The US Grand Prix may not have been the most exciting race in the world but with Sebastian Vettel winning yet again, there’s been loads of great stats. As usual though we’ve ignored them and got Bad F1 Stats to give us some terrible stats from Austin.
Below are the ten
best worst bad stats from the United States Grand Prix.
– Heikki Kovalainen competed in his first race for Lotus since the 2011 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and the 2007 Brazilian Grand Prix.
– Prior to the weekend, Kevin Magnussen was announced as a McLaren driver for 2014. If you recognise the name, it’s because he is the son of former Icelandic strongman Magnus Magnusson and the grandson of former Mastermind presenter Magnus Magnusson.
– Romain Grosjean out-qualified Kimi Raikkonen for the fourth time in six races.
– Sebastian Vettel became the first driver to do donuts at three consecutive races since Ralf Schumacher in 2007, although Ralf’s were unintentional.
– Pastor Maldonado co-wrote the Beastie Boys’ 1994 hit ‘Sabotage’.
– Three of the first four laps of the race were spent behind the safety car. One lap to clear away the debris and two laps to allow Max Chilton to unlap himself.
– This was the first United States Grand Prix in six years that’s had a high-five success rate of 100%.
– Valtteri Bottas took his worst grid position in North America.
– Esteban Gutierrez failed to finish on the podium in a United States Grand Prix for the first time in his career.
– Marussia and Caterham have impressively scored the exact same number of points in every Grand Prix since Bahrain 2010.
