Changes to history books following Mark Webber’s German GP win

Mark Webber celebrating his first F1 win

Mark Webber finally has an F1 race win under his belt, let’s have a look how his German GP win changed the F1 statistics:

Mark Webber has officially become the driver with most F1 races before first win. Here is how the table looks now:

1. Mark Webber – 130th race
2. Rubens Barrichello – 123rd race
3. Jarno Trulli – 119th race
4. Jenson Button – 113th race
5. Giancarlo Fisichella – 110th race
6. Mika Hakkinen – 96th race

Interesting that current F1 drivers make up the top 5 …

Let’s have a look who has the best chance to take away Mark Webber’s top spot. Here are the current F1 drivers without a race win after Webber’s name disappeared from this list:


1. Nick Heidfeld – 159 races
2. Nico Rosberg – 62 races
3. Adrian Sutil – 44 races
4. Timo Glock – 31 races
5. Kazuki Nakajima – 28 races
6. Nelson Piquet – 27 races
7. Sebastien Buemi – 9 races

Nick Heidfeld first win would put him firmly in the lead in the driver with most F1 races before first win table. He has also another option – to overtake Andrea de Cesaris who currently is the all time driver with most F1 starts without a win (208).

There has been a lot of comparing Mark Webber to Nigel Mansell since Webber’s win. But actually it is Nico Rosberg who is challenging Mansell’s place in the history books. It took Nigel Mansell 72 races to win his first, Nico Rosberg is on 62 at the moment.

The other interesting number is that currently there are 12 race winners on 2009 Formula 1 grid – Alonso (21), Raikkonen (17), Massa (11), Barrichello (9), Hamilton (9), Button (7), Fisichella (3), Vettel (3), Trulli (1), Kubica (1), Kovalainen (1), Webber (1). I am not sure when was the last time there were so many race winners competing in F1 championship at the same time …

    wow… this means that 60% of the current f1 drivers already won a race

    Not the best record to hold on too, but at least he got a race win!

    Of course better than being the driver to race the most without ever winning isn’t it?

    Is quite interesting to see so many different drivers on the grid who have won races in Formula One, would think it would definitely be a chance of being more than any other season, though i don’t know!

    BMW will have to step it up in order for Nick to accomplish this feat…or he would have to go to another team.Nick is my favorite driver but,with all the other outstanding drivers out there now I don’t think other teams will be after him.
