Formula 1 Wiki

The Lap Record for a particular circuit is the fastest time ever recorded in a Formula One Grand Prix around that circuit. For a Lap Record to stand, it must be posted during the race, not in practice or qualifying. Any change in the circuit's layout will mean that a new lap record has to be set.

Due to the cars since the 2017 Formula One season being widened, many Lap Records on current circuits are from the 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 Formula One seasons.

Circuits listed in this page are based on their latest layout configurations and also the latest event held on the venues.
