Lewis Hamilton reached 300 tests in Formula 1, a mark that five drivers reached but then did not win again. Gentleness.
Multiple champion Lewis Hamilton made history yesterday at the PaulRicard circuit, where yesterday he reached 300 tests in his Formula 1 campaign, a figure that Only a handful of pilots succeeded, but history highlights that he entered a club that has a significant curse.
In 15 years of experience, he managed to enter the club of three hundred tests, but in the immediate future he will have the challenge of breaking a curse that five other pilots did not achieve, such as winning. Once you get over 300, history says you don’t finish first again.
Kimi Raikkonen (353), Fernando Alonso (347), Rubens Barrichello (326), Jenson Button (309) and Michael Schumacher (308) are the other drivers who, once the 300 tests, they did not win again. The seven-time champion has not won since the penultimate date of the last World Cup and is on the longest streak in his history without being first, so he has a great challenge ahead.
Raikkonen won for the last time in his 288 Grand Prix, the United States 2018; Alonso did it in his 201, in Spain in 2013; Button obtained it at his 228th appointment, in Brazil in 2012; Schumacher, in his 246th start, in China in 2006; and Barrichello achieved it in his GP 280, the one in Italy in 2009.
Lewis Hamilton, after completing 300 tests in Formula 1 at Paul Ricard, will have the great challenge of returning to victory, which he has not achieved since last year. Gentleness.
Will the Saudi Grand Prix in 2021 be Hamilton’s last? Returning to victory for the star driver of the Mercedes team seems, at least for the moment, a mission complicated by the dominance shown by Red Bull and Ferrari.
