Hamilton Races to a Rain-Soaked Victory in Sochi to Claim His 100th Formula 1 Race Win

The Briton made history on Sunday, as he achieved yet another milestone

Seven-time F1 world champion, Lewis Hamilton, took his 100th race win on Sunday at Russian Grand Prix in Sochi

The tables turned in Hamilton's favour, when compatriot Lando Norris veered off track as the rain came pouring down in the final stages of the race

While Mercedes brought Hamilton in and switched him on to Inters, Lando chose to stay out and it hence cost him the win. Norris was dominant all weekend, setting a blistering pole on Saturday

The 100th race win is one of many recent records broken recently, for the man who started his rookie F1 season back in 2007

Right from his debut season, Lewis was dominant, only narrowly missing out on the 2007 world championship to Kimi Räikönnen

After a few successful seasons, Hamilton made the switch to Mercedes Benz, as Michael Schumacher's seat became vacant

While his first season with the silver arrows wasn't that great, it was during the turbo-hybrid era that Hamilton dominated the sport

He has more championship wins, race wins, podiums and pole positions of any racing driver in history

Hamilton fan or not, you just can't ignore the mans achievements and records so far

As far as race wins go, some of the greats like Schumacher have 91, Sebastien Vettel has 53, Alain Prost has 51 and Brazilian legend, whom Hamilton took inspiration from, growing up, have 41 wins to their names

Hamilton comes from humble beginnings and started karting at the age of six

His father worked two jobs to support his racing career. But in the end it paid off, because once Lewis gets behind the wheel of a Grand Prix car, he really is relentless

This 100th win also puts both Hamilton and Mercedes, back in the championship lead. With a new contract in hand, I for one can't wait to see where Lewis goes from here. Swipe Up to Read More.
