2019 Bahrain GP Post-Race Stats

It’s been a while since I’ve done any post-race stats, so I’m bringing them back, and attempting to get at least one post up on the website every week during the F1 season.

First pole for Charles Leclerc, making him the second youngest F1 polesitter at 21 years and 165 days old. The youngest polesitter is his teammate Sebastian Vettel at 21 years and 72 days old

Charles Leclerc was the 99th driver to be on pole in F1, at the 999th race

It was also the first fastest lap and the first podium finish for Leclerc

Ferrari scored their 220th pole and 249th fastest lap thanks to Leclerc

It was the 74th race win for Hamilton and his 136th podium

First F1 points for Lando Norris and Alexander Albon

Albon is the first Thai driver to score a point since Prince Bira at the 1954 French GP, the only other Thai driver in F1

Even though only two races have been run in 2019, no driver has finished in the same position for both races

Valtteri Bottas’ second-place finish gave him over 1,000 points total scored, the tenth driver to hit the 1,000 point mark

Pierre Gasly and Antonio Giovinazzi both gained the most positions in the race, moving five places from their grid position

Hamilton’s 88th podium for Mercedes

The first penalty point of the year was given to Grosjean for blocking in qualifying, Grosjean now has the most points currently on his licence and the most points in total

There was only a single classified retirement in the race, Grosjean after 16 laps

Sainz, Ricciardo and Hulkenberg all stopped on the same lap, but completed over 90% of the race distance so were still classified as finished

Leclerc set the fastest lap in all but one session in Bahrain, topping FP1, FP3, Q1, Q2, Q3 and the fastest race lap, Vettel set the fastest lap in FP2
