Ferrari have the best reliability record, with just 2 mechanical DNF's (both Alonso - Italy and Japan) and 3 DNF's in total.
McLaren also have 3 DNF's, but all were unreliability related.
Williams have 4 DNF's, with 2 being unreliability and 2 being Massa crashing on the opening lap.
Red Bull have 4 DNF's - All were unreliability related
Force India have 5 DNF's and 1 DNS - with the DNS and one DNF being unreliability related.
Then come Mercedes, with 5 DNF's of which 4 were unreliability related.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Formu ... rands_Prix
As an interesting point, the only driver in the top 5 teams that has not had one reliability problem all season is Raikkonen - and yet of all 10 drivers he has the lowest points total
