Top 10 stats before the British Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton’s impressive home record – News Block

1. The Silverstone race has been won from outside the front row just twice in the hybrid era: LewisHamilton (from P6 in 2014) and Max Verstappen (from P4 in 2020).

2. Max Verstappen is set to make his 150th race for Red Bull, joining a select group of drivers to have achieved this milestone with one team: David Coulthard (150 with McLaren), Kimi Raikkonen (151 with Ferrari), Michael Schumacher (179 with Ferrari) and Lewis Hamilton (209 with Mercedes).

3. The reigning champion has won the last five rounds (a personal best) and has never won six consecutive races in his career.

4. Red Bull’s incredible winning streak puts them in a serious fight to break the record for most consecutive wins by a manufacturer. They have already taken ten wins in a row and are just one win away from matching McLaren’s record of 11 wins in a row set in 1988.

5. If both Red Bull drivers score a podium finish at Silverstone, it would be the team’s 250th podium finish in F1. They would become the fifth team to do so after Ferrari, McLaren, Williams and Mercedes.

6. Ferrari is the most successful constructor on British soil, with 16 pole positions and 18 wins here.

7. No driver has taken more wins at this venue than local hero Lewis Hamilton – 8 times.

8. A Mercedes car has finished on the podium places in each of the last 11 races at Silverstone.

9. One more win this Sunday could make him the first driver to win at a track nine separate times. He would also put him on par with Michael Schumacher (9 in Germany) for the most wins on his home soil.

10. Nico Hulkenberg has scored points in the last eight British races he has started since 2013.
