Lando now holds a very special F1 record at McLaren
« on: July 21, 2021, 11:11:38 AM »
His run of 10 points scoring races since start of season beats even Hamilton & Senna.

Lando also set a new record for consecutive points finishes as a McLaren driver, with his staggering streak of 15 races in the top-10 to take away Alonso's crown.  Wow, Wow & Wow!  :swoon:

It would definitely be fun to see them go up against each other in top flight cars. I hope it works out that way.

Has f1 ever had a Brit vs Brit title fight?
(Or two drivers from the same country?)

2010 had Hamilton and Button both in the running, but it wasn't a direct fight with a lot of drivers in the mix until they very end of the season.

There is the famous tussle for the 1958 championship Jeri, Stirling Moss was fighting with Mike Hawthorn for the title that year. Interestingly Peter Collins another Brit was a distant 3rd in the championship.

Moss could have won it if he hadn't sportingly intervened, after winning, at the Portuguese GP to stop Hawthorn being given a penalty. The 2nd place Hawthorn kept meant at season end he beat Stirling to the title by 1 point. - Now that's what adds to the legend for Stirling as being the best F1 driver never to win a WDC, amongst other exploits of course.

1)  Is there anyone on the grid right now who would have that level of sportsmanship?  Kimi?  Ricciardo?  I don't think they'd go out of their way to right a wrong, but would probably tell stewards that fair is fair if officially asked.

2)  The '58 Portuguese GP seems pretty interesting.  Shelby raced. There was a woman driver.  There was a 'fastest lap' point.
