I worked out before that Mika Hakkinen and Michael Schumacher were the first two drivers home in Grand Prix's on twelve occasions. This raised an interesting question - does anyone have a list of driver combinations who took the most 1-2 finishes? I think it'd be quite interesting to see.

Only by team-mates ....

Senna/Prost 14
Mansell/Patrese 8
Stewart/Cevert 6
Mansell/Piquet 6
Hill/Villeneuve 6

That list is from GP Data Book 3, which is only up to the end of 1996. Schumacher/Irvine? Schumacher/Barrichello? Hakkinen/Coulthard?

I calculated Senna/Prost just before, I think 20 in total.

If no one can produce a list, i might try and give it a go this weekend, last one before I am back to school...

I hope my workings agree with Forix, but Schumacher & Barrichello have now equalled Senna and Prost's 14 1-2s with their staged(?) finish at Indy last weekend. That's what I told Sky so I hope I'm right. Between the Ferrari drivers they have finished first & second 8 times this season, including the last 4 (yawn), so added to their previous total of 6 that makes 14.
Another record to be broken by the Ferrari boys in Japan I wonder.
We hope to include a full table in the 4th GP Data Book which should be out again some time next year - fingers crossed.

How about Jones/Reutemann and Reutemann/Jones?

And Fangio/Ascari and Ascari/Fangio?

I had a bit of spare time today (well actually the whole day...how I love holidays), so I went through some books and got this. I did it quickly so there may be inaccuricies, but it's safe to say Prost/Senna is #1.

Alain Prost/Ayrton Senna 23
Nigel Mansell/Ayrton Senna 14
Rubens Barrichello/Michael Schumacher 14
Mika Hakkinen/David Coulthard 13
Michael Schumacher/Damon Hill 12
Mika Hakkinen/Michael Schumacher 12
Nigel Mansell/Alain Prost 11
Alain Prost/Nelson Piquet 9
Nigel Mansell/Riccardo Patrese 8
Jim Clark/Graham Hill 7
Ayrton Senna/Nelson Piquet 7
Juan Manuel Fangio/Stirling Moss 7
Damon Hill/Jacques Villeneuve 6
Nigel Mansell/Nelson Piquet 6
Alain Prost/Niki Lauda 5
Juan Manuel Fangio/Alberto Ascari 4
Michael Schumacher/Eddie Irvine 4
Niki Lauda/James Hunt 3
Wolfgang von Trips/Phil Hill 3
Niki Lauda/Clay Regazzoni 3
Jacques Villeneuve/Michael Schumacher 2
Juan Montoya/Ralf Schumacher 1
Ralf Schumacher/Damon Hill 1
Johnny Herbert/Jarno Trulli 1
