Mounting the top step on the F1 podium is a feat so challenging, so exceptional, that some drivers never get there, despite toiling in the field for years. They’re the unheralded worker bees of Grand Prix racing.
|Six Most Grands Prix Without A Victory|
|1||Andrea de Cesaris||1980-94||208|
|3||Martin Brundle||1984-89, 91-96||158|
|6||Eddie Cheever||1978, 1981-89||132|
There’s a reason some F1 drivers never get the laurels and honor of winning a Grand Prix. Perhaps it is skill (but they’re all quick), perhaps it is technology (but all cars are built from scratch) or perhaps it’s money (but they all bring lots of sponsors’ dollars). These are the top six exercises in futility for a Formula One racing career.
