Here are all the F1 records that could be broken this season
Most Drivers’ Title Won: Michael Schumacher, 7
The most important record that could fall is that of the highest number of drivers’ titles won. Lewis Hamilton is inevitably the main favorite to win the 2021 championship, which would be his seventh with Mercedes, the eighth in his career. This would allow him to definitively overtake Michael Schumacher, becoming the greatest driver in the history of this sport at a statistical level.
More laps in the lead: Michael Schumacher, 5,111
Lewis Hamilton has 13 laps left to overtake the seven-time world champion in the statistic of the highest number of laps spent leading a GP. An overtaking that could already come in the first race of 2021, in Bahrain.
Most victories without winning the title: Stirling Moss, 16
The greatest driver in F1 history to never win the title is Stirling Moss who boasts 16 career GPs, the highest number among those who have never champion graduates. This season the only ones who can beat this record are Max Verstappen and Valtteri Bottas. Max will start the season with ten career victories and seven wins without winning the championship would be enough to become the new record in this ranking. Bottas will start the season with nine career wins and eight wins without winning the championship would be enough to become the new record in this ranking.
Longest time interval between two victories: Riccardo Patrese, 6 years, 6 months and 28 days
In 1990 Riccardo Patrese won the San Marino Grand Prix 6 years, 6 months and 28 days after the Kyalami race, in South Africa, of the 1983. No one has ever managed to win two GPs after a longer interval, but this record could fall thanks to the return to F1 of Fernando Alonso who if he were to win a race this year would break the record, in fact his last victory dates back to 2013 Spanish GP almost 8 years ago.
