Can you name all the cars and drivers in the intro for the sky coverage? (i'm missing one) but lets see how you get on. "there is a star that lights the world" that one.

Ok I'll have a go:

0.03s - Vanwall VW5
0.04s - Mercedes W196
0.08s - Fangio in Maserati 250F
0.09s - Alfa Romeo 158
0.12s - Lotus 49
0.14s - Cooper-Maserati T86 leads BRM P261 leads Ferrari 312
0.15s - Brabham BT24
0.16s - BRM P57
0.18s - Tyrrell 006
0.19s - Lotus 77
0.20 - Too quick to tell but its probably a 73 BRM or an ISO Williams
0.22 - McLaren M23
0.23 - Lotus 95T
0.25s - McLaren MP4/2C leads Williams FW11 & Ligier JS27
0.26s - McLaren MP4/6
0.26s - Williams FW17 (or maybe 16 or 18 its hard to tell)
0.27s - Ferrari F2003 & Renault R23
0.28s - Ferrari F2000
0.28s - McLaren MP4/22
0.39s - Red Bull RB8

That took longer than I thought it would! I'm possibly wrong in a couple of places especially more recent cars which are much less distinctive.

I think in 1995 Hill had an "Andersen Consulting" logo on the chin area of his helmet so think it might be an FW16.

oo impressive, I'll try and throw the drivers in as much as I can.

0.03s - Vanwall VW5 - probably Moss's car as he ran with 18 the most, I would imagine its a mechanic in it though!
0.04s - Mercedes W196 - at either the Belgian or British GP 1955, I think its Spa. Fangio, Moss and Klings cars
0.05s - Fangio
0.06s - Moss
0.07s - Start of the 1950 European GP at Silverstone, the first World Championship race. (With no ferraris attending just to remind the tifosi!)
0.08s - Fangio in Maserati 250F
0.09s - Alfa Romeo 158 think its at Silverstone which makes it Farina.
0.10s - Moss in the foreground, Hawthorn in the background
0.12s - Lotus 49 - Think its at the 1967 German GP, Clark lighting up the wheels, Hulme in the Brabham next to him, Bruce McLaren in the Eagle behind
0.14s - Cooper-Maserati T86 leads BRM P261 leads Ferrari 312 - I think thats Spa 1967 and the clip is actually mirrored! Rindt, Stewart then Parkes (followed by Amon and Surtees)
0.15s - Brabham BT24 - Hulme again
0.16s - BRM P57 - Graham Hill
0.17s - Jackie Stewart
0.17s - The start of 1972 Brands Hatch I think, Theres a McLaren, 2 BRM's and a Lotus in there.
0.18s - Tyrrell 006 - JYS at Barcelona, Proceded by Mike Beuttler's March.
0.19s - Lotus 77 - Gunnar Nilsson
0.20 - Too quick to tell but its probably a 73 BRM or an ISO Williams - I actually think its a McLaren M23
0.21 - Hunt running
0.22 - McLaren M23 - Hunt
0.23 - Lotus 95T with Mansell falling about. Dallas
0.25s - McLaren MP4/2C leads Williams FW11 & Ligier JS27, Prost, Mansell, Alliot Adelaide 1986
0.26s - McLaren MP4/6 - Senna Monaco
0.26s - Williams FW17 (or maybe 16 or 18 its hard to tell) - 16 I think, Damon, (I think its Estoril but that might be rubbish)
0.27s - Ferrari F2003 & Renault R23 Schuie and I think its Trulli
0.28s - Ferrari F2000 - Schuie F2001 (wasn't #1 in 2000)
0.28s - McLaren MP4/22 - Lewis Hamilton, Canada
Then its Clark, Hunt, Senna, Schumacher, Alonso, Hamilton, Button, Vettel ( with His RB7 Alonso's Ferrari 150 and Buttons McLaren MP 4-26 in the background)
0.39s - Red Bull RB8

What about the button, exhaust pipe and pressure gauge at 0:11? A true enthusiast would know, not that I am one. :p

The Williams with Damon in it is the FW16. The air intake is too rounded to be the FW17 and the car lacks the 1996 mandated high cockpit sides to be the 18. The 16 had a semi-circular intake. The 17's was more triangular.

The shot looks familiar and I suspect it's from pre-season testing and not from the Portuguese GP. It is definitely Estoril. In fact looking closely, the mirrors are white. Early in the season the cars had white mirrors. From Imola onwards they had blue mirrors. So it must be pre-season.

I bet someone on TNF could probably get the exhaust maybe even the gauge, I dunno if Smiths gauges were exclusive or universal.

Ah thanks LB good to see I didn't do too bad. The old cars are far more distinctive and interesting than the new ones aren't they?

To be honest you got most of the numbers I'm more like oh thats a Lotus or a BRM!
