An unwanted new record looms for Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone this weekend
The tale of Lewis Hamilton in Formula 1 is that of unprecedented success on many levels, hence why it seems almost unusual that he has gone 10 races without a win.
An 11th at Silverstone this weekend would see Lewis Hamilton go on the longest winless streak in his career. For a driver who has won 34.7% of his race starts, even four without a victory actually lowers his overall win ratio - which in itself is staggering.
In a Mercedes which has faltered at the start of Formula 1's new era, the seven-time World Champion admitted he has played the guinea pig role for the team's many experiments as they search for a way back to the head of the field.
Planet Sport looks at his four previous 10-race barren spells.

Hamilton had opted to leave McLaren for pastures new at the end of 2012, making a move to Mercedes which raised eyebrows, and even derided in some quarters.
