Hamilton's latest podium puts him on the way to unique record

Seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton could achieve a feat that has never been recorded in Formula 1 history this season.

Lewis Hamilton's latest podium at the Canadian Grand Prix adds to his list of achievements at some of his most dominant tracks in Formula 1.

The list shows all circuits where he has scored 10 or more podiums throughout his F1 career, with his latest in Canada being his 194th since joining the grid in 2007.

Unsurprisingly, the home of the British Grand Prix, Silverstone, is his most successful circuit at 13 podiums, with the Hungaroring (the track where he scored his first Mercedes win) joint second on the list with Bahrain and Barcelona.

The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, the scene of Hamilton's first F1 victory in 2007, is now at 10 podiums with his second place on Sunday. Only Albert Park in Australia, Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi and Spa Francorchamps in Belgium have equalled this feat.

With 14 races still to go in 2023, it is entirely possible that Hamilton could hit 200 podiums at some point this season, which would make him the first driver to do so in F1 history.

Red Bull also reached 100 race wins with Max Verstappen's victory in Montreal, while legendary F1 car designer Adrian Newey also hit a milestone of 200 victories for machines he has helped to create.
