Top 10 stats ahead of the British Grand Prix – Lewis Hamilton’s impressive home record


1. The Silverstone race has only been won twice from outside the front row 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 racing start for Red Bull, joining a select group of drivers to have achieved this milestone with a 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 straight races in his career.

4. Red Bull’s incredible winning streak gives them serious chances to break the record for most consecutive wins by a constructor. They have already racked up ten straight wins and are one win away from matching McLaren’s record of 11 straight wins set in 1988.

5. If both Red Bull drivers secured a podium result at Silverstone, it would be the team’s 250th podium finish in Formula 1. They became just the fifth team to do so, after Ferrari, McLaren, Williams and Mercedes.

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

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

8. There has been a Mercedes car on the podium in each of the last 11 races at Silverstone

9. Another win this Sunday could see him become the first driver to win nine straight races at a circuit. That would also put him level with Michael Schumacher (9 in Germany) when it comes to most wins on home soil.

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