For instance, the last time Nick Heidfeld finished any race in 1st place was back in July 1999 at an F3000 event in A1 GP. A decade or so toiling away in the midfield of GP racing produced 8 2nd places, but no wins.
In the autumn of 1985, Michele Alboreto was dreaming of World Championship glory. The next time he won a race appears to be Le Mans in 1997, over 11 years later.
I'm sure a large majority of competitors, especially in club events, may never win a race in their entire "careers", or guys that used to compete at the back of NASCAR or BTCC for season after season, so I'm wondering, any notable streaks for drivers that got near the top of the racing tree, but didn't actually win anything for long periods.
