Another record awaits Schumi

Another record awaits Schumi

Michael Schumacher needs two laps on Sunday at the United States GP to call another record his own, that of most racing kilometres in the sport.

The Mercedes driver Schumacher has driven 80 059 kilometres and is just seven shy of the record 80 067km Brazil's Rubens Barrichello achieved in his career.

Retirement-bound Schumacher will take the record if he completes the first two laps on the 5.516km Circuit of the Americas. If he doesn't, he gets another chance the following week at the season-ender in Brazil.

Schumacher, who raced between 1991 and 2006 and returned in 2010, owns several F1 records inclusing most World titles (seven), race wins (91) and pole positions (68).
