Are those engine makes or are you confusing McLaren with Mercedes?

Definitely engine makes; anyway, the last trace of Renault branding has disappeared from the Genii/Lotus team.

If it makes it any easier to swallow, 2012 campaigner Jenson Button scored a few podiums in 2005 with the "real" Mercedes team. :p

Anyway, compared to how long some of these NASCAR drivers have been going round in circles for, seven years is really nothing. The limiting factor here isn't the drivers themselves, it's the number of competitive rides. :)

I doubt there's confusion by the OP on both McLaren and Lotus, so I guess the link is purely with the engines.

I saw it in some threads already (Schumacher's, Alonso's) and it did put a smile on my face. How things change yet stay the same after such a long time.

Also kinda funny that, taking the Mercedes/Mclaren thing, all three drivers have driven for all three teams on the podium; Schumacher at Benetton, Alonso at Renault, Raikkonen at Lotus; Alonso & Raikkonen at Mclaren, Schumacher at Mercedes; and all three at Ferrari.

If you wanna get really tenuous, one of Michael's helmets has raced in a McLaren... DC at Monaco 96...

I find it surreal sometimes seeing Michael talking about or in a Mercedes instead of Ferrari; I guess thing do change.

I'm taking it that must be the most successful podium based on what they've already acheived?

kimi and schumi were clearly taller than him in 2005, but their height difference has shrunk significantly in 2012! :stoned:

I guess we could have said if there had been Vettel instead of Raikkonen.

And as far as I can see, the only sponsor/partner stayed in Formula 1 is Shell. At least on overalls.

All of them had Andrea Stella as race engineer.
All of them had Massa as teammate.
All of them drive/drove for Ferrari.

Let's hope that at the end of the season we can say that all of them won a WDC with Ferrari :yawnface:

Also, all of them are world champions but all did it in the others' teams.

Alonso now drives for Ferrari but took his WDCs with Enstone.

Schumacher now drives for Mercedes but took his WDCs with Enstone and Ferrari.

Kimi now drives for Enstone but took his WDC with Ferrari.

Apparently this is the 5th time they've shared a podium together but each time Fernando has been the winner. I haven't checked the stats but I'll take planetf1's word for it.

[...]

Unless one the pictures was photoshoped Kimi's posture is 99% the same. Is he really that much of a dead pan?
Schumacher also has his arm around Alonso.

Other than that it's 3 very happy drivers after a race in which they were not favourites.

based on the boring years of the early 2000's, most probably Schumacher, Barrichello, someone.

Senna 1st, Prost 2nd, Berger 3rd certainly occured on quite a few occasions in 1988 and 1990. Maybe more.

That's what I thought. Certainly they have the most 1-2 finishes. But when I looked at stats it was not so evident then.

OK, I got a few:

Senna-Prost-Boutsen 4x (all in 1988)

Mansell-Piquet-Prost 4x (3x 1986, 1x 1987)

Beat that if you can.

they had 3 1-2s with Button, 3 with Montoya, 2 or 3 with Alonso/DC/Ralf, but my 'research' was sloppy, I didn't really care, so maybe correct. :drunk:
