Insane numbers for Gasly’s win
Pierre Gasly is the 109th winner in Formula 1 history. Only Australia had to wait longer to win than France. Third youngest podium ever.
+++ Nobody expected this victory: Pierre Gasly got the first GP success of his career and is the 109th winner of a world championship run.
+++ Gasly is the 13th Formula 1 winner from France. Alain Prost (51), René Arnoux (7), Jacques Laffite (6), Didier Pironi (3), Maurice Trintignant (2), Patrick Depailler (2), Jean-Pierre Jabouille (2), Patrick Tambay ( 2), François Cevert (1), Jean-Pierre Beltoise (1), Jean Alesi (1), Olivier Panis (1) and Pierre Gasly (1) to 80 victories. This makes France the fourth most successful Formula 1 nation behind Great Britain (293), Germany (179) and Brazil (101).
Hamilton’s winning streak is broken
+++ For Alpha Tauri it is the first victory under this name (35 different manufacturers have won a World Championship run with it), but the second for the racing team itself. Twelve years have passed since Sebastian Vettel’s victory at the Italian GP 2008. Only the Ligier team had to wait longer for a triumph – 14 years passed between Canada 1981 (Jacques Laffite) and Monaco 1996 (Panis). Mercedes even had to wait 56 years between Italy in 1955 (Juan-Manuel Fangio) and China in 2012 (Nico Rosberg), but for many years it was not in Formula 1 at all.
