Following Lewis Hamilton 's sealing of his fifth world championship in the Mexican Grand Prix, the Autosport team assesses the claims of his old rival Nico Rosberg that he can now realistically target beating Michael Schumacher 's records of seven world titles and 91 grand prix wins .

Hamilton admits that he recently saw the Schumacher video from Monza again. "And I still remember it myself," he says. "I'm sure he didn't talk about his feelings afterwards, why it came to this moment. But of course there is a lot of emotion involved with us racing drivers, with so much love from the fans and so much pressure."

"I don't know why I am the way I am - but numbers are not what I focus on. For me it's a weekend like any other. I want to beat Valtteri and all the other drivers and I know how difficult it is that will. I don't even deal with anything else. Really, "assures the 35-year-old.

And asked if Schumacher 's records were now in sight for Hamilton , Brawn told Sky Sports News: "I think they are. "When that happened I couldn' t imagine it being beaten, but looking at the way that Lewis is performing [they could be]." Hamilton has joined Schumacher in an exclusive club of drivers

Schumacher's situation 20 years ago was also different in that the German was repeatedly infected with Senna in his early years. In doing so, he felt inwardly deep admiration for his skills. And when Senna died in Imola in 1994, the whole world was looking forward to the generation duel for the world title - which never happened.

Schumacher does not have such a meaning in Hamilton's life. The Mercedes driver has no contact with the family, only sometimes with "Schumi's" son Mick, who will probably also drive Formula 1 in 2021. The first memory of Schumacher: "When he won Imola and Ayrton died." A race in which many accused the rising star of impiety.

Hamilton did not enter Formula 1 until 2007, the year after Schumacher's resignation.

The seven-time world champion, it is said, would have liked to continue.

"I never really had a relationship with him," says Hamilton of Schumacher. "I met him for the first time on the kart track in Kerpen. Even back then, it was something special to drive on the same track as him as a child. I even spoke to him very briefly, but I don't know what about. It was a long time ago . "

Hamilton means the 2001 Kart World Championship on October 28, 2001, when the then four-time world champion made fun of competing with the stars of the future shortly after the end of the season. Marco Ardigo won the race ahead of another Italian, Sauro Cesetti. Schumacher was third. P7, 16.4 seconds behind: a 15-year-old boy named Lewis Hamilton.

In the list of results from back then, some names appear that are still known today. Nico Rosberg, for example, who lost the battle for the podium against Schumacher by 0.9 seconds, or Loic Duval (9th), a later Le Mans winner and endurance world champion. Giedo van der Garde (25th), Vitantonio Liuzzi (27th), Maximilian Götz (32nd) - all talents who later had a career.

A story that made his eyes light up briefly. But Hamilton is pretty sober when he talks about Schumacher. He and his father Anthony, as you know, were never big Schumacher fans. And Hamilton says, "Other than that, I never had any in-depth conversation or anything with him." It was always just "pure admiration".

What the record of 91 wins would mean to him "I don't know," says Hamilton. "I honestly don't know what to say about that." However, he is relatively certain that it will come to that at some point: "Sooner or later it will happen. I don't intend to stop too soon."

critics rate the record if it should break it, albeit with skepticism.

When people talk about the glamorous Mercedes years, he doesn't put himself in the foreground: "I'm just a small link in the chain and would never say that it's all up to me."

"So many people work so hard together all the time, and I'm immensely grateful for that. It's a great privilege - and the best part of this job. Besides being able to drive this rocket!" Hamilton also mentions that he was fully involved in certain things from day one: "I was able to help the team there."

"Valtteri and I are helping to steer this powerful group of innovators in the direction that works best for us," he says - and adds: "There have been many races in which we have been behind the Red Bulls or Ferraris We won anyway. Thanks to great communication. And the restless pursuit of perfection that Toto always talks about. "
