    Surprised this hasn’t been mentioned anywhere, but today Paul Pietsch has become the first World Championship F1 driver to reach the grand old age of 100. His career was mainly before World War II, however he did compete in 3 World Championship races in its early years, finishing none of them.

    The next oldest living World Championship F1 driver is 94-year-old Robert Manzon, so we are at least 5 years away from our next centenarian.

    José Froilan Gonzalez is the oldest living winner of a Grand Prix.

    Wow, thanks for letting us know Paul (Gilb), that’s something I’ve never really thought of before. Only 58 years before Michael Schumacher reaches that milestone too!

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he was still racing at 100 Ned!
