Lewis Hamilton is arguably the greatest Formula 1 driver of all time. The Brit holds records for the most races won, most pole positions won and most laps led in Formula 1. He is also tied with Michael Schumacher on seven world championships.

Hamilton has dominated the turbo-hybrid era since its inception in 2014, winning all championships bar one. The Brit was beaten by his teammate Nico Rosberg in 2016 after suffering multiple reliability issues throughout the season.

Dominant performances over recent years have made Hamilton the most successful driver in the sport. It has also given Hamilton the accolade of being the driver with the most wins at a single Grand Prix, for multiple events.

After winning the 2021 Bahrain Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton has now won the race at Sakhir a record five times. He was previously tied with Sebastian Vettel for the most wins in Sakhir with four. Apart from the Bahrain Grand Prix, there are 8 other Grand Prix events where Lewis Hamilton has won the most amount of times.

Where has Lewis Hamilton not won a race?

When it comes to Lewis Hamilton, the more pertinent question to ask is, where has he not won a race?

There have been four tracks at which the seven-time world champion hasn't tasted champagne. Despite winning the French Grand Prix twice, Hamilton hasn't won a race at the old Magny-Cours circuit. The Brit has also not won at the Valencia Street Circuit, which hosted races from 2008 to 2012, despite winning the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona five times.

The two Grand Prix events that Lewis Hamilton has never won in his stellar career are the Korean Grand Prix and the Indian Grand Prix. Sebastian Vettel has won all three races in India. The German has also won three of the four races to take place in South Korea, with Fernando Alonso winning one.
