Schumi took 90th victory faster
Hamilton is now only missing one win on Michael Schumacher’s record. But it took the Briton a little longer than the German superstar.
+++ Schumi won his 90th victory in the 246th Grand Prix. Hamilton already drove in race number 259 in Mugello. That also means: The 91st victory he won in the 260th race at the earliest, Schumacher only needed 247 for it.
Albon was on the podium for the first time
+++ Alex Albon finally got his first podium place – as the 213rd driver in the history of Formula 1. He is the first Thai on the podium, which makes Thailand the 29th nation to have a driver on the podium. The last new nation was Denmark when Kevin Magnussen finished second in the 2014 Australian GP in a McLaren-Mercedes.
+++ Mugello is the 75th track in Formula 1 history. This honor – without the corona pandemic – would actually have been granted to Hanoi (Vietnam) in April.
