Last post from previous page:

Felipe Massa has finished in the points at 50% of the Brazilian GPs following his retirement and has cried at 100% of them.

Since Lewis Hamilton became a 4-time world champion, both Felipe Massa and Rubens Barrichello have appeared on the podium more times than Lewis.

Not a particularly strong fact - even Minardi have stood on the podium more than Nico Hulkenburg.

Despite being the slowest car on the grid by miles, both Saubers out qualified Lewis Hamilton at the Brazilian GP.

The first turbocharged winner of an F1 race was a French driver in a French car.

The first winner of the new turbocharged era of F1 was a German driver in a German car.

But Jabouille clinched it at home in France, at a time where there were no other turbo cars.
Also Jabouille was considered a good testing driver but a weak racing driver. I guess he disproved his critics there and then.
