Last week we asked you to tweet us your favourite F1 facts and stats, with our five favourites winning a copy of World Formula 1 Records.
We had some brilliant entries, and after much debating we’ve picked out our winners. In no particular order, the winners and their facts are…
@wtf1official Teo Fabi has scored three pole positions during his F1 career but surprisingly, also has never led a single lap during his F1 career #WTF1Fact

That’s right! In 64 grand prix starts, Fabi took three poles, two podiums, and two fastest laps, yet he never managed to lead a lap.
Over the course of his F1 career, Jean Behra had 40 different teammates including world champions Juan Manuel Fangio and Phil Hill #wtf1fact

Jean Behra raced from 1952-1959 – of course, this is the sort of stat that could only happen in the 1950s!
@wtf1official Fun F1 fact: throughout his career @schumacher always had 7 stars on top of his helmet.
7 stars✨ – 7 titles🏆
Coincidence or did he know from the beginning ? 😵 #WTF1Fact pic.twitter.com/xZLoN6Z2GD

When Alan Jones surprisingly won the 1977 Austrian Grand Prix, they had no national anthem for him. Instead, a drunk guy played 'Happy Birthday' on his trumpet. #WTF1Fact pic.twitter.com/UpSqIeSOzL

Alan Jones started the race from 14th and took Shadow’s only F1 victory – no wonder they didn’t have the Australian anthem to hand!
Johnny Dumfries is the only F1 driver whose surname insults chips. #WTF1Fact #chipsaregreat

Well, you can’t argue with that!
If you’re one of the winners, then congratulations! Keep an eye out, because we’ll be contacting you shortly.
