Lewis Hamilton has matched Michael Schumacher's record of 91 all-time Formula One race victories.

The Mercedes driver won the Eifel Grand Prix in Germany, finishing ahead of Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo (Renault).

Hamilton had been outmuscled by his teammate Valtteri Bottas at the start of the race, but passed the Finn on Lap 13 of 60, before a loss of power forced Bottas into retirement six laps later. 

The British driver's lead in the championship over Bottas is now 69 points.
