Are these all F1 drivers who started more CART races than they did F1 races?29th April 2017, 7:36 at 7:36 am #341273
@fintard96 They may be but there must be hundreds of drivers for whom that’s the case – this is a bit more specific.29th April 2017, 8:45 at 8:45 am #341275Euro BrunParticipant
Is it a topical question?
Do they all have at least one Indy 500 pole?29th April 2017, 21:23 at 9:23 pm #341389
@Eurobrun They are indeed all F1 drivers who’ve started the Indy 500 from pole position!
Over to you…1st May 2017, 10:19 at 10:19 am #341581
OK as @eurobrun hasn’t replied yet I’m going to be cheeky and throw out another one. What connects these four drivers:
Rene Arnoux3rd May 2017, 10:16 at 10:16 am #341680IvanParticipant
Are these drivers who raced for teams of their nationality?
Hill – Williams
Collins – various teams
Hamilton – McLaren
Arnoux – Renault
Edit: If I’m on the right track I’d add on by saying that they won races for these teams, although for Collins it would be in a non-championship race with Owen Racing Organisation.3rd May 2017, 13:46 at 1:46 pm #341711
@wpinrui Afraid you’re not on the right track there! There’s something much more unusual which connects them…3rd May 2017, 15:57 at 3:57 pm #3417133rd May 2017, 20:27 at 8:27 pm #341714
@davidnotcoulthard That does indeed connect all four of them, despite the fact it’s not what I had in mind!
The connection I was going for was that they all scored their first two wins consecutively – a feat Valtteri Bottas can emulate at the next race in Spain.
But as we’ve got another perfectly good connection it’s over to you @davidnotcoulthard…20th May 2017, 15:31 at 3:31 pm #342563David Not CoulthardParticipant
@keithcollantine Whoops forgot about this one – should’ve said this 2 weeks ago but I’d rather you do the next question!20th May 2017, 18:18 at 6:18 pm #342565
Very well then.
Who comes next in this sequence:
?23rd May 2017, 8:28 at 8:28 am #342638RonanskieParticipant
Could it be Bob Sweikert? All 3 drivers are grand prix winners who retired from racing in the order of the sequence and the last grand prix winner to retire from racing before Piero Taruffi is Bob Sweikert.23rd May 2017, 8:54 at 8:54 am #342640
@Ronanskie Nope, that’s not it.
As a hint, the next in the sequence is that last in the sequence.4th June 2017, 5:30 at 5:30 am #343493Zoom out TV director! pls.Participant
So Farina won the f1 world championship, Sam Hanks won the Indy 500, Piero Taruffi won the mille miglia, so only the winner 24 hours of LeMans left, is it Mike Hawthorne?5th June 2017, 20:00 at 8:00 pm #343521
