Alonso, historical record for the greatest number of F1 races

Alonso is contesting his 19th season in Formula 1, and this Sunday at the 2022 Italian GP, despite the abandonment, he has reached Kimi Raikkonen’s historical record as a driver with the highest number of races in the highest category.

Since that distant 2001 Australian GP , until this Sunday, Fernando Alonso has participated in no less than 350 races, more than any other driver, and will soon break the tie with Raikkonen to lead the statistics alone.

Already in 2021, Alonso surpassed Rubens Barrichello’s 323 races, and in this 2022 he reaches and leaves Raikkonen behind. Where will you leave your mark?

The Spaniard, although he admitted that right now he does not think too much about the race record and that he will surely value it more over time, said that he will also reach the 400. After finishing this course, he has a contract for 2023 and 2024 with Aston Martin, so that in addition to the six appointments that remain of this course, it could reach at least 402.

Since his return to F1 in 2021 after the hiatus he took between 2018 and 2020, Alonso has been racking up records. Without going any further, this season he became the driver with the most laps completed in F1 (also beating Raikkonen), the driver with the most kilometers traveled in F1 (once again, beating Raikkonen), the driver with the most laps completed in the Monaco GP (leaving Graham Hill behind) and the driver with the longest time between his first and last race in F1, surpassing the 21 years and 3 months that separated Michael Schumacher’s debut and farewell.

See below the list of drivers with the highest number of races in Formula 1.
