Yasss, that is it. The sequence begun with Silverstone, followed by Hockenheim and Hungaroring. 20 is Spa.
Your turn.18th July 2018, 15:39 at 3:39 pm #372640TheNikiiParticipant

Correct!3rd December 2018, 14:49 at 2:49 pm #382823
@thenikii And it only took me four-and-a-half months!
The connection was the finishing order of the 1969 Italian Grand Prix, these four were covered by less than two tenths of a second. (Unless @thenikii has another, more cunning connection…)
OK time for a new question – can anyone finish this sequence:
28: Philippe Adams
22: Eugene Martin
14: Antonio Giovinazzi

OK I think a tip is needed so here goes:
There are two possible answers but only one connection.7th December 2018, 18:29 at 6:29 pm #383005SteveParticipant
Had posted this in response to you on twitter a couple or so days ago – anywhere near?
They’ve all only started 2 GP; number is the number of days between their first and last GP start? However there are others on 14 days (e.g. Toshio Suzuki ‘93) and also some on 7 (e.g. Franck Lagorce ‘94, Bobby Rahal ‘78)… 🤔?

@juniormoose Sorry I get so many replies on Twitter these days! But you’re right.
The connection was these are the drivers with the shortest F1 careers who started more than one race. As far as I can see Lagorce and Rahal are the only drivers who started just two races, one week apart from each other.
Over to you for a new question! (Or I’ll set another if you prefer?)11th December 2018, 14:27 at 2:27 pm #383089
OK I’m taking it upon myself to set a new question. What is the sequence and what comes next:
Riccardo Patrese: Silverstone
Nelson Piquet: Monza
Andrea de Cesaris: Circuit Gilles Villeneuve

I have two theory’s… one is to do with being classified but not finishing the race (I thought it was scoring points without finishing the race… though Patrese doesn’t seem to fit here). The other is around the Brabham team, which they all share. Struggling to tie in the track.
I’ll continue digging!16th December 2018, 19:23 at 7:23 pm #383161
No one’s got it yet so here’s a clue:
It’s about longevity.17th December 2018, 11:20 at 11:20 am #383195GeeMacParticipant
Michael Schumacher: Catalunya
It was the race they celebrated their 200th F1 start.17th December 2018, 15:32 at 3:32 pm #38319817th December 2018, 16:04 at 4:04 pm #383208Alianora La CantaParticipant
Rubens Barrichello: Interlagos
I think it’s holders of the most races ever started, and the track at which they took the record.17th December 2018, 16:51 at 4:51 pm #383210
