I don't really understand the question but I'm sure it'll make sense when someone puts the answer up

Not sure this is what you are looking for but the Australian Grand Prix of 1995 was the last race of that year and the first race of 1996. So two consecutive races as the Australian Grand Prix. Both races were won by Damon Hill.

It was just a change in the schedule from the last race of the season to the first in consecutive years.

Well done though technically, if we want to be pedantic, one could argue it wasn't consecutive rounds of the championship rather consecutive races covering 2 championships. Then again I might be just being a prick about it.

My first thought was the 1984 F1 season when there was back to back races in the U.S but it turns out Piquet won Detroit while Rosberg won Dallas.

Not at all, you are right, these are two different years

1984 was also my first guess but in addition to having different winners, they were (and still are) badged as the "Detroit Grand Prix" and the "Dallas Grand Prix". Neither was or is now called "The US Grand Prix".

Maybe, we need wire2004 to confirm!

I've just thought one up - someone will point it out if I missed something:

What did the 2018 cohort of F1 drivers manage that has never been achieved before?

First year in the history of the sport where the same drivers that started the season, finished the season.

I was surprised myself when Martin Brundle mentioned this.

Not just that they finished the season, they competed at every race.

I didn't hear him say it - so I just went back through every season - I thought I'd only be going back 5 or 6 years!

Was also the first season where every driver on the grid scored points during the season. All the way down to 1 point scored by Sergei Sirotkin.

In previous years there were always drivers who scored no points during the season.
