Since 2009 only three Formula 1 titles have not been won by either Lewis Hamilton or Red Bull.

Jenson Button led Brawn to the 2009 double in the fairytale season, just about managing to cling on and beat the charging Sebastian Vettel, while in 2016 it was Nico Rosberg who walked away with the crown.

Hamilton has claimed six of the Drivers' titles in 2014-15, and 2017-2020 and the two Constructors' in 2016 and 2021 with Red Bull taking the remaining Drivers' and Constructors' titles - helped by the efforts of Vettel and Max Verstappen.

This weekend in Saudi Arabia, should a Red Bull driver take the chequered flag first, they will match a Hamilton record that started when they won their first race back at the very wet 2009 Chinese Grand Prix.

Red Bull's Hamilton record

Since the start of the 2009 season, Hamilton has taken 94 wins in F1, with the other nine coming in his first two seasons with McLaren.

In that same time, Red Bull has picked up 93 wins through four drivers. Mercedes has 116 wins, also split across four drivers.

Ferrari have just 30 wins since the start of 2009 - currently six less than Verstappen has on his own since his first in 2016!
