There is hardly any statistical variable in Formula 1 that is debated as much as the points. Because the allocation of the meters has changed again and again over the years, individual generations can no longer be compared on the basis of the meters collected. Nevertheless, it is worth taking a look at the eternal table.
Hamilton draws level with Vettel
The two drivers who cheered at the top of the podium in Montreal are also in the points Hit list at the top. Both Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel were able to top up their accounts to 1,974 points. Fernando Alonso, who was the first to trump the old record of Michael Schumacher (1,566), is already well ahead of 3rd place with 1,796 points.
Incidentally, Hamilton has never been at the top of the all-time points table by himself . Azerbaijan thus offers the first opportunity for the world champion to leave Vettel behind and to climb the throne alone.
Only Vettel and Hamilton score twice on average
They are also in terms of career average very close to both pilots. Vettel was able to collect 12.04 points per race, with Hamilton it is 11.34. Both are in a league of their own. Alonso (6.93) and Rosberg (6.90) are the only drivers in Formula 1 history who can show more than 50 percent of Vettel's yield per race.
