Formula 1: Who holds the most fastest laps? – autosport.com

In Formula 1, alongside taking title victories, pole positions and race wins, there is another way drivers can get themselves a place in the record book.

A fastest lap at a circuit has long been a mark of distinction, emphasising a driver’s ability to push to the limit and to do so for an entire lap without losing control.

In 2019 F1 changed the scoring system so that the driver and team to set the fastest lap in a race receive an extra point – on the condition that they finish within the top ten.

More noteworthy than simply the fastest lap during an event is the lap record, the fastest lap ever set at a track which, depending on changes in technical regulations, can remain unbroken for years.

Alongside the lap record, which must be set during a race, there is also the fastest lap recorded at any point during a grand prix weekend. This time is often set in the final part of qualifying when drivers are pushing to set a pole-winning time.
