    I’m trying really hard here. Whitehead: 1, Scheckter: 18, and Fittipaldi: 35 are the number of races started (not participated in) by F1 drivers who had an F1 driver brother who was more successful than them. There have been eight other F1 drivers in the same situation. Their number of race starts are:

    Brambilla Ernesto 0
    Winkelhock Joachim 0
    Villeneuve Jacques 0
    Stewart Jimmy 1
    RodrĂ­guez Ricardo 5
    Rathmann Dick 5
    Fabi Corrado 12
    Schumacher Ralph 180

    None of those numbers seems to fit the series in any way. The best I’ve got is that each of the three drivers in the series was born in a different continent, but that doesn’t seem very helpful. So I think I’m giving up.

    I’m not really sure, but my educated guess would be Schumacher 180.

    The years are: Hamilton 2016, Massa 2008, Senna 1989, Mansell 1987. So they are in reverse chronological order. But still some drivers would be missing, so there must be something else that I can’t see :/

    I don’t have the answer, but that’s the most races each of them won in a season in which they didn’t win the WDC. The problem is that there are several other drivers with at least 6 wins in a season in which they didn’t win the WDC, including Schumacher, Raikkonnen and Prost.

    I see here the start of a huge controversy about the worst driver on the grid. This season Ericsson and Haryanto are the men to beat. They have a Senna-Prost like duel for Less Valuable Driver and, just like the two legends, they are giving no quarter to each other. Ericsson is our Senna, his driving style is sumptuous, grandiose. He crashes where no man could crash and spins where no man could spin. Haryanto is our Prost, of course. He might not have Ericsson’s talent to fail where everybody else has succeeded, but he certainly makes up for that with his consistent lack of pace and his ability to finish race after race as the last classified driver. So which one impresses you most? Haryanto and his relentless thickness or Ericsson and his conspicuous blundering? Have your say.
