Was that not just because Walter Brun who owned the Gp C and F1 teams signed him from his GP C team as a driver he already had a good relationship ship with?

A couple for Jordan fans

5 drivers drove for them in 1991 and the final GP in Australia was the one and only GP that season that all competed in the same event. As well as the two who were driving for them, Zanardi and de Cesaris, you also had Schumi in the Benetton, Moreno in the Minardi and Gachot in the Lola

And I remember being told at the time the top 6 in the 1999 Australian GP had all driven for Jordan, including DLR in 6th who was a test driver for them

I fear you fall into a common statistical fallacy! Look at the stats for worlds champions http://www.statsf1.com/en/statistiqu...mpion/age.aspx Of 68 champions, Damon is the only one who was 36 years old, but six were 34 years old, 35 of them (over half) were in their 30s. That decade of life is usually - excluding some prodigies like Hamilton and Vettel -when the talent and experience come together and the driver excels. Nothing spooky.

I think S griffin was referring to the number of years between father and son's first world championships. 1996 - 1962 and 2016 - 1982.

Damon was around when his Dad won the first. Nico wasn't when his did.

Heinz-Harald Frentzen goes to Prost midway through 2001 and then they go bust in the off season, so he joins Arrows, who go bust mid season. He then went to Sauber and thankfully they survived!

Still at least it's not as bad as Andrea Montermini. Replaced the late Ratzenberger at Simtek in 1994, where he gets injured in his meeting and Simtek go bust in the middle of 1995, by which time Montermini had joined Pacific, who pulled at the end of the season. So he joins Forti for 1996 and they go bust mid season, then becomes test driver for Lola in 1997, who go bust after the first race! No wonder he wasn't hired in F1 again after that!

First time when Toyota decals were in an F1 car was when...
Eliseo Salazar was sponsored by them in his 1981 Ensign campaign.

Mention of British champions earlier, well prior to 2009 English drivers only won the title in even years (58, 62, 64, 68, 76, 86, 92, 96, 08) and Scottish drivers in odd ones (63, 65, 69, 71, 73). Only when Button won in 09 did that end!

Well this is subtle but.... so evident!

The first ever Monaco GP winner, was the respectable British-French driver and hero William Grover, nicknamed "Williams".
And nowadays Williams F1 team is based in the town of Grove.

Both Gilles and Jacques Villeneuve raced knowing they will be disqualified, and did it anyways.
Gilles done it in Long Beach 1982, and finished 3rd.
Jacques done it in Japan 1997, and finished 4th.

Tragic how both American champions Phil Hill and Mario Andretti won the title.

Both won the title at Monza after their team mate and only challenger for the title was killed in an accident (von Trips and Peterson respectively)

In 1976, Sir Frank Williams got the investment by a Canadian millionaire, Walter Wolf.
In 2017, Williams got the investment by another Canadian millionaire, Lawrence Stroll.
Hope the current investment could have differences from the first one.

Not sure about that, since Wolf pulled his finances to build his own race team.

When SFW saw his team, in the hands of Wolf, was capable to winning races with Scheckter, he was very aware about what to do. The WR1 is, truly, a Williams car, developed by Frank Williams Racing Cars the previous year 1976, and also derived from the 1975 Hesketh 308 (they were both developed by Harvey Postlethwaite, no more no less). Fact is, that Wolf owned Williams team by the time, then sir Frank couldn't have the credit then.

Yes, but it doesn't change the point.

Exactly. It’s difficult to see much long-term good coming from the situation. Hold and delay and wait for a new F1 model is the best hope. And hope is pretty much all it can be.
