We looked at the youngest podium finishers and youngest drivers to start a race. Now for this F1 quiz we are looking for the 10 youngest drivers to set the fastest lap.
Records are made to be broken. And these days, a lot of “youngest so and so…” records get broken quite often.
Whether you want to attribute this to immense talent or the advancement of cars is up to you.
But the thing is, every team is looking for the next big thing, and that means bringing in young drivers whenever they feel they’re ready for it.
The fastest laps are often too concentrated in an F1 race. They’re being emphasized a bit now that they’re worth a point if they finish in the top 10. Other than that, though, they just feel like another stat.
But that’s not entirely true. It might not be a race win, but getting the fastest lap comes with some bragging rights to others that they were able to go faster. A small victory, but a victory nonetheless.
Sometimes for a team that is not competing for race wins, the fastest lap means a lot to them and is not a small victory but a good sign that they have the pace.
And the same goes for young drivers. If they can set a fastest lap in the race, they’ll feel like they can actually hang on to the big boys.
For this F1 quiz, we want you to name the 10 youngest drivers to achieve a fast lap in a Formula 1 Grand Prix.
