Lewis Hamilton has wrapped up title number six in 2019, but the Mercedes star's season hit a rare low as he brought up an unwanted statistic at the Brazilian GP.
Hamilton qualified third-fastest at Interlagos, representing his ninth successive race without a pole position.
It is now Hamilton's longest wait for Saturday success since joining Mercedes in 2013!
Even in his first season at the Silver Arrows, which only yielded a single grand prix win, the Briton was on pole five times, including four in a row between Silverstone and Spa.
Hockenheim was Hamilton's last pole in 2019, although in his eight-race run of qualifying defeats, he has been on the top step of the podium three times come Sunday, so he's unlikely to be too perturbed by the new entry in the record books!
