Stats – Australian GP 2013

In 2012, Felipe Massa led one lap: at the Monaco Grand Prix. Already in 2013 he has led three laps.

Ferrari were by far the best team on pit stops, setting the quickest at 21.509s (Massa) and a difference of just 0.3s between fastest and slowest.

Jenson Button has matched Giancarlo Fisichella for entries and starts in F1: 231 entries, 229 starts. With his 9th place finish, he has now scored over 1000 points in F1, joining Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel in this achievement.

Kimi Raikkonen has now won 20 F1 races, and taken 38 fastest laps, 6 days under 10 years since he won his first race in Malaysia 2003. He also took fastest lap at the venue where he got his first fastest lap, in 2002. He matches fellow Finn Mika Hakkinen’s 20 wins, taking the total of Finnish wins in F1 to 46. He has 18 consecutive points finishes, one less than Vettel’s streak and 6 less than the current record of 24. Kimi managed to get the win starting from seventh, in car number seven; it’s also the first win for a car with the number 7 since Jarno Trulli in 2004 at Monaco, who was also driving for the Enstone team.

Lotus (aka the Enstone team) have won their 49th race, while it was the 75th for a car called ‘Lotus’ in F1.

Sebastian Vettel has now started from the front row 50 times in his career, having taken his 32nd pole position.

Sadly for Nico Hulkenberg, he had the first DNS of his career due to a mechanical issue with the Sauber. He had qualified 11th.

Continuing his career at Midland/Spyker/Force India, Adrian Sutil has secured over 100 points for the team. His seventh place was enough for him to become the F1 driver with the most points without a win – only behind Nick Heidfeld and Kamui Kobayashi.
