A few statistics for you all, because I’m bored:
- Hollis Graham and William Ingram became the most common pairing on the podium last race, having appeared together up there 3 times.
- Silverstone not only produced our 9th different winner, but also our 8th different driver on pole position. The only driver to have done so more than once is Johnny Kingshark.
- The Dutch GP is the only race to date that has not featured a British driver on the podium.
- Non-British drivers are leading the way in qualifying, beating them 7-2 (Pole positions), but the racing is much closer, with Non-Brits having scored 5 wins to 4.
- McLaren and Red Bull remain the only teams to have scored victories with both drivers (or in McLaren’s case – 3)
- Hollis Graham, William Ingram and Robert Mathershaw all have finished second twice each, whilst Bradley Downton leads the way with third places with 3.
- Lotus lead the way in number of podiums with 7, all of which were consecutive from the Chinese to the Mexican Grand Prix. McLaren are just behind on 6, with Red Bull on 5 and Ferrari on 4. This includes wins. Despite this, Jamie Franklin has failed to get on the podium since his win in Spain, which is 5 races.
- The longest podium drought so far has been 6 races, starting after Felipe Bomeny’s third place in Australia and ending with his second place at the Dutch GP.
