Many more driver's titles in that one...

Jack, Jackie and Fearless John, I think that makes six, doesn't it?

A stack more wins, Jackie and Stirling almost double it, then there Jack's and Fearless John's tallies to be added. How many poles and fastest laps?

The eye(brows) to the left have it! :lol:

It's only third on left I'm not sure about, shades and hat obscure it a bit.

Salvadori, Mike Taylor, ? (Vacarella??), Ganley, Bondurant, JYS, Sparken, Thompson, Moss, Parnell, Murray, Surtees

Attwood, Beltoise, de Filippis, Brooks, Allison, Brabham.



It's Trevor Taylor...so a recalculation of GPs is in order.

Changes the number of starts to 685 instead of 662. other stats remain the same.

( And I still have way to much time on my hands!) :rotfl:

Is that an all-inclusive GP total? Bear in mind that in the '50s & '60s a good portion of the races were non-championship & even into the '70s about a third of them were...

Only World Championship Grands Prix. I took my information in both posts from " The Guiness Complete Grand Prix Who's Who" by Steve Small.

F1 Grand Prix Driver's Club (old name: Club International des Anciens Pilotes de Grand Prix F1) has just opened its web site & forum where topics involving F1

& other types of racing can be discussed. I might be guilty of hopeful thinking, but perhaps some of the actual drivers we talk about might feel compelled to comment! Have a look

at some of the members' names.

 

The site is: http://www.f1grandprixdriversclub.com/

 

I will post this same message in other applicable forums, but please spread the word if possible. This is a resource we need to develop.

 

By the way, I found out about the site while at one of the functions during the Monterey Historics' week. I'm wandering around & see Howden Ganley (F1-GPDC President) & a buddy inspecting an ex-Bruce Mclaren Cooper Type 61, among other cars. Here are some photos from that event:

Well found, Layabout!

 

It's a shame, although not surprising, that so few recent drivers are on their list. And when I say recent, I mean 1990's onwards.

 

Berger, Boutsen, Brundle, Coulthard, Dalmas, Hakkinen, Hill, Johansson, Katayama, Kazuki Nakajima (easily the most recent), Prost, Wurz, Zanardi.. that's it. Also suprising there's relatively few in the lift when there's 350 odd living Grand Prix drivers.

Thank you!

 

Good point about the drivers. Hopefully the web site will generate some interest & excitement. It's certainly a good start.

 

It's odd how so many drivers ignore or don't care about their sport's history. Coulthard & Franchetti are certainly exceptions & they are noticeable for being so. About a year ago a friend of mine showed his mid-seventies F1 car to Sebastien Vettel & Sebastian asked where the paddle shifters were. Come on Sebastian, go one more chapter further back....

 

On the other hand old farts like me always complain about the youth.

Bear in mind it's not just the youth of today - there's not that many 1980's drivers there either - Kenneth McAlpine, now in his 95th year, has said in an interview that he has no interest in racing, and you'll note he's not a member of the GPDC. There's a lot of notable names missing on the list, which surprises me - it's the first time I've ever seen a full list of members.

 

McAlpine: (On Ales Norsky's gpfactsandnumbers.com website - interview by David Holland;)

 

Are you still in contact with fellow drivers from that era?

No. I happened to go to party to celebrate the 50th anniversary of BRM and met Stirling Moss. No, I have a philosophy in life that once you’ve finished something there is no point in going back. I’ve gone on flying or sailing or whatever it may be. I am a member of the BRDC) but have been there only once, I think.

 

Will you be going to Silverstone this summer for the retrospective meetings?

No, I’ve done motor racing, been there, done that. Despite the fact that one of my sons and his wife being involved with saloon car racing and helicopters. It really doesn’t intrigue me at all.
