Two of the six races so far this season have been won from pole – Bottas in Azerbaijan and Hamilton in Monaco.
Hamilton has 140 career podiums and needs to finish in the top three in every race this year to equal Schumacher’s record of 155. Vettel has 114.
Mercedes have won the first six races of the season, and the last eight in total.
The record for most successive wins by a team is 14, by Ferrari in 1952-53. McLaren won 11 in a row in 1988.
