Any clues?3rd February 2017, 13:40 at 1:40 pm #334715
Have they all run their own race teams once retired from F1?29th January 2017, 19:33 at 7:33 pm #334580
Hill and Alonso have finished 3rd in the championship once, with Ricciardo twice, but Diniz is the curve ball there.
When you say ‘careers’, is that F1 career or entire driving career?29th January 2017, 17:35 at 5:35 pm #334576
Did they all make their F1 debut at a team that folded during their F1 career?29th January 2017, 15:37 at 3:37 pm #334571
Nick’s on the money, well done.
I deliberately tried to throw people off by choosing 4 honorary European GPs also won by 4 different Brits.29th January 2017, 13:16 at 1:16 pm #33456929th January 2017, 10:01 at 10:01 am #334566
Ah cool. Downside is thinking of the next question! Try this one…
1956 Italian GP
1958 Belgian GP
1963 Monaco GP
1977 British GP28th January 2017, 18:06 at 6:06 pm #334555
They all won the Constructors’ Championship the year after Ferrari?
Or is it more specific than that?24th January 2017, 14:46 at 2:46 pm #334444
I think Nick is correct.
I was trying to be too smart by thinking that not only were their first race wins in wet conditions, but also not full distance, but unfortunately (for me) Hungary 2006 (Button) was completed as planned and France 1975 (Prost) was an aggregate 2-parter, but full miles were completed.16th August 2016, 2:59 at 2:59 am #326625
Why? Because sponsors and marketing.
On a serious note, I’d really like to see some real footage from this run. The sand being kicked up looked pretty cool. Would like to see some sandy donuts too.16th July 2016, 1:32 at 1:32 am #325031
Well the price is unsurprisingly ridiculous. I can only see pubs going for this, but on a technical level, they say you get all these things in Ultra HD (4k), but realistically how much of their output is genuinely 4k and not just upscaled (which is cheating and not true ultra HD)?
Are FOM 4k equipped yet? End of the day if FOM can’t do 4k, then Sky can’t give you 4k.
Also in their marketing, they say about their 170 football games. That is all their games and I know for a fact that there are fewer than ten 4k equipped OB trucks in the UK (ironically BTW sport has one – it did last year’s British Moto GP) so sounds like you’re gonna be fleeced after they rip you off!
And to think, NHK in Japan want to broadcast the 2020 Olympics in 8k!21st March 2016, 12:52 at 12:52 pm #315883
I though C4 coverage was not too bad. Webber and Coulthard work well together. Still 50/50 on Jones. Not bad, but not great.
Biggest disappointment for me was Ben Edwards. I really liked him back when he did BTCC, but he was worse than Murray Walker at his most befuddled. Edwards didn’t seem to gave a clue bout the new quali rules (so another bonus that we’re reverting again) and i just find myself screaming at the TV correcting him.17th February 2016, 14:16 at 2:16 pm #312434
With three hairpins, all I can think of is that 1st A1-GP in China where they couldn’t make it around that hairpin!16th June 2015, 23:04 at 11:04 pm #300162
I can’t really remember crying tears of joy as such, although I do get over excited and start bouncing around occasionally, but in terms of crying sadness, I’m probably a bit too emotional at times.
For obvious reasons Japan 2014 was very upsetting. My girlfriend came into the room to ask me why the race had stopped and I couldn’t get any words out. That was before we knew any facts other than something was terribly wrong.
I had a similar feeling after Dario Franchitti’s crash at Houston 2013. The impact had me fearing the worst and again shock got the better of me. Before that, seeing Dan Wheldon’s crash.
God how morbid this post has become. Sorry28th May 2015, 22:41 at 10:41 pm #299137
Thank you for posting this. There is so much to love about this video. I would have loved to be alive to witness that era. Yes its very much rose tinted glasses, as there’s no trace of the horrible tragedies of the time. Maybe its the lack of overt marketing or commercialisation of it?
Raidillon and Eau Rouge look magnificent. You can barely imagine La Source used to look like that before the new pits were built (and rebuilt). Blanchimont looks positively demonic with nothing but trees on the outside. Even with only 13 cars, the footage makes it look great, and only 8s in it at the end! (granted, both Mercedes were almost 2 mins ahead of 3rd place – shows how times have changed! lol)
Jean Behra is mental for happily taking over his teammate’s car after crashing his own.
Kinda funny/mental when a car comes past the ‘pits’ in the rain and showers everyone in spray. Gives me memories of walking home in the rain and getting soaked by a lorry through a puddle!
