Laurence Edmondson explains why Lewis Hamilton's Hungarian Grand Prix win was technically brilliant. (0:56)

Lewis Hamilton could match Michael Schumacher's record of 91 Formula One victories at the Italian Grand Prix and surpass it at Ferrari's 1,000th race, set to be held at a circuit owned by the Italian team.

Hamilton has won three races in a row -- the Styrian Grand Prix, the Hungarian Grand Prix and the British Grand Prix. His win at Silverstone was the 87th of his career.

Hamilton is second on the all-time winners list behind Schumacher, who claimed the majority of his wins and five of his seven championships for Ferrari between 1996 and 2006. H

As it stands, F1's season continues with:

  • 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, Silverstone, Aug.10

  • Spanish Grand Prix, Barcelona, Aug. 17

  • Belgian Grand Prix, Spa-Francorchamps, Aug. 30

  • Italian Grand Prix, Monza, Sept. 6

  • Grand Prix of Tuscany, Mugello, Sept. 13

Were Hamilton win all those races, he would match Schumacher at Monza and then claim a record-breaking 92nd at the Mugello circuit.

Such a streak would require Hamilton to enter uncharted territory, as it would require eight wins in a row. Hamilton has never won more than five races in a row.

Sebastian Vettel won a record nine straight during his dominant 2013 campaign for Red Bull.
