26 DNF for Max in 7 years, mostly because the Renault PU and other mechanical failures.
And Lewis 24 DNF. How many PU and mechanical failures?
Just like to point out that according to StatsF1, Max and Lewis have had the following retirements
Retirements ----- Max - 29 Lewis - 27
Accidents/Collisions ---- Max - 13 ----- Lewis - 12
Races ----- Max - 136 ----- Lewis - 280
Retirement % ----- Max - 21% ----- Lewis - 9%
Accident % ----- Max - 9% ----- Lewis - 4%
So after actually looking at the real stats, it turns out Max has retired far more than Lewis when it comes to accidents. Lewis has less than 1 per season on average, Max has 2 per season on average.
I think a fairer comparison would be Hamilton’s first 136 races where he and Verstappen had more similarly competitive cars.
Going by Wikipiedia, here are retirements from both drivers coming from either collisions or running off track:
Monaco: collision with Grosjean (Vers penalized)
Silverstone: Beaching on gravel
Moncaco: collision (barrier)
Spain: collission with Kimi and Bottas
Austria: Collision with Kyvat Fernando and Max (Kyvat penalized)
Singapore: Collision with Vettel and Kimi
Azerbaijan: Collision with Ricciardo
Belgium: Collision with Perez
Japan: Collision with Leclerc
Tuscan: Collision with Gasly, Kimi and Grosjean
Silverstone: Collision with Lewis. Lewis penalized
Italy: Collision with Lewis. Verstappen penalized
Canada: Collision with Raikonnen in pitlane. Hamilton 10 grid penalty next race
Belgium: Collision with Alguersuari (domino from Grosjean)
Italy: Collision with Massa
Singapore: Collision with Webber
Canada: Collision with Button
Belgium: Collision with Kamui.
Belgium: Collision with Grosjean. Grosjean race ban.
Brazil: Collision with Hülkenberg
Japan: Collision with Webber
Belgium: Collision with Rosberg
Spain: Collision with Rosberg
Italy: Collision with Verstappen. Verstappen penalized.
