All five of these F1 champions achieved something in their championship year that made them unique amongst all the other champions since 1950.

What was the achievement that differed them from every other champion?
At a guess - they won their first Formula One Championship Race and their first Formula One WDC in the same season?

Correct crmalcom.

I was surprised that Brabham and G Hill had no wins and very few real podiums before their championship year. Same with Hulme and Rosberg. Hulme never had a full season before 1996 and Rosberg had only had second level cars scratching around the back half of GP grids.
Granted he had the Silverstone non championship race in the wet to demonstrate his skill, but he only got the drive because Carlos went home prior to the Falklands war.
Fortune smiled upon him.

Yes - definitely a bit of a surprise. Particularly (IMO) Hulme when you look at his 1966 season.



So - on to the next question.

Of the countries that hosted GPs in 2022 - the following countries are special places for drivers, but the others are not. Why?

Australia, Italy, USA, Spain, Canada, Britain, Austria, France, Hungary, Belgium, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Abu Dhabi.

The title has been decided in these countries?

That's a good guess. Looks like it could be right. I'm going to go out on a limb and say they're all places drivers have made debuts.

Yes - this is the correct answer.

Born Racer - that might be true, but would not fit the question because it would also make Bahrain special.

The countries listed are special to [certain] drivers because they are the countries in which they clinched their titles.

Can you name any other countries that have decided the title that weren't on the calendar the season just gone?

Thanks, I will ask a question:

'some of the younger guys were dangerous, sometimes, but I was always, always, suspicious of {driver's name}'

Who was Emerson Fittipaldi talking about with this quote?

Yes, Clay Regazzoni is the correct answer, and the missing word at the end of the phrase was 'Clay'. Fittipaldi said it about Regazzoni forcing him onto the grass at Watkins Glen in 1974, when they were level on points and battling for the championship. So back to S griffin for the next question.

He may have said something similar about Schumacher as well, but this particular quote is about Regazzoni.

I'll guess Gabriele Tarquini in '95. He also competed in DTM and ITCC in '95. I can't recall anyone since.

(Incidentally, Coulthard was also behind the wheel of a BTCC car and F1 car that year - but didn't 'compete' in BTCC).
