Only Connect: F1 edition

OK, this may be a tricky one, I’m not sure:
1. Christian Klien
2. Larry Perkins
3. Alan Jones
4. ???5th July 2018, 17:30 at 5:30 pm #371851
Wow. This one has me stumped. OK, chronological, but in reverse, doesn’t really go with it if it’s something they did in F1. Perkins was roughly around the same time as Jones but a liiiiittle bit earlier.
With Klien at number one, can it be related to performances in prototype racing? There are two Aussies, and Klien did race in V8s for a while. Is it V8 Supercar related? I haven’t figured out what yet though. I will leave it for someone else to guess for a while.5th July 2018, 17:47 at 5:47 pm #371855
lol and Wow. You are very close to being on the money. As far as I can work out (and I may very well have overlooked somebody, apologies if that is so) there are two possible answers for No. 4.
Further on in the sequence there is …4. ??? 4. ??? 5. Jacky Ickx ; 5. Jack Brabham ; 6. Stirling Moss …9th July 2018, 11:17 at 11:17 am #372281
OK, I’ll bump this one. With all this talk of Fernando going for the ‘Triple Crown’ I’d thought a question on F1 Drivers racing in other big races was timely. Christopher Rehn was very close in his original thoughts…10th July 2018, 12:02 at 12:02 pm #372394
Alright. Bathurst 1000?
If so, maybe Denny Hulme. He died at the Bathurst 1000.11th July 2018, 12:31 at 12:31 pm #372414
That is correct. David Brabham would have been the other correct answer
Most recent ex-formula 1 drivers to race at the Bathurst 1000 (as far as I can work out) –
2012 – Christian Klein
2003 – Larry Perkins
2002 – Alan Jones
1992 – Denny Hulme & David Brabham
1978 – Jack Brabham & Jacky Ickx
1976 – Stirling Moss
And yes, you were right about Denny – I was there that day in 1992, was extremely sad when everyone heard the news … we just thought he had parked up on the wall on Conrod straight with some mechanical problem. Wasn’t till much later that we heard about the heart attack.
(Now for you you British out there – please note that in AussieLand, the ‘Bath’ in Bathurst is pronounced sounding like ‘math’, not like what the misses tells you to go have or some southwestern English town name ok…)
Your turn again Christopher Rehn.12th July 2018, 14:06 at 2:06 pm #372428
Oh boy. Ok, let’s think.
No, the answer is not 12. I promise!12th July 2018, 15:23 at 3:23 pm #372431AnonymousInactive
@chrischrill is the answer 13? Record for most pole positions without a championship.
Rene Arnoux=18 poles
Stirling Moss=16 poles
Rubens Barrichello/Ronnie Peterson=14 poles
Jacky Ickx/Juan Pablo Montoya/Mark Webber=13 poles
Either that’s right, I’ve made a royal mess up or this is an incredible coincidence12th July 2018, 16:20 at 4:20 pm #372432
That is in fact not correct. Incredible coincidence indeed. It’s not poles, or wins/podiums, or even races at all.13th July 2018, 3:35 at 3:35 am #372441
@chrischrill Is it related to car number then ? .. If so, my guess would be No. 14 again (Mark Webber, 2004 – last year of the Jaguar name)13th July 2018, 9:33 at 9:33 am #372442
Nope, not a car number.
The number is related to places/locations.16th July 2018, 9:24 at 9:24 am #372487
Not entirely sure what other clues to give this, other than this sequence is related to the 2018 season.17th July 2018, 14:46 at 2:46 pm #372570AnonymousInactive
Number of separate race winners for events on this years calendar ?18th July 2018, 14:58 at 2:58 pm #372637
That isn’t it either. It’s related to some of the circuits of this year’s calendar. This is as specific a clue as I can give.18th July 2018, 15:02 at 3:02 pm #372638TheNikiiParticipant
It’s 20. Number of corners Spa has.
