The impressive record Lewis Hamilton has set in F1 2022 – Crash

While it has been a difficult season – relatively speaking – for Lewis Hamilton in F1 2022, there’s one underlying record still to his name…
After the opening 11 rounds of the season, Lewis Hamilton is still the only driver to have finished every race.
Remarkably, Hamilton’s last retirement due to a technical issue was at the 2018 Austrian Grand Prix.
Since then, Hamilton has failed to finish just once – at the 2021 Italian Grand Prix following a collision with title rival Max Verstappen.
If Mercedes are able to get into the title fight, their reliability combined with Hamilton’s consistency could make for an interesting second half of the season.
Verstappen sits top of the drivers’ championship but he’s failed to make the chequered flag on two occasions.

Like Verstappen, Perez failed to finish in Bahrain but was classified in 18th after stopping on track on the final lap.
