F1: Statistics Eifel-GP: Hülkenberg is as good at this as Vettel

Hulkenberg is as good at this as Vettel

History was made at the 2020 Eifel GP: Lewis Hamilton equalized Michael Schumacher’s all-time record. More crazy numbers.

+++ Lewis Hamilton clinched the 91st victory in the 261st race of his Formula 1 career. The previous sole record holder, Michael Schumacher, only needed 247 races. Nevertheless, Hamilton has a better win rate (34.87 percent) than Schumi (29.64 percent), which was mainly due to Schumacher’s winless Mercedes comeback from 2010 to 2012.
+++ Daniel Ricciardo took the 30th podium of his Formula 1 career, 46 races after his last podium visit so far – as the winner of the Monaco GP 2018 in the Red Bull-Renault.
+++ For Renault it was the first podium since Nick Heidfeld’s third place at the 2011 Malaysia GP. In the meantime, however, the team was called Lotus. The last Lotus podium to date was secured by Romain Grosjean as third at the 2015 Belgian GP.
+++ With Mercedes (17), Red Bull (9), Ferrari (2), McLaren (2), Alpha Tauri (1), Racing Point (1) and Renault (1), seven teams have it all this season Made the podium – as many as last 2012 (with Ferrari, Red Bull, McLaren, Lotus, Sauber, Mercedes and Williams). Only Alfa Romeo, Haas and Williams have not yet been part of the Formula 1 award ceremony.

Russell again did not get into the points

+++ The Alpha Tauri team has now made it into the points for the eighth time in a row – more than ever since the beginning of the team’s history as Minardi in 1985!

+++ Nico Hülkenberg crossed the finish line in eighth place in his lightning comeback and thus achieved the second top 8 finish of the season after seventh place at the anniversary GP in Silverstone. He was in the top 8 as often as Sebastian Vettel (sixth in Hungary, seventh in Spain).
+++ George Russell has never lost a qualifying duel against his teammate (2019 Robert Kubica, 2020 Nicholas Latifi) in his 32 Formula 1 races. But the Briton has never scored a World Cup point either. Only four drivers have completed more Formula 1 races without ever scoring points: Luca Badoer (51 races), Charles Pic (39), Max Chilton (35) and Brett Lunger (34). Should Russell ever score a point in his Formula 1 career, only two drivers would have needed more Grands Prix to get to the first point: Nicolas Larini (44) and Jonathan Palmer (41).
