With Sebastian Vettel almost confirmed as the Driver’s Champion for the 4th consecutive year, many fans have claimed that he’s made the sport very boring. Of course, the same was said when Schumacher was reeling away win after win, so it is nothing new in F1. But that got us wondering, what are the top 5 win streaks in F1? We’ve compiled a list. It is in no way comprehensive; in fact, it is a very subjective list. Of course, suggestions are always welcome in the comments section.
Perhaps one of the most dominant performances was Sir Jackie Stewart’s 1969 season. The season had 11 races, and the start he had to the season was so brilliant that his rivals did not stand a chance. He won 5 of the first 6 races, and he would have won the 6th race too, if it wasn’t for a retirement.
What makes this special? Out of the 5 wins that he had, he also recorded the fastest lap in 4 of them. Even in the Monaco GP, where he had to retire, he registered a fastest lap as well! There is another reason why this streak is special. In the Spanish Grand Prix, he won the race with a lead of 2 laps; in the French GP, he won the race with a lead of over a minute; at the British GP, he won by a lap!
