number 114

Thanks to his sublime victory this weekend in Miami, Lando Norris became the 114th driver to win a Grand Prix in Formula 1 and he is also the 21st Briton to win in the discipline. To find a new winner in F1, you have to go back a year and a half; George Russell won the 2022 Brazilian Grand Prix.

Verstappen, king of qualifying

Having achieved a new pole position in Florida, Max Verstappen matched drivers like Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher or even Alain Prost to the number of consecutive poles. The Dutchman is currently at 7 (6 this season) and if he again achieves the best time in qualifying at Imola (May 17-19), he will equal Ayrton Senna, who is the only holder of this record.

Slight satisfaction for Sargeant

This is a statistic that will perhaps give a smile to Logan sargeant. For the first time, not in the season but in his career, the American finished ahead of his teammate Alex Albon in qualifying. A 20th place for the veteran of the Red Bull sector due to a canceled time, his teammate could only do better…

168 days

168 days separate the last entry into the points ofAlpine from 10th place this weekend in Miami. November 19, 2023 Esteban Ocon put out a high-level performance on the Las Vegas circuit with a 4th place finish. The United States seems to be smiling at the French team…

Racing Bulls, the jackpot

This weekend, with the main race and the Sprint, Racing Bulls scored 12 points. This is its best total since the appearance of Sprint weekends in 2022. The last time that Red Bull's little sister scored more points over a weekend was in Abu Dhabi in 2021. Yuki Tunoda finished 4th and Pierre Gasly 5th, which makes a total of 22 points.

Surprising for the only Yankee on the grid, but the countdown to “stop or else” nevertheless seems irremediably underway!
