It has taken 14 years and 263 races for Lewis Hamilton to match Michael Schumacher's tally of 91 world championship Formula 1 victories. It's a benchmark few drivers have held over the years, but those that have topped the list have a special place in motorsport history.
Number of wins is, of course, not the only (or even best) way of assessing drivers. Strike rates, the level of opposition and the machinery at a driver's disposal are just some of the factors that need to be considered for a true picture.
But it is safe to say that the names who have held the record are among the greatest F1 has seen and now seems the right time to look at how the mark has been pushed up over the past seven decades.
