Which driver won the most F1 drivers' titles?

Which driver won the most F1 drivers' titles?

Lewis Hamilton & Michael Schumacher

Driving Formula 1 is in the end, all about to become world champion. In total there are only 34 F1 champions that won a F1 drivers championship title. Of those 34 drivers 47% won two or more championships, in fact a crazy amount of 16 drivers has won more than one title. On top of those 16 drivers are Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton who both won an amazing seven titles. In 2021 Hamilton was very close at scoring the record breaking eight Formula 1 drivers' title. Unfortunately for Hamilton, the champ lost it in the very last lap of the very last GP that 2021 season. Michael Schumacher is by the way, still the only F1 driver who scored 5 consecutive F1 drivers' titles.

The second most F1 drivers' titles are still won by the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio. He won five F1 titles. This great driver from Argentina drove F1 in the 50's. In that time F1 was very dangerous and many drivers got killed in action those days. Fangio also won 4 titles with 4 different constructors, which still is a record.

Third on this shortlist of champions are Sebastian Vettel and Alain Prost. They both won 4 titles.

Which team won the most F1 constructors' titles?

Which team won the most F1 constructors' titles?

The constructors title isn't as popular as the driver title. Nevertheless it's the most important championship. This is because the price money that the F1 teams receive, is depending on it. In total there are only fifteen F1 constructors that ever won the F1 Championship. You have to keep in mind that the F1 constructors championship did not exists until 1958.

Just as there are drivers that won more than one championship, there are nine constructors that won more than one constructors title. Out of these nine F1 champions, Ferrari won the most titles and has a total of 16 F1 constructors' titles. Second is Williams with nine and third are McLaren and Mercedes who both have 8 titles.

With eight consecutive won constructors titles the Mercedes F1 team is on top of the list. They won it from 2014 till 2021 and now the Mercedes team holds that F1 record for winning the most consecutive constructors' titles. Ferrari is second with seven (1999-2004) and McLaren once won four titles in a row (1988-1991).
