Victory is a term used to describe the act of the winning a race, giving the driver the maximum number of points in a race.
Out of the 757 drivers who have started a championship race, only 107 drivers have achieved race wins.
Michael Schumacher holds the record of most victories with 91, only seventy-eight less than the combined total of the second, third and fourth placed drivers on the list, Lewis Hamilton (67), Alain Prost (51) and Sebastian Vettel (51). Schumacher also holds the record for the greatest gap between his first and last victories, with over 14 years between the 1992 Belgian Grand Prix and 2006 Chinese Grand Prix. Alberto Ascari and Vettel share the record for wins from consecutive starts with nine, although only Vettel has done this in consecutive races (Ascari missed the Indianapolis 500 in 1953). The youngest winner is Max Verstappen, who won the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix at the age of 18 years and 228 days old. The oldest winner is Luigi Fagioli, who was 53 years and 22 days old when he won the 1951 French Grand Prix with Juan Manuel Fangio. The most starts without a victory is 208, achieved by Andrea de Cesaris.
When combined with pole position, a driver achieves a double. A hat-trick is achieved when the driver also gets the fastest lap. A Grand Chelem is when the driver takes wins from pole, taking the fastest lap and leading every lap of the race.
