LC2guy should be qualifying in the top 5 on the gridLC2guy should be qualifying in the top 5 on the grid
I never believed in Coincidences.....

Posted on another forum by OXO;

Hamilton qualified on pole with a time of 1:27.31

He won the race with a time of 1h 27m 31s

His lead in the championship is 1+27+31 points


I thought it was made up, but checked, and it's true !!! Well spotted OXO, whoever you are ..

That's a fun little coincidence.

Good job we have a base 60 time system.

OMG. Last year after the Japanese Grand Prix (note this is the same GP as in the opening post ).

Nico Rosberg was on pole 1m30.65 (he also drove a Mercedes ).
The same (!) driver won with a race time of 1h26:43 (and I have 43 in my username and I rounded this to two decimal places as I did with the first fact ))
The same (!) driver was leading the championship by 1+26+43-33 and 1+30+65-63 (this is the third fact and this is the third post in this thread ).

Riddled with coincidences.

Can I also be the first to mention Jerez 1997.

It's a great coincidence that involves dropping the third digit after the decimal point, which is what we measure F1 times in. It's not a coincidence if you have to manipulate it into one.
