10. Michael Schumacher's 23rd win was also at Monaco, in 1997. Who was the highest finisher who has never been one of Schumi's team-mates.

If you said "Michael Schumacher", you are of course correct and recieve the pedants' award :1st:

Try again assuming we're discounting Schumacher if you want the point!

Olivier Panis, in 4th, with Barrichello and Irvine in P2 and P3
4 but you were having a laugh with that last question........

How can Michael Schumacher be a team mate of Michael Schumacher.?


Oh I see you were taking the piss.....
4 for me.

As an aside--if you can find a photo of Clark crossing the finish line at Watkins, you will see that his rear suspension has suffered a partial collapse (not due to contact, either). Yet his lead had been such that he could circulate at greatly reduced pace and still win. Such was the greatness of the man.
