F1 2021 Four champions grab 14 crowns
SIt is always difficult to compare few and ages in all sports. Also in Formula 1 however much it has been a recurring thing lately after Lewis Hamilton to equal Michael Schumacher with seven wound. If something else they will have in common is that thanks to both, two World Cups in which they were can already be considered the most awarded in all history. Logically, it remains to be confirmed that the British his new contract with Mercedes, but it is something that is taken for granted (so much so that it even appears in the registered lists).
However, there is another pilot who will be key to 2021 sea the World Cup with the most crowns: Fernando Alonso. With his return to the Great Circus, the highest discipline in world motorsports, he added two more titles. Therefore, in this contest that is about to begin there will be nothing less than 14: the seven with whom to introduce Hamilton, the four of Sebastian Vettel, that of Kimi Raikkonen and the aforementioned two of the Asturian.
In the previous seasons it was a constant that on the grid they formed between 10 and 11 wound, as Vettel achieved the last in 2014 and Hamilton did not stop adding one each course. Nico Rosberg never contributed it, because he did not defend what he obtained in 2016. Before Alonso left, Jenson Button did, who could also have boasted of being a champion.
There is only one year in the more than 70 years of Formula 1 history in which there were as many crowns as there will be in 2021. It was in 2012, the last one Michael Schumacher was in. Then, ‘El Kiser’ also wore his seven titles; Alonso, two; Vettel, two; Hamilton, 1; Button, 1 and Kimi Raikkonen, another. The Finn, winner in 2007 with Ferrari, was back after taking a two-year sabbatical. That was the year with more champions at the same time (6), while in the one that is about to start they contribute four.
Therefore, another campaign likely to boast with so many titles could be 2011, but then the aforementioned Raikkonen was missing and Vettel had one less, so there were ‘only’ 12. As in 2010, for the same reasons, with 11 crowns.
Previously, the one who had retired was Schumacher, but in his last season in red, 2006There were only 9 wound on track: Michael’s seven, one from Alonso (achieved the previous year) and one from Jacques Villeneuve.
In all previous campaigns 10 titles were never exceeded since ‘Schumi’ was growing up and he was never surrounded by multi-champions since Mika Hakkinen left. In the twentieth century, of course, no World Cup ever approached so many crowns, since everything was more varied and Juan Manuel Fangio, Alain Prost or Sir Jackie Stewart did not coincide in few.
