To get a pole position is always difficult. Many Formula One drivers will never get one in their career. And that is what this list is about. The driver who drove the most Formula 1 races without a pole position.

The driver who is on top of this list is Romain Grosjean with 181 starts without a pole position. In second and third place we find Martin Brundle and Johnny Herbert with both 165 Grand Prix's. It's funny to see Herbert in this list as he secures, besides Romain and Martin, victories in Formula 1.

Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly are also moving up in this list. With 128 races for Esteban and 125 for Pierre they are on their way to top this list. They both had never a pole position. Lucky they both won a race :) and did more than one race. Maybe there luck is on their side this weekend.
