Valtteri Bottas took the initial lead of the Eifel GP in Germany after fighting wheel-to-wheel with his Mercedes team-mate, Lewis Hamilton, but it all fell apart when he locked his brakes under pressure from Lewis. With Bottas subsequently retiring due to an engine problem, Lewis went on to win the 91st GP of his career, equalling Michael Schumacher's long-standing record. Red Bull's Max Verstappen pushed Hamilton hard all the way; and Daniel Riccardo finished a jubilant third for Renault, as Peter Windsor reports in his regular race analysis.

  • What a shame Michael could not be there to hand over his helmet in person, you could see Lewis was touched, Michael was and is a Legend in the sport and its sad that he is the way he is now, I am sure Lewis will win many more in his time in F1, will we ever see the his like again in this sport.

  • never compare the two! Michael was the best lewis is a wannabe. there is enough info out there to show lewis is overated. mike never had so many battles with teammates, mike got there quicker with less races, mike fought harder, mike won races with a lesser car, something lewis cannot claim but on a few occasions. Lewis did not impress or shine before he was in a MERC nor his teammates, which explains allot. mike did not cry and complain when he was not 1st, something Lou just loves to do as well as pressure MERC to do better. pretty funny if you think about it all

  • What you are saying is that if you are on the inside into a corner you should never get a penalty? If that was the case racing in the corners would no longer exist. A driver would just defend the inside of the corner and if someone tries to go around he gets crashed out of the race. I do hope that is not your definition of racing. This was one of the most obvious penalties ever. Similar to the incidents between Hamilton and Albon. The only thing that is weird is that Hamilton both times only got a 5 second penalty.

  • Nobody is really commenting on the re start after the SC. LH said it himself, he tricked MV. I watched it a fair few times on replay, and it is a masterful display of mind games and car control. At the DRS line he slowed to an absolute crawl, almost pedestrian. MV’s slight impatience and worry of cold tyres made him pull to the right and start ‘swaying’ the car. LH then did the same but it was a rouse. It made MV think LH WAS NOT ready to go, and was also worried about his tyres. WRONG😂 LH placed his car in the middle of the track and planted it into the chicane, and by the time he exited, he was gone🏁🏆 You can see the gap via the helicopter view. Absolutely brilliant to witness👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

  • Lewis is the all-time best. At the very start of his career, he equaled a two time world champ. If he sticks around for another 3 years and wins, how are you going to deny him. Besides, athletes just get better over time. Lewis will be eclipsed. It's a lot easier and a lot clearer to think of whose the best of all time when you talk about track and field. Disregarding wind :) When a record gets eclipsed you have to say the person breaking the record is the best of all time. The person whose record is broken is merely the best of his or her time. As an example: Robert Beamon is an American former track and field athlete, best known for his world record in the long jump at the Mexico City Olympics in 1968. He broke the existing record by a margin of 55 cm and his world record stood for almost 23 years until it was broken in 1991 by Mike Powell. Wikipedia Robert Beamon was the best of all time, until Mike Powell came along. Juan Fangio was the best of his time, not the all-time best driver.

  • Great analysis sir, I agree with you in the kimi incident and penalty for the inicidends like those. It should be called race incident. Also like you said it's not motorsport. For me F1 is not motorsport. Any more. It's F1 entertainment for last 2 years. Unnecessary safety cars and biased penalties and mid season rule changes and 2-3 laps extra safety car lap to bunch up the field. It's not motorsport anymore. F1 entertainment with safty-spicey car for entertainment.

  • Despite equaling Schumacher's records, Lewis is by no means, as Jackie Stewart recently stated, the greatest driver of all time! We leave all arguments for this aside for a while. Whoever is clearly showing that he is the very best at the moment is Max Verstappen, most experts agree on that. Of course, respect for Lewis he has clearly shown himself to be an amazingly talented driver unfortunately for him it was not possible to show that he would be one of the greatest. And also Hamilton himself knows very well that it is his car that can just keep him in front of Max;-)

  • To respond to everyone that nags about Hamilton having such a dominant car: Schumacher had tires(Bridgestone) taylor made to suite his driving style and the Ferrari. In the Schumacher era, Schumacher's Ferrari lapped the number two team!!!! Yes, you heard correctly, LAPPED!!! Think of Hamilton lapping Redbull and Ferrari almost every race! Today the Mercedes is quite dominant, but not by far as dominant as the Ferrari was. Two years ago and the year before Ferrari could've won if they didn't repeatedly mess up their strategy and Vettel hadn't made so many misstakes. Another thing that Schumacher fans don't like to hear is that Hamilton actually managed to win by reasonable fair driving. Schumacher is known for his dirty tricks, winning two of his titles by crashing into his nearest opponents. Younger F1 fans are maybe not aware of the fact that many of the rules and regulations concerning overtaking came to place cause of Schumacher dirty driving. Why is Hamilton such a good driver. He has it all! To be a world champion you need to be fast over one lap and have a good race pace. Some drivers like Vettel, Rosberg and Bottas actually has these two skills but not so much more. Some drivers are good at strategy, fuel saving and tire management as Button, Perez etc. (Yes you can win WC by just these categories as both Button and Vettel has done) Then we have drivers like Riccardo, LeClerc and Verstappen. They possesses the ability to break late and have an incredible sensitivity in the left foot. (Russel and Norris most likely got this ability too) In this category, we can count in race craft and the lightning fast judgement when to make late breaking overtaking. Two drivers that we know by fact can adapt their driving to suite a difficult car are Verstappen and LeClerc. That's why for instance Gasly and Albon can't match Verstappen. Everyone that have followed LeClerc knows that's his strength too. LeClerc eas beaten by his teammate Markus Ericsson in the Alfa Romeo the three first races, then all of a sudden he outclassed Ericsson for the remaining races. In today's Ferrari we can witness the same. One of Vettel's weaknesses is just that, he can't adapt his driving style. Hamilton has all of the abilities I've counted up. What else is left judging a good racing driver? It's racing awareness. This is actually Hamilton's best asset. This almost sixth sense of a racing driver makes him foresee and predict what his opponents are going to do or place themselves without seeing them in the rear mirrors. It's hard to say how good Verstappens and LeClerc's racing awareness is. What I've seen, it's not at the same level as Hamilton's. But maybe we've seen to little of them in close combats. Verstappen has done some clumsy moves in his debute. Remember that Hamilton beat his teammate, a two time wc Alonso, his first year. LeClerc has a weaknesses in his defensive driving. He tends to not block the inside (noticed that several times) when fending off his opponents. Lewis Hamilton is the most complete driver I've seen. We should all be thankful to witness a once in a lifetime super talent like Hamilton no matter what favorite driver we have or no matter how tired we are at seeing the same driver winning it all. Lewis Hamilton is the best.

    • @k halliday - thank you for this insight, very good point. Free testing for just one team gave Schumacher unfair benefits. It reminds us that Ferrari was a part of the governing body in F1 directly. I respect Schumacher massively as a race driver, but when people denies Hamilton his achievements I have to point out all the benifits Schumacher had. He was a media product to enhance F1 with Ferrari directing the rules to their own benifits. Yes Hamilton's appearance is off course suited for media, but it's not directed thru F1 and FIA. He's a front figure for Mercedes. That's a big difference. Mercedes is massively dominant but it's at least from their own performance and hard work not by directing the rules in F1.

If you were a true motorsport fan you would be amazed by Hamilton's superiority in qually, race pace, late breaking overtakes, close combat skills and his best asset racing awareness. This almost sixth sense that allows him to foresee and predict what his opponents are going to do or place themselves without seeing them in the rear mirrors. Lewis Hamilton is the GOAT /a German Riccardo fan

  • One thing I have to say in any debate about Lewis vs Schumacher as an all-time great is that Schumacher just was not a sportsman. He (almost certainly) deliberately drove into Damon Hill in 1994 and certainly did so to Jacques Villeneuve in 1997. Motor racing is dangerous, even in modern F1 with all its safety features, and deliberately driving into another car is something that should just not be tolerated.

  • You simply cannot find it in yourself to give a complement to Sergio Perez who put in another quality drive. It seems like you have a personal issue. Most people feel the Renault F1 is slightly quicker car or equal to the Racing Point. Had there not been that safety car Sergio was rapidly gaining on Ricciardo who would have had very worn tyres at the end. Per Race Start Sergio has score half a point more Ricciardo. I do actually think Ricciardo is driving well but I really doubt if ou swapped the cars the result would have been different. I think the first four finisher all drove very well yesterday.

  • With all the respect for you Peter with your experience and passion for the details... destroying Russell's race was absolutely Kimi's fault. If you dont penalise the driver on the inside then you're simply stopping people from overtaking on the outside. Driver on the inside already has an advantage as he's closer to apex and taking the shorter path. But if his car loses control and hits another car he should be penalised

  • Find your assessment of Kim is penalty hard to understand Peter. The penalty was not for squeezing someone out as vettel did did Kevin which was great racing and I don’t recall seeing FIA give a penalty for what your talking about except Hamilton on Albion back in Austria. Kimi was penalised rightly for clattering into George when he lost control of his Alfa. I totally agree and your right the outside overtaker does take a risk and pays the penalty if it goes goes wrong for the person overtaking ala Albon and George. On the whole though we haven’t seen outside overtaking discouraged by penalties which was your concern....

  • Hope this win, apart from being historic /record equalling, shuts up all of Lewis critics and cements his GOAT credentials in their minds. At one point he was almost lapping Riccardos 3rd place before the safety car. Max I think, throughout the race, pretty much conceded his position/Lewis dominance, and settled for p2/p3 and fastest lap on new tyres.

I respect that F1 will always look for where the money is but it has to have some of those classic tracks otherwise there's nothing that represents the heartbeat of F1. For example, my girlfriend who couldn't care less about F1 was glued to this race because of the scenery surrounding the Nurburgring - that's a huge testament to both the area, the track and what's sorely missing in the modern era of F1.

He never once took control of a race and this year his quali trick doesn't work because he doesn't have that illegal engine. Now even with track position and fresh air( top 3 checkout) he doesn't manage his tyres well. Stripping that illegal engine has exposed him. A modern day trulli in the making! This guy wants attention on Saturday, same like Russel , come Sunday these guys are nowhere. Need to have good translation of pace from Saturday to Sunday.

  • Peter what are your thoughts on the SC coming out instead of a VSC? I thought it spoilt a fascinating end to the race and was completely unnecessary, especially when you see where the marshalls recovered the car too. The stewards seem very reluctant to use the VSC in the F1 races compared to F2 & F3

    • RJWilky I apologise, I didn’t mean to insinuate you are a plastic fan, it was just you mentioned “what was enjoyable about watching P1 & P2 drive off”. Well nothing enjoyable at all hence why the new regs are coming in. Just a dame shame they pushed those back for another year. But there where enjoyable battles further down the field. I mentioned the fight for third as it was a battle of strategy, implying that there are other enjoyable events in an F1 race and that not everything has to be about overtaking. When the SC comes out the majority of the field (in this case the whole field) change their tyres to the freshest available set they have and other than the first few laps the field quickly becomes strung out and there are not that many overtakes other than the slower cars that through better strategy got themselves up into a points scoring position (thinking of Russel in Mugello) now lose that advantage due to what looks like IMO, a SC that was deployed to artificially spice up the race for the casual viewer. I don’t see that as fair or exciting. I think back to when Jules Bianchi got that point in Monaco all those years ago and the joyful senes that day and how happy Renault were this time you don’t want to get robbed of those moments artificially

    • @Mini Mead3 You say I'm focussing on just the fight for 1st (which I wasn't) yet here you are focussed on the fight for 3rd. The safety car gave us all a brand new fight for ALL track positions, so a win-win for us both the way I see it.

    • @Formula1Madx Who are we to decide when it should be a FSC or VSC? That's the job of the stewards, they have ALL the info.

      RJWilkyRJWilkyमहीने पहले
    • RJWilky try focusing on the whole field instead of just the fight for first, you might enjoy the races a lot more. The fight for third was enjoyable seeing if Perez could close down a 13 second gap and if Ricciardo had kept some life in the tyre to keep track position. You get robbed of these moments when an unnecessary SC is thrown.

  • Thanks again PW for another insightful video. Congrats to Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardio. Lewis is definitely going to set some records that will be difficult to beat. A talented individual who is part of a great team, Mercedes. With regards to Sebastian Vettel; IMO there is most definitely a different team dynamic with him and Ferrari than there is with Ricciardo and Renault. I think something happened at Ferrari that caused too much negative energy for Vettel which is why he needed to make a move, regardless of whether Ferrari showed him the door. He needs to get out of a caustic relationship, settle his mind and regain his mojo, so to speak. Lets see how he does at Aston Martin with a fresh perspective. My 2 cents. Thanks and Cheers

  • Well done Lewis a top job. I can’t forgive Schumacher for so much cheating. Knocking Damon off, trying to take out Jacques and running the Benetton with illegal driving aids...

    • Sorry, but I think in '94 all people wanted Schumi to loose (including me) at all cost. Later I realized that was bad. And had he lost that title it would be a real cheat. I lost my hero that year, that made me biased against Schumi. Yet i know He was simply the best.

    • I don't see Michael as a cheater...the thing with Jaques wasn't correct...but I think 10 yaers earlier this would have been called "racing" and the illegal stuff carwise was 100% from the King of Cheaters: Briatore...drivers don't decide stuff like this...

    • Seeking a competitive edge (cheating) invades almost everything in life. How many Olympic champs have run afoul of the rules? Too many to name. My guess is that at some point during Lewis’ career the team he drove for sought and achieved a competitive edge

  • Surprised no footnote on Albon but I thoroughly enjoyed the video and your excellent analysis Peter. Perhaps you will discuss him in the wider context of his season so far. I think he might struggle to keep a seat in F1 now. Hoping Hulkenberg or Gasly for the second RB seat

  • I have to disagree on your point about overtaking around the outside, if think if a driver is next to a rival he is obliged to leave him enough space to at least stay on the race track regardless whether it's inside or outside

    • @Mark Taylor Since 2 cars are almost never exactly along side each other, I disagree that it should be like that but of course it also depends heavily on the specific situation

      Musculus IVMusculus IVमहीने पहले
    • @Musculus IV if the car is along side, then yes they have to leave room. And by along side I mean the cars are exactly level. If the car on the outside even has his nose behind, then he can get pushed wide on the exit of the corner.

      Mark TaylorMark Taylorमहीने पहले
    • @Mark Taylor That's not true, the rules say that when a car significantly along side you, you have to leave him enough space to stay on the track. That's what the rules say and Peter was arguing that it should be like you described it instead

    • @Musculus IV at the first stint max was right at his tail for quite a few laps. then, the sc restart could have gone much worse for lewis, max was a serious threat there. it wasn't the most spectacular battle, for sure, but i wouldn't say it was an easy win

      jakublyjakublyमहीने पहले
    • @jakubly obviously, but Verstappen could never really challenge Hamilton. He was always able to respond to a quick lap of Verstappen and could still manage the tyres at the same time. It seemed very much like Hamilton was controlling the pace and had quite some reserve, regardless of what he might say after the race

    • @Adam Petten Disagree. In that car he should be a serious championship contender. Lewis makes him look silly a lot of the time. Bottas only has 1 DNF. When Lewis's tyre went he still won the race. Bottas dropped to 13th. Thats the difference between them. And you cant say it was luck there. Its driving finesse.

      TerribleFireTerribleFireमहीने पहले
    • @TerribleFire Useless is scoring few points. Russell and other drivers are more useless if pushing Hamilton is the criteria. Bottas was able to push Hamilton without hitting him. Your analytical ability is nonexistent. What you want is detrimental to a team. Bottas has 2 DNFs to Hamiltons 0 and still has 70% the points. The 11th place from tyre failure was a DNF for all intents and purposes. Verstappen could wipe out his talent advantage with a shunt.

    • @Charles Gillespie when he said they always race me so hard i got so confused but now that i think about it i think he must have meant they do dangerous moves.....surely he does not expect them to make it easy.....i think the way he looks at it is that if Max came to overtake those guys they would accept he is in a faster car and do minimum defending so that they dont lose too much time delaying the inevitable but because he is driving it they treat him like he is part of the midfielder "which he is by the way" so they race him tooth and nail.

    • @Charles Gillespie looks like Alex is in "a downfall" and is too polite in his racingcraft.The momemt with Kyviat,after his first pitsstop where he was penalized with a penalty of 5 seconds,was significant.He didn't left space there. I think his mental problems are growing and that is quite sad,because he's such a nice person.

    • F1 Racing have to say I’ve been rooting for Albon. But I was very concerned (disappointed?) to hear him on the radio say something like, “They always race me so hard” about (I think) Gasly... sounded like he really isn’t ready for that seat after all.

  • At the time Schumacher set this record I thought it would stand for a long time because I didn't think we'd see the combination of generational talent in both driver and team get together from the ground up for such a long run of dominance. How little I knew, the only thing that looks like it can stop Mercedes at this point is boredom. Lewis hitting 100 victories seems all but assured at this point even if Toto leaves.

  • A very good video as always, by far some of the most insightful content on the sport - thank you! I always thought that given how Hamilton performed in his rookie season and performances before F1 clearly show that hamilton is one of the greatest drivers ever and reaching Schumacher’s record is an unbelievable achievement. Schumacher beyond being an excellent driver also shaped the sport and interactions of team and driver - one could argue the greatest contribution. Also, what a nice gift from the Schumacher family, a wonderful touch!

  • Maybe Lewis achievements could have been more appreciated if Formula One was more pure it means : no DRS , less racing in shit circuits per year and had spending more time driving less capable cars and driving beside pure stars not journeyman cause fact is he couldn’t beat Button, Rosberg and Alonso, but reflects a generation of decadence in formula one due to fact that millennials appreciate Motorsport in a different way- a gay way for us - so Lewis is the millennials champ no doubt and that’s why he’ll never equals Clark, Fangio, Prost , Schumacher and of course Ayrton da Silva.

  • Congrats to Lewis on Equaling Michael's Record. I agree with the driver of the day being Nico. From starting last to having a good race to coming in the points and not to mention being not race fit is a big deal. If it wasn't Nico then definitely Danny Ric. As for the Kimi Incident I agree with the penalty as he under steered into Russell when he applied the brakes. I think that makes all the difference in the penalty. Of course the type of corner, race conditions and how much the drivers are fighting makes all the difference in these type of things. I guess they stewards looked and ask if Kimi could have avoided that and most would agree that the answer is yes.
