The top three in the Bahrain Grand Prix was the same as we had last year – something which very rarely happens in F1. Here are the top five stats from last weekend’s race.
Podium déjà vu
The 2013 Bahrain Grand Prix had something very unusual in common with the 1999 Spanish Grand Prix and the 1965 British Grand Prix.
All three saw the exact same podium as they had at the previous race one year before:
|1964 and 1965 British Grands Prix||Jim Clark||Graham Hill||John Surtees|
|1998 and 1999 Spanish Grands Prix||Mika Hakkinen||David Coulthard||Michael Schumacher|
|2012 and 2013 Bahrain Grands Prix||Sebastian Vettel||Kimi Raikkonen||Romain Grosjean|
Mercedes match BRM and Cooper
Mercedes scored back-to-back pole positions for the first time since 1955.
Nico Rosberg gave them their 11th pole, putting them level with former teams BRM and Cooper.
Raikkonen keeps on scoring
Kimi Raikkonen is drawing ever closer to that record for most consecutive points scores. Bahrain was his 21st in a row, leaving him three short of Michael Schumacher’s record.
Red Bull in the top five…
Red Bull are now the fifth most successful Formula One team of all time having scored their 36th win last weekend. Ferrari, McLaren, Williams and Lotus lie ahead of them – they need another 45 to draw level with the latter in fourth place.
…and Vettel in the top six
This was Sebastian Vettel’s 28th career win meaning he has won more races than any F1 driver bar Michael Schumacher, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell – and Fernando Alonso.
