We bid farewell to Michael Schumacher and look forward to the 2007 Formula Season (We have already posted the season calendar , sidebar will be updated soon) , we apologise for the bad updating near the end of the season , we will be back with a new design , new features and possibly a new domain (in that case you all will have to update your links and bookmarks et all !!!!!!!

Plus you shall no longer be able to enjoy our partial coverage to michael schumacher : P

Here is a list of records by Schumi from Wikipedia

As of the end of the 2006 Formula One Season, Michael Schumacher holds the following F1 records:

Career Records Of Michael Schumacher :

* Most championship titles: 7
* Most consecutive championship titles: 5
* Most race wins: 91
* Most consecutive race wins: 7 (in 2004 - European GP, Canadian GP, United States GP, French GP, British GP, German GP, Hungarian GP)

This record is shared with Ascari, who won the last 6 races of 1952 and the first one of 1953. The following race was the Indianapolis 500, in which he did not participate. Afterwards he won other two races, but since the Indy 500 was officially part of the F1 World Championship, his winning streak was already over.

* Most race wins with one team: 72 with Ferrari
* Most race wins at the same GP: 8 at the French Grand Prix (Magny-Cours)
* Most different GPs (by country) won: 20
* Most time between first and last race wins: 14 years, 1 month and 2 days
* Most second place finishes: 43
* Most podium finishes: 154
* Most consecutive podium finishes: 19 (from the 2001 United States Grand Prix, until the 2002 Japanese Grand Prix)
* Most points finishes: 190
* Most laps leading: 4741 (with a total of 22,155 km in 131 Grands Prix) [27]
* Most pole positions: 68
* Most starts from first row: 108
* Most fastest laps: 76
* Most doubles (pole position and race win): 40
* Most hat-trick (pole position, race win and fastest lap): 22
* Most championship points: 1,369
* Most consecutive race finished without retirement: 24 (from the 2001 Hungarian Grand Prix, until the 2003 Malaysian Grand Prix)
* Most championship points in a season for a vice-world champion: 121 (out of a maximum of 180)
* Most Wins in a season for a vice-world champion: 7 (ties Alain Prost and Kimi Raikkonen)
* Only racing driver ever, in any racing class, to win 5 times at Indianapolis Motor Speedway
* Only racing driver ever, in any racing class, to win 5 times at Autodromo Nazionale Monza


* Most race wins in a season: 13 (out of 18 races)
* Most fastest laps in a season: 10 (out of 18 races; tied by Räikkönen in 2005)
* Most championship points in a season: 148 (out of a maximum of 180)


* Most podium finishes in a season: 17 (out of 17 races)

The one major record Schumacher missed out on was the record for most Grands Prix competed in. His final race was his 250th so he finished 6 short of Riccardo Patrese's record of 256. Other records he did not break were the one for most pole positions in a season, as held by Nigel Mansell (14), and for most consecutive pole positions, held by Ayrton Senna (8).

However, the record for the highest winning strike rate, is held by Juan Manuel Fangio, with 24 wins from 51 starts (47.1%) to Schumacher's 36.4%.

He was the youngest double World Champion when he won the championship in 1995 with 26 years, 9 months and 19 days of age, but this record was beaten by Fernando Alonso in 2006, when he won his 2nd championship aged only 25 years, 3 months and 24 days.
