Although I haven't missed a race in 25+ years, I might have fell asleep during some of the Vettel/Red Bull years -- did Mr. Red Mist ever pass anyone for the lead/win?
This is a comically irrelevant statistic. And BTW, HAM and ALO each received 109 points.

And one more note: I'm sure that if you did the math, you'd find that "the anointed one" started from pole much more often than Vettel. Talk about someone who's never had to pass.
