  1. Most GP 3rd Places (Career)

    Rubens Barrichello doesn’t have this record for himself, at the moment both Raikkonen and Alonso equals that record..if I’m not wrong..

      1. It doesn’t actually change anything, because Kimi nor Alonso haven’t scored 3rd places this year so far..

        I do not say it’s wrong with Barrichellos name at the record, but he doesn’t have it alone

        1. I can see that Kimi captured his 28th 3rd place in Singapore 2013 and Alonso did it in the Chinese Grand Prix 2014 🙂

  2. What I wrote to you is the correct answer, I don’t care if it’s right on this webside, I’m just telling you that Barrichello doesn’t stand for that record alone.

  3. Actually, you can even take a look under ‘Stats’ –> ‘Top 15 All-Time Drivers’ –> ‘Percentage of Podium (1-2-3) Finishes’, Both Alonso and Kimi will also apear there with 28 3rd places each there + at the other websides I’ve found 🙂

  4. Great list! and it was sooo innoying that mercedes ended their dominace today with 23 consecutive poles in a row! The record is 24 by Williams back in 91 🙁 So close, also for Lewis Hamilton with 8 in a row. Record is Senna with 8 poles in a row.

  5. Hi again Glenn, can you find something about ‘Podiumfinishes on most different tracks’?

    Cheers Kristian
