I thought it might be something to do with doing something at milestone GPs (100th, 200th etc) but that doesn't fit either.

Or maybe winning something in a leap year?
 
Maybe the world championship and something else in a leap year.
 
1964, 1972, 1980, 1988, 1991, 1996, ???  , 2008, 2015
 
No - that doesn't quite work


It might instead be connected to the Summer Olympics, US presidential elections or some other event that occurs on leap years.

Might be Ferrari's century races. Currently 961 so in about two years there will be 1000th.

 

700th was Belgian GP 2004, won by Kimi Räikkönen.

Nice one Bleu. This is in fact correct.  :up:

 

Drivers who won on Ferrari's century races. Here are those races https://www.racefans...races-in-stats/ Although I did have to do a bit of research to find the race winners for each of those races.

 

Your turn!

I've looked at everything mentioned above, milestone races, even tried 120,220 etc as well as 150, 250 etc. The fact that it will happen again in two years suggested time or maybe rules change, neither work. If it were a Ferrari thing, how are Senna, Hill etc included. All drivers listed point to milestone +100 races but it falls down at hurdle one from what I can see. Lots of looking going on but not a lot of posting because we're currently stumped.

Nelson Piquet - X

Michael Schumacher - Rubens Barrichello

Sebastian Vettel - Felipe Massa

 

So that's two pairings given and one driver on the third one. So who's X?

It's the link between Massa and Vettel that I'm struggling with. 

Don't give any hints yet though.

Vettel was champion the year Massa's career got destroyed by a team order, Schumacher was champion the year Barrichello's career was destroyed by a team order… who had a bad case of TOs in 1981/1983/1987?  :stoned:

This is probably a driver that has returned from a life threatening injury + the WDC on that year (of the return).

 

Though you would have to include Damon Hill - Mika Hakkinen (96).

 

I would guess it is Piquet - Tambay (83)

That's too subjective - so it's not correct.

Based on this, are they the 1-2 podium finishers on the 3 occasions a Japanese has made the podium?

Kobayashi at Japan 2012, Sato at US 2004
So the first one is Aguri Suzuki at Japan 1990, making the missing man Roberto Moreno?

And the 2 ????s are the same driver.

A perfect number in numerology.

 

Well. With F1 grid numbering they can only be 6 and 28.

 

The next one is 496 and nobody has ever driven with that number.

 

However, I can not see the connection to the sequence with that hint.

Taking as many wins in a WDC season as what is your car number for that year?

The first six in that list never won races in a season where the car numbers were fixed for the year (kind of came in mid-73, Stewart's last season, although he did run 5 for the most of it, and win 5 races)

Probably I should send a question since lonestarstraits hasn't posted for about two weeks now.
 
Graham Hill / Jim Clark
X / X
Emerson Fittipaldi / Jean-Pierre Beltoise
Niki Lauda / Carlos Reutemann
X / X
Fernando Alonso / Kimi Räikkönen
 
So there are six driver pairings, somehow connected to each other. Find out four X's. Chronological order, Indy 500 between 1950-1960 is excluded from the question.

I stumbled across this name the other day while looking at wiki, I think that it is something about first and last wins for certain teams. I cannot tie that in with Fred and Kimi, however.

The pole sitter and the person who actually qualified fastest at Monaco where they aren't the same person? The Indy bit confused me though...

I can't tie in Fernando and Kimi as well as the latter winning his first Grand Prix in the year the first driver became World Champion.

The Indy pole sitter often wasn't the fastest qualifier.

Maybe it is linked to Indy but most of the drivers in the list haven't raced at Indy...I think I'm barking up the wrong tree here..

^ highly likely the answer is about the #2 car

 

Could well be getting the pole, win and fastest lap in the #2 car

 

1. Alberto Ascari 1953 Dutch GP

2. Jack Brabham 1960 Belguim GP

3. John Surtees 1964 Italian GP

4. Jochen Rindt 1969 US GP

5. Jackie Stewart 1969 French GP

6. Jacky Ickx 1971 Dutch GP

7. Clay Regazzoni 1976 US West GP

8. Carlos Reutemann 1981 Belgium GP

9. Alain Prost 1985 Austrian GP

10. Alain Prost 1993 South African GP

11. Alain Prost 1993 San Marino GP

12. Rubens Barrichello 2003 British GP

13. Rubens Barrichello 2003 Italian GP

14. Lewis Hamilton 2007 Japanese GP

15. ???? Felipe Massa 2008 European GP

16. ???? Felipe Massa 2008 Brazilian GP

 

My only problem with this is that Stewart and Rindt should be swapped around if the list is in chronological order.

The most unusual things I have heard about him was that he supposedly could be insecure in daily traffic and the fact that he was the only ``furr'ner` who got AJ Foyt's respect in the mid 60s.....
