Crazy Stats GP China 2015: 3 drivers, 9 trophies

E do you remember who was on the podium in Australia ? And who took the first 3 places in Malaysia? And for when were the trophies in China? Correct! There were always the same 3 pilots - Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel - but not always in the same order. But even so, that's remarkable enough. In Formula 1 history, there has never been a situation where only 3 drivers won the first 9 trophies.

Such a constellation is also extremely unusual at a later point in the season. This was the case only twice before. Incidentally, Rubens Barrichello and David Coulthard were both involved in the first two podium hat tricks. Incidentally, the same 3 pilots have never been allowed to splash with champagne 4 times in a row. Hopes for a little more variety in Bahrain are high.

Hamilton in the footsteps of Senna

Lewis Hamilton dominated the China weekend at will. He set the fastest time in all free practice sessions. Then he also secured the hat trick from pole position, fastest race lap and victory in the race. The world champion only succeeded in doing this for the seventh time in his career - just like Ayrton Senna by the way.

In our Crazy Stats in the picture gallery, we tell you which all-time record Lewis Hamilton has already set in Bahrain and how often it happened in Formula 1 history that a race was ended behind the safety car and the déjà vus Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso experienced.
