With his Saudi Arabian Grand Prix qualifying masterclass, Sergio Perez finally shifted an unwanted Formula 1 record.

Prior to arriving in Jeddah, the Red Bull driver hadn’t secured pole position in 216 qualifying attempts – more than any other driver in F1 history.

But now he’s departed that list, what does the top 20 look like now? We’ve given you a hint of the years they raced in F1 as well as the number of grand prix entries (not starts) of each driver.

Test your knowledge of those nearly-men (in most cases), and let us know how you got on in the comments below or by tweeting to @wearetherace, and be mindful of spoilers.
