I rate the Big Four as any four Tilkedromes.

I could tell I was getting old, when the BTCC driver I have an autograph from is not one of the ones who are older than me and the driver was Aiden Moffat

Good point Mike. Totally true. If F1 went back to Imola permanently, it would never be the same as after 1994.

True about those tracks, but in all fairness:

[The first Japanese Grand Prix was run as a non-championship Formula 1 race at the Suzuka Circuit 80 kilometres (50 mi) south west of Nagoya in May 1963. This marked the beginning of motor racing in earnest in Japan. For the next 11 years, however; the non-championship Grand Prix was run at the Fuji Speedway, 40 miles (64 km) west of Yokohama and 66 miles (106 km) west of the Japanese capital of Tokyo. The circuit had a banked corner called Daiichi and was the scene of many fatal accidents. It was then run as a number of disciplines of motorsports, particularly Formula 2, sports cars and Can-Am-type sprint racing.
Formula One

Fuji Speedway

The first Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix, in 1976, was held at the very fast 2.7 mile Fuji Speedway, minus the banking. The race was to become famous for the title decider between James Hunt and Niki Lauda as it was held during monsoon conditions.]

True and true, but I was merely responding to a previous point that Le Mans was one of the Big Three.

Silverstone the same as it was before the big remake(in the 2010)? Nowdays, I'd say it's a bit too clinical and technical. It's lost a lot of flow from the high speed corners of old.

I'd say the long straight leading into a left right is just the same as it was 87-90

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.
So came across this file and updated it from last year...and Nico Rosberg completed his Quad with his two wins in Monza and Spa last year.

Sorry but for me, completing a quad is jumping over a 4 jump series on a motocross bike!! IN one jump!

Prost really didn't win Monza in 1995.

I corrected this in another post where it was 1985.

I must confess that I've never come across this idea of the "Quad" before, and it seems a bit random. What about Suzuka, for example? Very challenging, very prestigious.

I guess it's to do with 'tradition' the oldest races etc.

Maybe we should have a modern equivalent: multiple winners of the blandest races!

And I believe that is what they were implying in the article...

Grand Prix History 101

Monza - 66 Grand Prix
Monaco - 63 Grand Prix
Silverstone - 50 Grand Prix
Spa - 49 Grand Prix
Circuit Gilles Villeneuve - 37 Grand Prix
Interlagos - 34 Grand Prix
Hockenheim - 31 Grand Prix

Argue about configuration and better tracks (Suzuka), but the general racing fan looks at these 4 as the "Upper Class" or "Most Prestigious"

Hamilton could make it a third Quad this year. He needs Monaco and Spa.
