  • Although Lewis Hamilton is struggling this season, the Mercedes driver still remains the greatest driver in the Formula One history
  • His latest performance at the Canadian Grand Prix was one of the most impressive results he has produced this season
  • The seven-time Formula One champions hold the record for most race wins as well as most titles
  • Max Verstappen’s victory at the recent Canadian Grand Prix saw him reach 26 race wins

Only a few drivers are fortunate enough to taste the glorious victory of standing on the podium’s top step; some do not even make it to the top three.

Max Verstappen’s victory at the Canadian Grand Prix added to his tally of wins, but who else will join him? Let us explore!

After winning his 26th race at the Canadian Grand Prix, the world’s current Formula One champion and world championship leader is moving forward fast.

Verstappen is looking to win his second world title without controversy after winning his first one under a cloud. So it’s not surprising to see the Dutchman add to his tally this season and possibly move up the list.

4. Fernando Alonso– 32 race wins – 2 world titles

Fernando Alonso continues to compete at the pinnacle of his abilities, securing a fantastic front-row start in a challenging practice session at the Canadian Grand Prix this season.

With back-to-back wins for Renault in 2005-06, the 40-year-old overtook Michael Schumacher’s supremacy. You wouldn’t bet against Alonso adding to his total count with a bit of luck after qualifying at the weekend.

3. Sebastian Vettel – 53  race wins – 4 world titles

Sebastian Vettel won successive titles with Red Bull from 2010 to 2013, conquering the sport until the rules changed in 2014.

The German continued to win races with Ferrari, but he couldn’t beat Hamilton to add to his world championships. Improvements must be made at Vettel’s current Aston Martin team if he is to add to his 53 victories.

The Auston Martin driver appears to be struggling to find his best form this season, and he finished position 12 at the Canadian Grand Prix

2. Michael Schumacher – 91 wins – 7 world titles

Michael Schumacher, who has taken the second step on the podium 91 times in his career, just misses out on the first place.

With a significant jump from third place, the Ferrari icon set virtually all of the sport’s records (though most have since been broken) to become one of the best drivers of all time.

He was involved in a skydiving accident in December 2013 that resulted in a severe trauma injury to his brain. Schumacher is still recovering at home, and his condition is uncertain.

However, his son, Mick Schumacher, has preceded in his father’s footsteps and is racing in Formula One in his second season with Haas.

The Mercedes driver is widely regarded as the greatest driver of all time and is the only racer to reach and exceed the century mark. The centurion has broken almost every record in the book.

After this weekend’s achievements at the Canadian Grand Prix, he now has 103 wins, 103 poles, and 184 podiums. The British driver has the most points finished (252), as well as the highest average points per race started (14.36).

No one has led more laps than Hamilton (5396), and no one has led a race from start to finish too many times than him (23). He holds the record for getting pole and winning in the same race, having done so 61 times.

This season, a win appears unlikely as the Mercedes driver has struggled a lot and has not been in his best form, although his car has been facing porpoising issues.

Earlier this year, Hamilton said that he would not be competing for a title this season, but if he wins his 104th race in 2022, he will extend his streak of being a race winner in every season he has contested in – no one else can say that.
