The European Grand Prix will feature 11 race winners at the start. They are: Raikkonen, Massa, Kubica, Alonso, Coulthard, Trulli, Button, Barrichello, Fisichella, Hamilton and Heikki Kovalainen, who won his maiden race in Hungary.
It's the first time in four years that such a high number of winners have entered a race weekend. The last time 11 winners were present at the start of a grand prix was in the 2004 Japanese Grand Prix: Michael and Ralf Schumacher, Coulthard, Jacques Villeneuve, Barrichello, Montoya, Raikkonen, Panis, Trulli, Fisichella and Alonso.
The highest number of winners at the start of a race is 15 and was reached twice in Formula One history: in the 1978 Belgian and Spanish Grand Prix. They were: Niki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi, James Hunt, Ronnie Peterson, Jacky Ickx, Jody Scheckter, Carlos Reutemann, Mario Andretti, Clay Regazzoni, Jacques Laffite, Alan Jones, John Watson, Vittorio Brambilla, Jochen Mass and Patrick Depailler.
