Most 1-2 in a single season
The record for the most number of 1-2 finishes in a single season interestingly belongs to none other than Mercedes.
It was back in 2015 where Mercedes would win twelve 1-2 finishes in a single season.
Lewis Hamilton, who emerged on top in 2015, would make it his second world title having first won a world championship back in 2008, a little over a year where he made his debut.
Moreover, back in 2015, Hamilton was in such great form that he would finish inside the top three in 9 back-to-back races of that season, winning 5 of them.
Now given the form they are in at this point in time, the Silver Arrows having already clinched 4 straight 1-2 finishes so far, they need 8 more such results from 17 impending races to equal the record.
And should they go one better and manage nine (9) 1-2 finishes from 17 opportunities, they would truly be right on top. This will mean that they would have secured 13 overall 1-2 finishes in a single F1 season, a truly unbelievable record.Published 07 May 2019, 12:17 IST
