New Vital F1 article: How reliability reduces F1’s records

Just lately there has been a lot of focus on Ayrton Senna's total of 41 Grand Prix wins, and current drivers getting with it. Sebastian Vettel nosed ahead of Senna with his Singapore win, while Lewis Hamilton matched his late hero's mark in Japan.
