What have Jochen Mass and Eddie Cheever in common. It has to do with Ron Dennis.
Racing together in Project Four? In F2, perhaps, seeing as they were never teammates in F1 afaik.
A bit more specific? Lots of drivers drove for Project Four, but only Mass and Cheever share this distinction.
I knew it was a bit too easy. :wink:

I've absolutely no idea.

Something to do with Ferrari engines or was that the Monza bear only?

Well, this isn't going forward in a meaningful way, and John had it basically solved already: yes, Jochen and Eddie ran together as Project Four team mates, more specifically they were the first ever drivers for the team in 1976, and in that capacity they both failed to qualify by a fair margin, more than ten seconds adrift of pole time! It was a most inauspicious debut for perhaps the most successful racing team of all times.

Sorry for the delay, now for John's question?

"Backmarkers" Prost, Jaguar and Minardi each led one F1 race each in their entire lifespan. Can you name which races/drivers they were?

I know only one, Prost, Jarno Trulli lead at the 1997 Austrian Grand Prix, was in the top 2 or 3 when his engine failed later in the race.

Ok, that is the first one correct!

So who led for Minardi and who led for Jaguar and when?

Minardi would have to be Pierluigi Martini. I guess it would be at Portugal.

Jaguar actually led for 2 laps at the 2003 USGP when it rained and the leaders pitted for wet tyres, with Webber at the wheel. He then crashed or had a spin on the next lap.

Perfect. If you have a question, please post, if not I have some more trivia style questions.

I’ll get this thread going again.

What bizarre reason was Joe Ruttman parked for in the final NASCAR cup series race at Rockingham to date in 2004?

He was parked after a few laps, or was it after 1 lap, for not having a pit crew.
