French drivers who won a race for Ligier?
3 Dutch flags? Is that South Africa? Did they all win the South African GP?
@davidnotcoulthard you got it with the second one! They all signed off their careers with a 2nd place finish.
Okay, next one…
I’ve been scouring their Wiki pages trying to find a connection and have noticed one unusual similarity – is it that they were all disqualified from 2 races in the same year?
Mansell – ’89
Schumacher – ’94
Montoya – ’04
Sato – ’05
Not quite F1, but Colton Herta (son of IndyCar race winner and current team owner Bryan) will be 18 next year and is doing well in European junior formulas.
1999 is a good watch. Chaos from the start – plus that mad restart when Hakkinen couldn’t get going.
@brickles too easy! I’ll give you that, they were all stripped of race victories in those seasons, although Schumacher was DQ’d because of a technical infraction (too much wear on the plank in Belgium), unless there was another incident I’m forgetting about…
Anyway, your turn!
Cheers! Here’s one for
you! What links:
James Hunt in 1976
Ayrton Senna in 1989
Michael Schumacher in 1994
Lewis Hamilton in 2008
Drivers who failed to win a race in a season when their teammate won the championship?
2001 – Barrichello
1990 – Berger
2013 – Webber
1986 – Keke Rosberg
I absolutely loathe the Daily Mail and fully agree with Wikipedia’s stance — but I personally have no problem with it being on the round-up. The sources are very clearly cited (which isn’t always the case on Wikipedia), and it’s not like F1 Fanatic is asserting what appears in the round-up as fact. Most of us know what sources we should treat with caution, anyway. Most of all, I just find it interesting to see what the mainstream media talk about when they talk about F1, even if it is nonsense.
You’ve got it, @eurobrun, they all succeeded Ferrari as constructors champions. Over to you!
Still not there. It is to do with them winning the constructors champs but not to do with individual race results. Check what happened in the previous seasons …
These teams share a lot more in common than I thought… Okay, nobody’s close yet, so I’ll tell you when the teams achieved this feat:
Williams – 1980
McLaren – 1984
Renault – 2005
Brawn – 2009
As another hint, two other teams meet the criteria — BRM (in 1962) and Lotus (in 1965 AND 1978).
Good answers! Not the ones I’m looking for though… There’s a couple more teams that meet the criteria, but the teams above are the most recent examples (I think)… I’ll reveal the others if nobody gets the answer.
