Post-race Statistics of the Japanese GP

Cracking race at the Japanese GP as always, first time for a while that you didn’t know who was going to win for most of the race.

Mark Webber ended Vettel’s run of consecutive poles and fastest laps, Grosjean ended Vettel’s run of consecutive laps led, but in the end the finger waving German still won the race. This takes Vettel to five consecutive wins in one season, the first time he has reached five in a row and one of only six drivers that has done so. Those drivers are; Alberto Ascari, Jack Brabham, Jim Clark, Nigel Mansell and Michael Schumacher.

Those other five drivers with five consecutive wins in a season have 174 wins and 15 championships between them. Webber finished second in the race, his 39th podium finish from his 12th pole, Grosjean was third and for the first time, didn’t have Raikkonen ahead of him in second. Esteban Gutierrez finished in the points for the first time in his career with a seventh place finish, the first points finish for any of the rookie drivers this year.

Romain Grosjean’s podium finish at the Japanese GP brings the total podiums of all French drivers up to 300. The fourth place for Fernando Alonso takes him up to a career total of 1571, a new record in F1 and just five points more than Michael Schumacher scored in his career. However if all finishes were scored with the current F1 points system Alonso would only be third all time, 1400 behind Schumacher and only 50 behind Alain Prost.

Only a couple of changes, both Sauber drivers have moved up a position, di Resta and Maldonado have both moved down a position. The Constructors’ Championship has stayed exactly the same.

The championship is still alive (just), 100 points are available and Vettel leads by 90, I will mention all of the ways for Alonso to stay in the hunt in the Indian pre-race stats.
