Perez now has […]

Every occasion (since 2000 at least) in which qualifying (or part of) has been postponed until Sunday has seen a German driver take pole.
Fewest finishers since Australia (11).
Under the 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 […]

First time Ricciardo has officially finished 2nd.
Force India’s first non-mechanical DNF this season.
First DNF for Williams this season (although they also had Bottas’ DNS in Australia). All teams have now […]
First time since 2005 that Massa has started somewhere other than 3rd, 4rd or 6th at Monza. Every year since 2008 (excluding his absence in 2009) has seen him finish in one of those 3 positions (prior to 2008 he […]
paulgilb commented on the post, Hamilton matches Senna’s podium tally as Vettel’s points streak ends 3 months ago
2 of the 3 drivers on the podium were involved in first-laps pile-ups in both 2009 and 2012 and also failed to finish in 2014.
3 of the 4 longest points-scoring streaks have come to end in Belgium (Alonso in […]
Raikkonen retired from the lead in both San Marino 2005 and Germany 2005 (as well as the already-mentioned Europe 2005), with Alonso taking the win on both occasions.
Raikkonen himself also inherited a win in Canada 2005 after Fisichella broke down, Alonso hit the wall, and Montoya was black-flagged.
Alonso also inherited Bahrain 2010 when…[Read more]

Tracks where Vettel has raced but not won: Red Bull Ring, Magny-Cours, Hockenheim, Sochi, Indianapolis.
Having started on pole, Hamilton finished 3 places lower than he managed last year starting from the […]
Had feared this was coming. Really sad that he was never able to witness his team outlasting Caterham thanks to his Monaco result.
First time Hamilton has won at Silverstone having not scored pole there the previous year.
10th consecutive season in which Massa has led at least 1 lap.
Hamilton already has more points this year than he […]
Notice that Hamilton first took the lead when he came into the pits (due to the pit entry being shorter than the track, Hamilton actually crossed the start/finish line before Massa despite being behind him) – so […]
