Who has the highest number of wins from pole position ever?

I’m sure it will come as no surprise to David to learn that it’s yet another record held by Michael Schumacher.

He won 40 races from pole position – the first at Monte-Carlo in 1994, the last at Magny-Cours last year. Read more of Michael Schumacher’s career stats.

Second on the list is Ayrton Senna, with 29. Schumacher’s first win from pole was the first race after Senna’s death.
