Hello, I want to know who are the 2 drivers in formula history who drove the hugest number of races together?

I know :


Coulthard : Barrichello :

1990 : GM Lotus Euroseries (totally 11 + 1 races but David missed afaik 1 or more races because of an injury - was it a broken leg?)
1990 : British F. Vauxhall (Rubens took part in 4 races but David again missed 1 or 2 races)
1990 : Nations Cup (1 race)
1991 : British F3 (16 races) + 3 international F3 races
1992 : F3000 (10 races) + Macau F3 (1 race)
1993 : --- (Barrichello : F1, Coulthard F3000)
1994 : F1 (8 common races after the death of Senna and before Coulthard being replaced by Mansell)
1995 : F1 (17 races)
1996 : F1 (16 races)
1997 : F1 (17 races)
1998 : F1 (16 races)
1999 : F1 (16 races)
2000 : F1 (17 races)
2001 : F1 (17 races)
2002 : F1 (15 races, Rubens failing to start in Spain and France)
2003 : F1 (16 races)
2004 : F1 (18 races)
2005 : F1 (18 races, David missing the Indy GP)
2006 : F1 (18 races)
2007 : F1 (17 races)
2008 : F1 (11 races)


That makes about 280 common races and there will be a few more.

Is there any pair who drove more races together?


Thanks.

The answer probably lies in the USA where most professional drivers raced in a variety of formulae, midgets, indycars, stock cars etc, over longer periods than in Europe (eg AJ and Mario), and in a fuller calendar (particularly midgets, sprintcars and NASCAR.)

Shoul we include karts? Most of the current crop of F1 drivers have been racing against each other for years.

Yes, I believe as well it will be some pair racing in the US motorsport scene.

Well, basically I thought about formula sport but why shouldn't we extend it to other motorsport categories ... But perhaps we should separate formula sports from NASCAR, sprint races, touring cars, etc.?

For kart racing it will be hard to find out each race ,won't it? Or has anybody a multitude of karting results???
I don't have any.
