At the end of 2013 with Red Bull having had an incredible 4 year run of double championships, if anyone had suggested someone other than Vettel would have a real shot at the Schumacher records they would have been laughed at. Fast forward to today and we see Ferrari, Red Bull and now Mercedes have been able to string together a long run of championship years, so it's not as uncommon as we'd like to think. Given were we are today, I'm curious if you guys think that one, both or neither of Schumacher's records are safe.
Both Vettel and Hamilton potentially have 5 racing years left in them, so they're both within immediate consideration as candidates to be the ones that do it. That being said, we know very well that nothing is assured in the sport and given the changes next year and again in 2021 with the scheduled PU changes, the likelihood of performance bunching teams together is greater than the likelihood of one team continuing to dominate so it's all very much up in the air.
Personally I think the 91 race win record is on much shakier ground than the 7 world titles, with 21 races on the calendar. Curious to see what the general consensus is.
Countdown to 91: 8 more victories ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
