Red Bull dominance threatens astonishing 70-year F1 streak

Could Red Bull break the incredible run by continuing its staggering run of form?

Red Bull's dominance of Formula 1 this season leaves a streak that has stood for 70 years at risk of being broken.

Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez have secured all eight race victories thus far this term, with the two-time World Champion taking six of those to canter into a 69-point lead at the top of the Drivers' standings.

The Milton Keynes-based team has been tipped to secure victory in every race this season to become the first outfit to achieve the feat, but despite its Midlands base in the United Kingdom, the Austrian national anthem is played during the podium ceremony due to the energy drink's roots.

If Red Bull was to stop Mercedes and Aston Martin from securing a win this year, it would be the first time since 1952 the British anthem would not be played during the podium ceremony.

A Briton has won a race in all but seven seasons since 1953, with UK-based teams filling the gaps in between to ensure the anthem was played.

George Russell kept the streak going at the 11th hour last season with victory for Mercedes at the penultimate race of the campaign in Brazil – the 21st British driver to secure an F1 win.

Will the streak be ended? Take a look at the full list of British winners during the 70-year run below!
