Formula 1: The Sport's Unwanted Records

In the world of Formula One, holding a record is normally considered a mark of excellence.

Michael Schumacher, without question one of the greatest drivers of all time, holds the records for most wins (91), most poles (68), most fastest laps (77) and most championships (seven).

Alberto Ascari's record of nine consecutive race wins is unlikely to ever be bettered. And Sebastian Vettel, quite a fan of statistics, is the proud holder of the record for the most pole positions in a single season (15).

But on the other end of the scale lie the records no one really wants to hold.

Claudio Langes for example, who failed to pre-qualify for every single one of the 14 races he entered, likely isn't too proud of being the least successful driver in F1 history.

Let's take a look at some of the other unwanted records the sport has to offer.
