But was the European GP then part of the World Championship? If so totally relevant to the question if not it is irrellavant. My vague knowledge of the World Championship starts in the late 50s.
The so called modern championship started in the early 50s?
What we try to point out is, that a GP in the twenties was regarded of much HIGHER status than a Chinese GP of today. It was one of three or four events the motor racing world did focus on months before, like Le Mans or the Monte Carlo Rallye. The introduction of the World Championship was not the introduction of a new category of motor sport, but did "connect" events together that previously had been strong enough to stand very much alone.
And sorry, the title of this thread is for "GP" wins - and not for "formula 1 world championship rounds".
