With the value of winning races such an explosive issue at the moment I thought it would be a good idea to revise a post I first did two years ago.

Heading into the 2007, I thought it would be interesting to see how long ago it was since each driver on the grid last won a race.

Some of them, of course, have never won an F1 race – in fact one of them hasn’t won an international motor race since before the new millennium…
