If you thought McLaren-Honda's well publicised reliability troubles mean it has completed the fewest racing laps this season, you may be surprised to find out it hasn't.

In fact, if you're a Max Verstappen fan, you may want to look away now as these are the race laps completed so far this season. Then again if you're a Force India fan, it's much happier news!

In the interests of fairness, it is worth pointing out that McLaren-Honda has completed the fewest laps in total in 2017 (including practice and qualifying) with a paltry 1812, though Renault next up with 1856. Red Bull has completed 1953 laps total this season.

For comparison during the first season of V6 Hybrid power unit use - Ferrari has a 100 per cent finish rate, albeit losing three laps during races where Fernando Alonso or Kimi Raikkonen were lapped.
