2016 Bahrain GP Post-Race Stats

Another race down and another win for Nico Rosberg, who has now won the last five races.

Only three drivers have won more than five consecutive races; Schumacher and Ascari have both won seven consecutively and Vettel nine. Every single driver that has won five consecutive races is a champion, bar Rosberg, for now…

Kimi Raikkonen finished the race second and Lewis Hamilton third, Vettel could have been on the podium but his engine failed spectacularly on the way to the grid. Fastest lap of the race also went to Rosberg and the most places gained was Magnussen, starting from the pit lane and finishing 11th. Kvyat wasn’t too far off Magnussen, he gained eight places, starting 15th and finishing seventh.

Romain Grosjean again impressed with his new Haas, he finished sixth in Australia and fifth in Bahrain, if he keeps improving at this rate he will be on the podium in Russia and win in Monaco. Stoffel Vandoorne stepped in for Alonso in Bahrain and scored McLaren’s first points of the season by finishing tenth.

Stat of the Day

Trying something a little new with a slight twist on the usual driver of the day thing pretty much everyone gives out.

Pascal Wehrlein’s fastest lap in Bahrain was 1:35.448, only one second off of the fastest lap of the race. Just five drivers set a faster lap than him in the race, points for Manor seem a real possibility this season.


Too many changes to list, only the two Mercedes drivers remain in the same championship position.


Only a few changes, Red Bull move up to third, Toro Rosso to sixth, and after scoring their first points McLaren move to eighth.
