Formula 1 'stings' Hamilton with a record of Alonso that he has not been able to beat

Although Lewis Hamilton is the record man in Formula 1, he still has some marks to beat. One of them, the one with the best percentage of victories achieved starting from pole, a record that is favorable to Fernando Alonso.According to recently recalled Formula 1, the Spanish driver has won 63.6% of the races in which he started from the first position. Second in this classification is Hamilton with a percentage of 59%. The Briton has surpassed Michael Schumacher, who is third with 58.8% victories achieved starting from pole; while Alain Prost, with a 54.6, and Sebastian Vettel, with a 54.4, complete the Top-5. The latter, like Lewis Hamilton, remains active, so both threaten the record of a Fernando Alonso who accumulates eight years without winning in Formula 1. If he does it again, the Asturian will achieve a record that nobody has achieved in the Formula 1. And it is that the greatest drought between one victory and another is for Pastrese, who after winning in South Africa 1983, did it again in San Marino 1990. In recent history, Kimi Raikkonen won in the United States in 2018, something he did not do from Australia 2013. The records Alonso wants to break Precisely the Finnish driver has two records in Formula 1 that Fernando Alonso aspires to break. Raikkonen is the rider who has contested the most Grands Prix with a total of 336 to 322 for Rubens Barrichello and 317 for Oviedo. It should be noted that Fernando Alonso signed with Alpine until 2022 with an option for a third year. Lewis Hamilton, who is seventh in this classification with a total of 270 Grand Prix contested, only has a contract with Mercedes until the end of the season. Kimi Raikkonen also holds the record of being the driver who has started the most Grand Prix with a total of 332 careers.They are also followed in this classification by Barrichello with 322 and Fernando Alonso with 318. Age and Fernando AlonsoFernando Alonso also wants to join the select club of drivers who have returned to be world champions after having been away from Formula 1. This is something that only Niki Lauda and Alain Prost have achieved. Although both did it with winning cars, Fernando Alonso will have to wait to see if the regulation change is favorable to Alpine. Curiously, Alain Prost, who is an advisor to the French team, was optimistic about it: “I don’t see anyone beating Mercedes in 2021; in 2022, maybe Alpine and Alonso. ”It should be noted that only Guiseppe Farina, Juan Manuel Fangio and Jack Brabham have been champions with more than forty years, pilots to whom Fernando Alonso wants to add his name. The first champion in history, Farina, achieved it at 43 years and 10 months. The longevity record is held by Fangio, who achieved the first of his five Formula 1 World Cups with 40 years and the last with 46 years, 1 month and 11 days. Brabham, in 1966, was the last driver to be proclaimed champion at the age of 40. Fernando Alonso currently has 39. Lewis Hamilton’s records Lewis Hamilton, at 36, has equaled the seven championships won by a Michael Schumacher whom he intends to overcome in 2021. The Mercedes driver, with 98, has surpassed the German’s 91 victories in Formula 1; while Fernando Alonso is sixth in this classification with 32 wins, as far as pole positions are concerned. Hamilton recently added the 100th pole of his career setting a new record in Formula 1. Schumacher, second in this classification, achieved 68. Fernando Alonso, for his part, does not appear in the Top-10.Even so, he maintains the best percentage of victories achieved starting from the first position.
