    There was also pink in the mirror on top of the hill at the same venue in 1971.

    ah right, that one!
    It looks like there is a slight majority vote for wrapping up this nonsense on sunday (US saturday probably) rather than immediately, so i'll start rolling out some more clues tonight

    2016?

    (Pardon me, I'm not used to such short time frames when talking about VLM. ;) So I just want to be clear. Greetz to the VLM and VLM Jr. Team. I love them. *kiss*)

    woahwoahwoah, i don't mean to suggest the track will be released this weekend.
    i had hoped to have it done by the end of the year, but i've put a big effort into one part of it which has pushed the schedule a bit. And there are a couple more areas that will need a big effort (maybe not quite as big), and then it should be nearly done. When is that? not soon enough for me :)

    i'll have a think about releasing it in a couple of beta versions though. That will take some of the pressure off

    As you see in my post, no need to feel any pressure. Take your time, make it good and we will be happy I'm sure.

    The amount of pressure will depend on which track it is ;)

    Bugatti as so many have guessed here? Zero pressure because we already have a superb version of that track. Some other locations will result in an endless stream of begging and pleading (that you are familiar with already on your previous work!) ;)

    Graham -> 3
    Foyt & Mclaren -> 2
    All except Surtees -> 1 (but Surtees was on the entry list of winner 1963) so the odd is Surtees I suppose

    And Foyt is the only one who won the same year 2 victories in triple crown

    lets ignore one and two crowns for this point :)
    So, this is another way in which Graham Hill is the odd one out of the group

    Only graham is important so? For the odd, is it correct? Surtees? :p Or the odd is Graham?

    Surtees is a part of a subset group of "odd one out" though.
    There is also another 100% odd one out

    So there an odd one out: Graham Hill, winner of the Triple Crown.
    And the drivers are split into two groups. Put your hand up if you know how they're split.
    And there is one other driver who is 100% different from the rest as well.

    Foyt never raced a real F1 race (except Indy 500 when the race was in F1 championship) (and he won the same year Indy 500 and LM24, it is only one who won 2 races of triple crown the same year)

    1st Group : Two Hill, Surtees, Hulme and Andretti
    2nd Group : Foyt, Mclaren, Ickx, Gurney, Amon

    World F1 champion or not?
