer can now boast having 100 pole positions for his career. By the way, this exceeds the 68 pole positions of Michael Schumacher, who until that moment remained the leader.
Hamilton spent most of the laps following Max Verstappen after overtaking in the first corner. Despite the fact that Verstappen slowly pulled ahead, Mercedes managed to complete the two-stop strategy. This, in order, brought the world champion back into action. He finished first and achieved his sixth victory in Barcelona. Hamilton is now 14 points ahead of Verstappen in the drivers’ championship.
