F1 2014 Alternative Championships: Round 5/19 (Spain) – Four one-twos in a row

MERCEDES continued their utter dominance of F1 2014.

Here’s a list of records they’re on course to destroy this season:

  • Most wins in a season: 15 – McLaren (1988) and Ferrari (2002 & ’04).
  • Highest percentage of wins in a season: 93.8 – McLaren (1988).
  • Most consecutive wins: 11 – McLaren (1988).
  • Most poles in a season: 18 – Red Bull (2011).
  • Most points in a season: 650 – Red Bull (2011).

The likelihood of all of these records going this season is slim, but pay attention to the ‘most wins’ and ‘most consecutive wins’ records as the season progresses.

As of the Monaco Grand Prix, I will be returning to my old-style race reviews…it’s been too long.

    Howdy! This article could not be written any better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I’ll send this information to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a good read. Thanks for sharing! dfbcecegecgf
