Lewis Hamilton matched Michael Schumacher’s record of 91 wins in Formula One with a victory Sunday in the Eifel Grand Prix in Nurburg, Germany, as he took another stride toward his seventh championship title.

Hamilton started behind his Mercedes teammate, Valtteri Bottas, but took the lead when the Finn ran wide on Lap 13. Bottas retired because of a car problem five laps later. Hamilton comfortably held off Max Verstappen of Red Bull after a safety car bunched up the pack late in the race.

Hamilton took the win by nearly five seconds from Verstappen, with Daniel Ricciardo taking third in Renault’s first podium finish since 2011. Hamilton now leads Bottas by 69 points with six races to go.
