    The circuits at which drivers scored their first win (most recent first).

    As I can’t think of a new sequence at the moment, we’ll go with Hollis Graham’s sequence next.

    Okay

    #185146

    As this doesn’t seem to have happened, I’ll start a new one. What connects there four drivers:

    Teo Fabi
    Mauricio Gugelmin
    Roberto Moreno
    Cristiano da Matta

    @keithcollantine they all competed in both F1 and Cart/Champcars, or is that not specific enough?

    #185148

    @andae23 There’s a bit more to it than that…

    #334379

    It’s been nearly five years and I’m starting to think @andae23 isn’t going to get this one. Anyone want to take a stab at it or shall I reveal the answer and we can move on with another question?

    @keithcollantine I don’t think this will be correct, but I believe they may have all had drives in Indycar both before and after their entry into F1?

    EDIT: Upon digging, it appears that’s incorrect, but I have another theory: these drivers drove cars that used the same brand of engine in Indycar and F1:

    Da Matta: Toyota
    Moreno: Ford
    Fabi: BMW
    Gugelmin: Ilmor in F1, who I believe built the Chevrolet Indycar engine of the era

    #334384

    @Mathers Nope that’s not it – Fabi did use a German engine in IndyCar but it was a Porsche. I don’t think BMW have ever entered.

    OK here’s a clue: It’s about a difference between their F1 and IndyCar careers.

    @keithcollantine Raced in F1 but never won, raced in Indycar and won?

    #334386

    Finally we have a winner! They are indeed all IndyCar winners who never won in F1.


    @Hugh11
    would you like to set a new question or shall I?

    Woohoo! I won!

    @keithcollantine
    Probably best if you choose a new question, I’m pretty terrible at thinking of them :)

    #334388

    OK here’s one. What connects these three F1 tracks:

    Silverstone
    Spa
    Sepang International Circuit
    Korea International Circuit

    Start/Finish line not on the longest straight of the circuit?
