Coincidences in F1

Reading about how both Ascari Sr and Jr's death's were very spookily similar, in that both died at 36, only four days apart, on the 26th of a month, on a left hander, four days after a lucky escape, and leaving behind a wife and two nippers. As well as that Ascari and the other driver to crash into the Monaco harbour, Paul Hawkins, like Ascari also died in a sportscar accident on the 26th of May.

So I decided to start another thread, as there's plenty more interesting coincidences out there in F1

I'll start with one, the only two father and son champions.

Graham Hill won his first (of two) titles in 1962, then 34 seasons on his son Damon won the title, coming just after being runner up twice to the driver who was reckoned to be the best of the time (Schumacher)

Keke Rosberg won his first (and only) title then 34 seasons on his son Nico won the title, coming just after being runner up twice to driver who was reckoned to be the best of the time (Hamilton)

Yes and Hill was on course to beat them all, but got baulked by a Minardi at the last corner. Speaking of which, a coincidence that has been unnoticed by some is that neither Schumi or JV shared a podium all season...

Jim Clark died on April 7, 1968.
Michael Schumacher born on January 3, 1969.
Nine months of difference... And not long in place from one another.

All we need to do now is find out who was born around February 1995 somewhere in Italy.

Stewart became Jaguar who then became Red Bull Racing. And what statistic connects those three teams? They all got their first podium at Monaco. Stewart in 97 with Barrichello, Jaguar in 01 with Irvine and RBR in 06 with DC

If I'm correct, I think the 2008 and 2009 drivers championships were won by a British driver, both in a car numbered 22, both powered by a Mercedes engine, and both championships were won at the Brazilian GP, by both drivers finishing in 5th position. It was the first drivers championship for both drivers.

EuroBrun = Euroracing (Alfa Romeo) + Brun (Group C team)
Oscar Larrauri was the happy link between the two.

i still find that one surprising every time i hear it.

2009 Singapore GP.

at the first race back in Singapore after crashgate, Grosjean crashes his Renault during practice in the same spot as Piquet Jr did the year before!

I have 2 fairly tenuous offerings!

Gilles and Ayrton's deaths were in the 1st week of May albeit 12 years apart.

Ferrari got Bridgestone to protest Michelin at Monza in 2003 at a crucial point of what was an incredibly open and closely fought season.

Schumacher ends up champion....

Since the 2008, the drivers championship has been decided at the final round of the championship, every other year.

So if patterns are to be followed, the championship will be decided at the final round of this year!

And after Schumacher deliberately parked his Ferrari at Rascasse in 06, the next season Kimi broke his Ferrari suspension on the barriers at the swimming pool, he ends up going straight on at Rascasse! And what's more he held up team mate Massa as he was reversing back on the track!
