Hungarian Grand Prix stats and facts

Jenson Button’s 200th Grand Prix was most certainly a successful one, granting him his 2nd victory of the season. Here are the statistics from last weekend:

  • The Hungarian Grand Prix saw 88 pit stops in total – a new F1 record.
  • After Nick Heidfeld’s exhaust failure and Vitaly Petrov’s slow pit stop, Renault failed to score a single point in a race for the first time since the 2010 Japanese Grand Prix, where both cars retired within several laps of the start.
  • Paul di Resta took his best career result finish with 7th place.
  • Button has become the 11th driver in F1 history to participate in 200 races or more. Currently Rubens Barrichello is the only driver above 300.
  • Jenson’s 11th Grand Prix win is as many as Jacques Villeneuve, Rubens Barrichello and Felipe Massa.
  • Massa took his 14th fastest lap, his first since Australia this year.
  • It was the 100th Grand Prix event for Toro Rosso, the current V8 engine formula, and Nico Rosberg.
  • With Felipe Massa losing 2 places at the first corner, the only driver who has never lost a place on the first lap at any race in 2011 is Narain Karthikeyan.
  • Sebastian Vettel’s 23rd pole position is only one off Niki Lauda and Nelson Piquet. However, his starts-to-win ratio is nearly 3 times higher than either of these two drivers.
  • Red Bull have taken their 13th podium finish in a row, a feat which only 5 teams have ever beaten. The record is 53 by Ferrari, from Malaysia 1999 to Japan 2002. The team have also taken the last 12 pole positions in a row.
