Twitter Reacts as Lewis Hamilton Equals Michael Schumacher’s Pole Position Record

Twitter Reacts as Lewis Hamilton Equals Michael Schumacher’s Pole Position Record




On Saturday, the second half of the Formula One season kicked off at the iconic Spa Francorchamps circuit in Belgium. Lewis Hamilton needed to score pole position to equal Michael Schumacher’s record of 68 poles. He did just that in front of thousands of spectators. Twitter also saluted the triple world champion for achieving this feat.





The British driver, on a run of remarkable success with Mercedes that has included two titles, did so with a lap the seven-times world champion would have recognised as worthy of matching his total. Schumacher took his first F1 win at Spa in 1992 and his family sent their congratulations to Hamilton.

“It is definitely a special day,” he said. “I remember coming here in 1996 for my first grand prix and watching Michael come out of turn one, and the vibration of the engine shook my rib cage. It was incredible. That is when my love for the sport took another step.

“To think I have equalled him on poles is very surreal and a humbling experience, knowing Michael is such a legend. It is a very special feat he achieved and I feel very proud to be up there with him.”
