The Englishman is now out on his own at the head of the sport's all-time winners' table after taking 92nd victory in a dominant showing at the Portuguese GP, brilliantly recovering from losing ground in the early laps to win by almost half a minute from team-mate Valtteri Bottas.

In an absorbing post-race interview with Sky Sports F1 - which can be viewed in full in the video at the top of the page - Hamilton said he was grateful for the historic success.

"I feel fantastic. Very humbled," said Hamilton, who had tied Michael Schumacher's long-standing mark of 91 wins at the previous race in Germany.

"Very difficult to explain the feeling. I feel young, I feel energised. And, of course, I'm very grateful. I'm constantly thinking of the guys I'm working with."

His landmark 92nd success came in his 14th season, with the vastly-experienced 35-year-old within touching distance of a Schumacher-equalling seventh championship. 77 points ahead, Hamilton could clinch that historic title as early as the Turkish GP on November 15.

Now holding all the sport's other big winning records, a record-matching seventh title would see Hamilton supplant Schumacher as the most successful driver of all time.

But while the relentless nature of his success with Mercedes means there has been a certain inevitably over the identity of F1's race winner in recent seasons, the Englishman says he still experiences plenty of doubts and uncertainties ahead of every start.

"Each race - and each race win particularly - there have been certain characteristics, a different journey, each time," explained Hamilton, who appeared in his 262nd Grand Prix on Sunday.

"The crazy thing about this is that I would have thought I would get used to things. But I was getting ready, getting my helmet on in the garage today - nerves, uncertainty. Have I remembered my strategy? Have I remembered my switch settings?

"You wake up on a Sunday and every Sunday you feel different. It's hard to register - am I good today? There are days I'm getting in the car on the grid and I'm like 'I don't feel good, this is not going to go well' then I drive the best ever.

"Then I have days that I feel really good and it's not so good. So you never know what to expect but all I try to do is by preparing myself the best way I can."

Praising the Mercedes team's role in his achievements, Hamilton said: "Even though I've had all the success, I study more than I've ever studied. I practice multiple things, that's why you're seeing certain things done as consistent as they are.

"Also I work with incredible people. They really, really are phenomenal.

"You look at the reliability I've had [one DNF in the last 79 races and none in the last 45] - that's no coincidence. That's done from the guys really not taking no for an answer and people not sitting back on success, and continuing to develop together."

Speaking in the post-race pen, Hamilton said: "All these things don't come easy so it's like the first time every time. That's why I really love doing what I do. To be able to do it at the level that I was able to do it today - of course I didn't know that was going to happen, but I pushed for that.

"Even though I fell back to third I kept believing - 'it's good, I'm going to get back, there's a long way to go'.

"I wish there were more cars to race later on in the race but I was pretty on it today."
