In motorsport, the fastest lap is the quickest lap run during a race. Some series, like A1 Grand Prix and the GP2 series, award bonus points to the driver/team with the fastest lap. In Formula One, where until 1960 drivers were awarded a point for setting fastest lap, Michael Schumacher holds the current record for the most fastest laps with 77.
In Formula One, 126 different drivers have made fastest race laps. German driver Michael Schumacher has achieved the highest number of fastest laps with 77. He is followed by Frenchman Alain Prost with 41 and Finnish driver Kimi Räikkönen with 39. Since 2007, an award is given to the driver with the most fastest laps in a season.
