The 44 victories 44


Lewis Hamilton he started racing in karting with the number 44 and with the same number he won his first championship of the specialty. That’s why, when it was decided to adopt a fixed system of numbers for each pilot of Formula 1, champion English chose it as their reference number which, with the passage of time, has become a badge more than your image, that not even he wanted to change after becoming champion in 2014, discarding the possibility of using the number 1.

Hamilton is, currently, the third rider with most wins in history, only surpassed by Michael Schumacher and Alain Prost, with 91 and 51 victories, respectively.

The Mercedes driver has managed to cross the finish line first in the 25,43% of the occasions in which it has participated, getting 21 of them with McLaren and the rest with the German team. Hungaroring, Shanghai and Montreal are the circuits that most times I have seen it climb to the top of the podium on four occasions.
