Another Maserati - 4CLT (quite the same car as prewar 4CL) - Villoresi winning the first British GP at Silverstone in 1948...
These prewar and immediate postwar race cars were really big.

Lance Stroll. I wonder if he picked the number 18 because it was his age maybe?

The 17th day is a wonderful day in the countdown.

The 17th day brings us to the number of my favourite non F1 driver of all time.

It is the number of the legendary, the laconic, the #1 Ford man in the history of Australian motor racing, the one, the only, Mr Dick Johnson.

Mr Canard,
This is 1973. You can't have number 17 for 2 different drivers. For the 1974 Shadow number 17, see upstairs...

Fixt. Pretty sure the website I got if from had that dated as 1974 even though the URL of the pic says 1973. My goof!!! :?

You should have looked closer... It was a "Where-is-Surtees-in-the-picture-?" kind of pic, with the same car at the same race (France GP 1968).

Back to today's number 15

Renault RS 10 - Dijon 1979 - The man who was faster than Villeneuve and Arnoux and won the race : Jean-Pierre Jabouille - One of the most underrated driver with one of the best, if not the best, ratio wins/finished races of F1 history.

Image
From https://maxf1.net


I started posting in this thread with a Chaparral exhibition. Here's the "beautiful one" : Chaparral 2F - 1967 (Here at Daytona - the Ferrari(s) following her on the banking at the start won the race)

Image
From http://trackthoughts.com

Image
From http://s3.amazonaws.com

Sorry, no John Surtees picture (yet ?)

And you get a bonus Chaparral (2D) behind the Ferrari 24. The Ferrari number 33 is the Belgian 412P that I posted at Day... 33.

Now the Surtees picture, though it's a bit of cheating : Surtees TS9 car F5000, without any John in it, and coming from a recent exhibition, when I wanted to post only photos from the time the cars raced.

I can't believe I missed the 2D!!! It is one of my favorite all-time cars. Got a chance to go to the Chaparral museum in Midland, Texas a few years ago, not even a dozen cars on display, but oh what cars!

Thank you Harpo for remembering the Jean-Pierre "Turbo Father" Jabouille, fantastic driver and engineer, who actually engineered the cars he was racing. One of the most luckless drivers of all times. Here on the picture on his way to his last victory, Austria 1980.

But number 15 will not be complete without posting the picture of Alain Prost. Here also on his way to last victory with Renault and number 15, Silverstone 1983, overtaking Arnoux in Ferrari.

Day 14 - It's Surtees Day (one of many as long as I'm concerned... but today just because of the number of pics)

Honda - Monza 1967 - Beating Brabham on the line.

Monza 1967 - I already said it, but I love those exhausts pipes...

Another Honda - another year, 1968

At the wheel of THE Ferrari - 1000 km Monza 1966 - He won the race with Mike Parkes

He was Emmo before it was cool: Emmerson Fittipaldi, in his Fittipldi F6A from 1979, which sadly never properly used the ground effect and good results were not coming his way.

Image

Source: formulatotal.worldpress.com

Also number 14: Clay Reggazoni, Ensign N180, on his last laps before terrible crash which ended his career at Long Beach 1980. He could have been third in that race, was it not for the accident. Third was the guy behind, the same Emmerson Fittipaldi from the picture above.

Talk about asking for it... "Black Cat" number 13

Image
From http://r.hswstatic.com


The reason why there were no number 13 on racing cars in races organized in France for tens of years (and for a long time only even numbers...).
Delage number 13 - GP San Sebastian 1925 - The driver was killed, as was the driver of the Delage number 13 at the next Targa Florio.

But France finally got used to number 13 on racing cars... Nowadays, it's a gas ! Le Mans 1987

And some even play with it - Vaillante Rebellion number 13 - Le Mans 2017

Image
From https://www.automotivpress.fr


The name Vaillante (and the logo the current Vaillante team uses) comes from the series of comic book "Michel Vaillant", who was driving Vaillante cars built by his father. Comic books that every boy from France and Belgium have read from the late '50s to the '70s. In one book from early sixties (Le 13 est au départ - "13 is on the starting grid") the villains were driving a car number 13 at Le Mans. (Here in German... I couldn't find anything interesting in the original French version).

Max is #33 and Pierre is #10. :?

My research says that Pastor Moldanado is the only driver to run the number since Divina Galica used it in 1976.

Yeah, it's technically Ricciardo's car (you can see a #3 on it), but the big '13' is the number I was going for.
