Catch Me If You Can

We’ve seen it twice before in Formula 1. One driver winning four world titles in a row, that is: Juan Manuel Fangio did it between 1954 and 1957, then a bloke called Schumacher did it between 2000 and 2003. Michael then went and did it for a fifth successive time in 2004. Can his compatriot and successor Sebastian Vettel do it this year?

Q: Unlike Schumacher and Vettel, Fangio did not take those consecutive titles in one make of car. Can you name the marques in which the great Argentine won the title from 1954-57?


The Australian Grand Prix Corporation expresses its sadness following the passing of Tony Gaze AOM, DFC and BARS, 1920-2013.

“He was nearly the perfect hero.” The words are those of Australian V8 Supercar driver Will Davison, talking about his step-grandfather Tony Gaze, who has died at the age of 93.

The Australia we know and cherish today was built on a pioneering spirit and individual acts of bravery. Tony Gaze epitomised those qualities in a life whose early years were the stuff of adventure writing.
