Formula 1 statistics rather mirror the endeavour itself - the emotion of sporting success and human achievement matched with cold, hard facts.
It's the former that makes motorsport so interesting, but the latter that sums up success. It often does this distortedly - given opposition level, strike rate and car quality must be added for consideration of 'greatness'.
Nevertheless, Lewis Hamilton's triumph in the Eifel Grand Prix put him level with Michael Schumacher at the top of F1's all-time win list, with 91 apiece. It's the achievement we will consider - and whether it will ever be scored again.
