Who tops the reliability list for F1 2011?

While one team has perfect finishing record so far in F1 2011, a number of others have work to do to improve...
Red Bull's championship leading form in the 2011 F1 season has been backed up by analysis of the finishing records for the year to date – which show that the Milton Keyne-based outfit if the only one to have completed every racing lap.

Analysis by the German publication Auto Motor und Sport has shown that Red Bull pair Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber have completed all 1362 laps so far this season while also scoring points in all eleven races.

However, it hasn't been all plain sailing for the defending champions, with a series of problems with its KERS throughout the opening half of the campaign.

Although down in seventh place in the championship standings, Force India has benefitted from the reliability of the VJM04 to sit second in the reliability standings having completed 96.0 per cent of the laps thus far, ahead of Ferrari, McLaren and Toro Rosso.

At the other end of the scale, the lap counts don't make welcome reading for either Williams or Team Lotus, with Williams pair Pastor Maldonado and Rubens Barrichello having managed just 84.2 per cent of the available laps and Heikki Kovalainen, Jarno Trulli and Karun Chandhok only completing a total of 77.3 per cent of the maximum laps for Team Lotus.

The two teams are split in the standings by HRT, although the Spanish team failed to take the start of the Australian Grand Prix after neither car qualified, which in turn affects its lap count.

The full lap count, with a maximum of 1362, is as follows:

1. Red Bull 1362 laps 100%
2. Force India 1308 laps 96.0%
3. Ferrari 1273 laps 93.4%
4. McLaren 1261 laps 92.6%
=. Toro Rosso 1261 laps 92.6%
6. Lotus Renault GP 1226 laps 90.0%
7. Sauber 1211 laps 88.9%
8. Mercedes GP 1188 laps 87.2%
9. Marussia Virgin 1186 laps 87.0%
10. Williams 1147 laps 84.2%
11. HRT F1 1084 laps 79.5%
12. Team Lotus 1053 laps 77.3%
