vettel becoming the youngest WDC made me think , what is the smallest number of grand prix drives after which someone has won this championship
jimmy clark , easily the most dominant F1 driver ever percentage wise , finally got a car that didn't break down and won the WDC in his 3rd season after 33 races [ at seasons end ...he had won before that though if I remember correctly ]
I have tried googling for anyone who won in less races ...does anyone know if there is somebody ?
incidentally clark was older than vettel is now before he ever sat in a F1 car
to the optimist a glass is half full ; to the pessimist a glass is half empty ; to the F1 engineer the glass is twice as big as it needs to be
