Most F1 Wins in a Single Country

Michael Schumacher holds the record for most Formula 1 victories in a single country, having won twelve Grands Prix in Italy. We take a look at the other drivers to have enjoyed multiple successes in a single country.


12 – Michael Schumacher, ?? Italy

Michael Schumacher holds the record for most wins in a single country. He won twelve Grands Prix in Italy during his career. His first victory on Italian soil came as a result of his win at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Schumacher won the race in tragic circumstances, with polesitter Ayrton Senna crashing out of the race and losing his life. This would be the only race in Italy which Schumacher did not win in a Ferrari. Schumacher took eleven more wins in Italy in red, delighting the Tifosi with five victories at Monza and six at Imola. Schumacher won all twelve of these races having started from inside the top three on the grid. The German announced his retirement from the sport following his twelfth and final victory in Italy at the 2006 Italian Grand Prix.

9 – Michael Schumacher, ?? Germany

Schumacher won nine times on home soil during his career. He won in Germany nine times – though the Grands Prix at which he won had varying titles. Schumacher’s first two home wins both came in 1995, when he was driving for Benetton. That year, he won the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim and the European Grand Prix at the Nurburgring. Schumacher then took another seven wins at home with Ferrari, winning three times at Hockenheim and four times at the Nurburgring.

8 – Michael Schumacher, ?? Japan

Schumacher dominates the top of this list, having also won eight times in Japan in his illustrious career. He is the only driver to have won the Pacific Grand Prix – a World Championship which was held twice, in 1994 and 1995, at the Aida circuit. He won both of those events with Benetton, with his 1995 Pacific Grand Prix win securing him a second World Championship. Schumacher went on to take five victories at Suzuka, the last four of which were all won from pole position. He secured his third and sixth titles at the venue in 2000 and 2003 respectively.

8 – Michael Schumacher, ?? France

Until 2020, Schumacher was the only driver to have won eight Grands Prix at a single circuit. He was victorious at Magny Cours eight times during his career. His first French Grand Prix victory, in 1994, is the only one which he didn’t take having started from the front row of the grid. He won the 1997 and 2006 French Grands Prix from pole position, and claimed his fifth title at the event in 2002 – impressively doing so in mid-July, such was his dominance that season.

8 – Lewis Hamilton, ?? Hungary

At the 2020 Hungarian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton became only the second driver to have won at a single circuit on eight occasions – as well as only the second driver to win in a country on eight occasions. Hamilton is somewhat of a Hungaroring specialist, having taken seven poles and eight wins at the venue. He recorded his first victory with Mercedes at the track in 2013, and has won all of the last three races at the circuit.
