In Thursday’s Press Conference at the Canadian GP, Lewis Hamilton was asked whether he thought Max Verstappen could beat his win record of 103 F1 victories.
“He’s got a very long career ahead of him so absolutely,” Hamilton said when asked about Verstappen’s chances of eclipsing his tally of race wins. “Ultimately records are there to be broken.
“We’ve got to work harder to continue to extend it and, at least within the last period of time of my career, I hope we get to have some more close racing.”
Looking at the wins by a given age, Verstappen could certainly destroy Hamilton’s record unless he retires at 30 like he says he might.
