Schumacher recorded 68 pole positions from 308 races during his career. However, Hamilton is in a league of his own with 87 poles from 247 races. After clinching the 2019 Drivers' Championship, Lewis Hamilton is now only one title away from Michael Schumacher's all-time record of seven. Schumacher's benchmark, set in 2004 at the height of his and Ferrari's domination of F1, was at the time considered somewhat insurmountable, given no driver had ever won more than five titles up to that point. But, 15 years on, Hamilton has moved just one away from the record.

"I'm filled with so much emotion. It's an honour to be up here with those greats," said Hamilton, who tied Juan-Manuel Fangio's five titles in 2018. So, will he now go on to beat the great Schumacher in the years ahead before he retires? "I just didn't pull the laps out together today and clearly the car had the capability to be on the front row and I just didn't do it today, so it was my fault, but I'll try and rectify it tomorrow." Whatever Hamilton does, it looks to be an interesting race, with three different teams in the top three cars and, hopefully, some divergent strategies in the race. Realistically there is very little chance of Hamilton not winning the title today but it will be interesting to see his charge from fifth on the grid and to see if Bottas can end the season in style.

Today could well be the day that Lewis Hamilton secures his sixth drivers' title at the US Grand Prix. You can find out with an F1 live stream of the event from wherever you are. The US Grand Prix starts Sunday, November 3 at 1.10pm local time. The United States Grand Prix was voted the best race of 2018 on the official F1 site. As if that wasn't enough to set expectations high for 2019, this could be the race that lets Hamilton take his sixth title, making him an elite driving legend.

This is going to be an intense race. Last year saw Kimi Raikkonen win this race for Ferrari but the four years before that were all Hamilton wins, with Vettel before that in 2013. The year before that, in 2012, Vettel set the track lap record at 1:39.347, but Hamilton ultimately won that race, too! Lewis Hamilton - at 363 points - now has a 74-point lead lead over teammate Valtteri Bottas, with only three races and a total of 78 points still available to any one driver. All that means that all Hamilton has to do at Austin is get eighth place or better and he's won the title, regardless of Bottas' finishing position. If Bottas doesn't win this race then Hamilton will be crowned champion, regardless of his finishing position.
