Did anyone else get annoyed by Ron Dennis' antics on the podium? Pointing and laughing at Michael in my opinion was just out.

European GP 2007 facts & statistics

A crazy race threw up some interesting statistics - we had a rookie driver leading the race, a rare red flag and - give thanks - the first proper pass for the lead on the track!

Here are some of the interesting facts and statistics from the European Grand Prix.

Kimi Raikkonen scored his second pole position of the year - the first since the season opener at Australia. Ironically, having won the last two races from somewhere other than pole, he failed to win this race from pole.

Fernando Alonso made the first pass on the track for the lead this year that wasn’t on a start or restart.

Alonso also became only the second driver to win the European Grand Prix more than once. In 17 races Michael Schumacher won six times, Alonso now twice, and Nelson Piquet, Alain Prost, Nigel Mansell, Ayrton Senna, Jacques Villeneuve, Mika Häkkinen, Johnny Herbert, Rubens Barrichello and Ralf Schumacher once each.

And Alonso is now the only driver to have scored points in every race this year. In fact, he hasn’t finished outside the top eight since his engine blew in last year’s Italian Grand Prix.

On his début Markus Winkelhock led six laps of the race - one more than Alonso, who won. Winkelhock is the second driver this year to lead his first ever Grand Prix, the other being, of course, Lewis Hamilton.

Spyker also led a Grand Prix for the first time. In its previous incarnation, Jordan, the team won four times.

He is also sixth German to start a Grand Prix this year and is the 51st German participant. There were also four drivers from the German Democratic Republic that entered Grands Prix, but none of them during the period of re-unification. Germany is fifth on the list of countries with the most Grand Prix participations, behind France (68).

The last driver to make his Grand Prix début at his home race was Zsolt Baumgartner in the 2003 Hungarian Grand Prix.

The race had five different leaders (the pair above plus Kimi Raikkonen, David Coulthard and Felipe Massa), the most since six different drivers led the 2005 Japanese Grand Prix.

Lots of Lewis Hamilton’s records came to an end: his string of nine podiums and points finishes. McLaren’s run of scoring points with both drivers in every race also ended.

It was the first time a race had been stopped since the 2001 Belgian Grand Prix, halted due to an accident involving Luciano Burti and Eddie Irvine.

The only round in Germany this year is called the European Grand Prix, making it the first time the calendar has been without a German Grand Prix since 1960.

McLaren-Mercedes won on the 80th anniversary of the first race at the Nürburgring, won by Rudolf Caracciola in a Mercedes-Benz.

Mark Webber scored his second podium finish, the first coming at Monaco in 2005.

Williams-Toyota now have twice as many points as Toyota, 18 to 9.

McLaren have out-scored Ferrari in seven races out of ten so far this year - conversely, Ferrari have only taken points off McLaren twice.

i reckon that this is one of those races that will be remembered for a LONG time! like spa 1998 nd malaysia 2001. Especially those first four laps! i reckon Markus Winkelhock will also be remembered whether he succeeds in f1 or not just because of the situations that led towards his lead in the race. Brilliant race, u know its good when the lead is decided 5 laps from the end (though a good dose of rain helps too) :D

It was an exciting race, but disappointing for me. I would have preferred a Massa win, and some points for Hamilton.
