Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso have completed every Grand Prix lap in the 2024 season

The 2024 Formula 1 Champion, Max Verstappen, and the El Plan specialist, Fernando Alonso, have competed in all the 1019 Grand Prix laps in the 2024 season. They are the only drivers on the grid who have no DNFs and have completed every lap of the Grand Prix.

So far, 17 Formula 1 Grand Prix have taken place, and the season has already had its champions. Both the driver’s championship and the constructor’s championship were won by Max Verstappen and the Red Bull team, respectively. Well, the only competition this season is for the No. 2 and No. 3 spots.

With the consistency that Fernando Alonso has, he is clearly a top contender to rank in the top 3 spots at the end of the season. Whereas Max Verstappen is already in the top spot and will enjoy their competition.

This is the first time that both Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso have completed every Grand Prix lap, or else they have always ended up retiring or DNFs at least once in every season. They are also the only drivers on the grid, along with Sergio Perez, who have more than seven podium finishes.

Will Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso complete every Grand Prix lap by the end of the season in Abu Dhabi? For that, we will have to wait for a few more weeks and witness some more dominance by Red Bull with some competition among other teams.

In case you missed: Fernando Alonso hasn’t missed a single Q3 appearance in the 2024 F1 season
