Sunday proved to be a record-breaking result for Lewis in a way he hadn't expected. He's now surpassed the legendary Michael Schumacher as the driver with the most F1 wins from pole position, moving to 41 with his incredible drive in Spain.
"It's still very surreal," Lewis said, when he was told about the new record. "It just doesn't register because I remember like it was yesterday, sitting at home, playing this computer game as Michael!
"There was this game where you could do the entire race weekend on the computer. I didn't have a steering wheel, I did it on two keys and I remember playing as Michael.
"So, it just still is very, very surreal to think that every now and then I keep coming up against Michael in terms of records and it reminds me of what a great he was.
"It's always an honour when his name and mine are brought up at the same time."
