Formula One is known to be one of the grandest sporting events in the world. Records have been set, broken and set again since the very beginning, and it has all become the part and parcel of F1's racing history.
Like the very famous saying goes, "Records are made to be broken."
In most cases, the drivers strive to break records and inscribe their names against the existing ones, but then there are some amazing records that simply cannot be beaten - at least not in the foreseeable future. While there have been plenty of records that F1 drivers try to beat regularly, there are a few that they know better than to even try.
Here is a look at some of the most amazing F1 records that are nearly impossible to break:
#5 Records On Fire: Canadian Grand Prix 2011
It is said that in terms of records and historical significance, the Canadian Grand Prix of 2011 is the greatest and strangest race ever. It holds three magnificent records:
1. It is the longest race in the history of Formula One, taking 4 hours and 4 minutes to finish.
2. This race involved the highest number of safety cars ever seen in a race - 6.
3. This race witnessed the lowest average speed ever in the history of F1 - 46 km/h. We can't imagine this speed in a Formula One race today.
There is one more reason why this is considered one of the greatest races ever. Jenson Button marched his way to victory from being last on the grid at the start, which was probably one of the greatest comebacks ever.
