Great Drivers completeing the Quad

A year or two ago F1 magazine ran a small chart that listed out the active drivers that had won the "Big 4" races....Monaco, Silverstone, Monza, and Spa. This got me thinking about who had actually done it in the past...so I calculated out the following....very interesting...

Fangio completed this with the '1957 Monaco win.

Farina completed this with the 1953 Spa win

Coulthard completed this with the 2002 Monaco win

Hamilton completed this with his 2012 Monza win...needs another Monaco win to complete his 2nd QUAD

Prost completed 2 QUADS
Won Silverstone in 1993 to win his first Quad
Won Monza in 1995 to win his second Quad

Schumacher completed the Quad 3 times...coming up 2 Silverstone wins short of a 5 Quads

Senna completed his Quad with a 1993 Monaco win...a Silverstone win short of his 2nd Quad.

Vettel completed his Quad with wins at Monza and Spa in 2013

Other notables:
Alonso needs a Spa win to complete the Quad
Raikkonen needs a Monza win

Ascari needed a Monaco win
Jack Brabham needed a Monza win
Tony Brooks needed a Monaco win
Jim Clark needed Monaco
Mika Hakkenen needed Monza
Damon Hill needed Monaco
Juan Montoya needed Spa
Jackie Stewart needed 2 Spa wins to get 2 Quads


Really wasn't expecting to see Coulthard and Montoya on this list of greats.

Bit unfair on those drivers that raced between 1971-82. No Spa race then

Although no one really from that era is in the nearlys? Although they were also hampered by Silverstone and Brands alternating. Hence no Lauda, despite his three British GP wins!

Good lists though. DC goes on about how he won the big ones and that makes him all happy inside.

I know...Lauda would have had it if not for Brands and Zolder.

Mansell needed Monaco. He never won there - despite coming close on a couple of occasions(1984 in the wet and spinning off, 1987 - his engine blowing up on him and the infamous 1992 with him pitting for a slipping loose wheel and then riding the back of Senna's car for the last couple of laps).

He won Spa in 1986, Monza in 1991, Silverstone in 1987, 1991 and 1992. So just Monaco missing from there.

P.S. - Button needs Silverstone and Monza - although unlikely at the moment with his current situation.

Hamilton's win at Monaco, gives him his second "Quad"

Can you tell us/me who or why these four particular races have been designated as the 'Big Four'? I cannot recall ever hearing of the 'Quad' before, and wonder just when this was regarded as important. None of the circuits mentioned have held a Grand Prix every year since 1950, although Monza has only missed out once, in 1980 when the Italian GP was run at Imola.
It seems a somewhat illogical choice of circuits to give importance to.

Puzzled of Luton.

And to add to your puzzlement, Bob, it is pointless trying to compare what Fangio achieved at these circuits as opposed to any over the others, let alone Hamilton. Apart from Monaco and possibly Spa, the other two tracks bear little resemblance to the circuits of 40 or 50 years ago; I doubt that Fangio, or a number of others from the list would even recognise the tracks as they are now. Even Monaco has changed considerably, with even the tunnel being rebuilt in 1973.
