To celebrate Spain's World Cup win, constructed in Barcelona, it is time to consider the Circuit de Catalunya's first F1 race. Maybe.

The Clip the Apex Database would suggest that the top 10 were these chancers:

6. Michael Schumacher only raced six times in 1991, but scored as many points as the man he originally replaced, Bertrand Gachot, with 4 for Benetton in the last 5. How many did the man he swapped places with between the Belgian and Italian Grands Prix, Roberto Moreno, score all season?

10. Martin Brundle has been commentating on F1 since 1997. Michael Schumacher has won the most races since he took up the mic, with 69. How many other drivers must you have in this time period to exceed this total?

4. With Alonso's 22, Hakkinen's 20 and Raikkonen's 18 you get 69, so you must then add either Hamilton (13), Coulthard (12), Massa (11) or Barrichello (11) to make 69.
