    @andae23 is correct.

    Ok, when was the last time the podium contained cars with numbers 1, 2 and 3 in that order (i.e. 1st = car 1 etc.)? If I’m right, fourth position was also car 4.

    Oh, it’s Bernie.

    I thought he looked familiar, but I couldn’t quite pick him earlier. Wasn’t he just driving the car around in an attempt to sell it or the team on?

    Looks like Monaco in the late 1950s, but despite the driver looking familiar I can’t quite pick him.

    Ryan Williams is correct. I could be mistaken, but while looking this up somebody claimed that Denny Hulme ended up inheriting one of his first F1 (non-championship) drives from Lawton, who was signed to drive that car before he died.
    Over to you @ryanwilliams

    Sorry for the delays guys, internet wasn’t cooperating last few days.

    Which two drivers was co-recipients of the New Zealand Driver to Europe scholarship in 1960?

    In addition to prisoner monkeys’ answer, I think the last sector at Interlagos is all left. Not sure about Monza, from memory the last sector starts before the Ascari chicane.

    Also, while the question appears to be dead now, in addition to what sigman said, I can think of Gurney, Donahue, Bobby Rahal (I think), Revson, Ginther, and Sullivan. I’m sure there are more obscure ones though.

    @sigman1998
    Yes, Nicos/Nick at Abu Dhabi in 2010. I thought it was the Sebastiens before I had a check while compiling the question.
    Over to you.

    I am assuming yes to my answer then, given I gave the only unedited answer.

    Ok, an easy one maybe, when was the last race where three drivers with the same first name competed. Different spellings of the same name depending on language (for example, Marcus, Marko & Mark) would be considered the same name.

    I had a quick look at earlier seasons, given the lower number of races I thought there might be one year in there where there were a few winners. So I’m going to amend my answer, as if you count shared wins then 1951 had 8 races for 6 winners, which is 1.25.

    My guess would have to be 1982 given the large number of different race winners that year. So that would be 16/11, or 1.45.

    @prisoner-monkeys has covered some of the very valid reasons we Aussies suffer through F1. Add “Australia’s Daniel Riccardo” to “Australia’s Mark Webber”. Also the drop from HD to SD this year really shows.
    When the Sky/Beeb feed fails, we have to suffer through their commentary, which is just them recounting exactly what we can see on our screens. And they also make James Allen look professional and impartial, which is a feat in and of itself. They have improved somewhat in recent years however, with the exception of Baird. They also make sure to flood the home GP coverage with vacuous interviews (Qantas Lounge) and insipid ads for doomed to failed breakfast TV shows.

    As for ads every 10 laps, that’s obviously working on last year’s schedule. Since it moved to channel 10 from One HD, we get at least 6 ad breaks during short races, more for longer ones. They usually hold off for the first and last 15 minutes, which means we are lucky to get 6 uninterrupted laps of coverage during the middle portion of the race. Silverstone 2011: “We’ll wait for Button’s pit stop, and there you go, ad break time” while ignoring the fact that his wheel was falling off while driving out of the pits. I managed to bring up a stream off the net before they were even back from the ad break.

    The sad thing is, this is easily the best coverage of F1 Australia has ever got. I shudder to think what would happen if Channel 9 ever got the coverage back.

    Ironic really, considering that Australians usually try to find feeds from other countries to avoid the Australian coverage. It will be interrupted by ads, and if my previous experience streaming anything off Australian TV websites holds, it will be poor quality and constantly buffering.
    As for legality, the VPN issue is a grey one as I understand it. It breaks the company’s terms of service, but I don’t think the legality has ever been fully tested. Assume it’s not however.

    Obviously not Australian guys, they are driving on the right if you look at the arrows on the road…

    My guess in Phoenix, a right turn like that. Although Baltimore is a good guess too.
