Lewis Hamilton came out on top in Sunday's Portuguese Grand Prix finishing ahead of rival Max Verstappen and teammate Valtteri Bottas, but what you may not know is that the trio broke an F1 record in the process.
The three drivers started in the top three positions for the race in Portimao, with the Finn getting the better of Hamilton by 0.007s in qualifying. However in the race Bottas couldn't hold off either Hamilton or Verstappen, with the two championship challengers finishing in the top two spots.
Regardless, the trio of Hamilton, Verstappen and Bottas finished on the podium for the 15th time, setting a new F1 record for the most recurring podium trio. They now stand alone, beating the previous record held by Hamilton, Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel at 14.
There were some individual highlights for the three drivers as well as Hamilton has now led the drivers' championship for 123 races in his career, adding to the record he previously broke in Imola. Sunday's race was also the fourth consecutive time Lewis has won when starting from second on the grid.
As for Verstappen, 2021 is now his best start to an F1 season ever thanks to a victory in Imola and second place finishes in Bahrain and Portugal.
Meanwhile Bottas, who only has one win in his last 19 races, did manage to lead his first laps of the 2021 season, though he has yet to finish higher than third.
