Austrian GP 1976:
- as of 2020 the last World Championship race that Ferrari did not enter
- the last time an American-licensed constructor won a F1 race
- last occasion to date that a female driver would finish

Remember hUirEYExbN said it hadn't happened since, or before. So a 'last time' thing wont count, it needs to be an 'only time' thing.

Something truly unique about the season - not a race, or driver, or team?

Never happened before or since?

Hmmm says I!

Mario Andretti's victory in Japan was his second in Formula One, coming five years, seven months and 18 days after his maiden win at the 1971 South African Grand Prix. As of 2020, this is the longest period between a first and second victory of a driver in the series. Yes, I copied this from Wikipedia.

So in other words, the the unique event is longest wait between a driver's first and second victories in history. A feat that cannot be repeated for some time yet since we've had very few first time one time only winners lately. Perez and Gasly come to min, and they would need to go winless for another five years to break this record.

This is a good one, and nicely justified. It isn't what I'm thinking though.

Mine is very of the moment, it has no build up period, lets say. It happened at and was isolated to the event in question. However, it could have happened at any other event at any time in the history of the sport.

The only time a 6 wheeled F1 car has won a race was in 1976 at the Swedish GP. Jody Scheckter in the Tyrrell P34.
matt21 already guessed that.
Ah, missed that. :oops:
Wasn't 1976 the first season with a six wheeled car?

Well, I tried.

Is the answer like Jack Sparrow's island in Pirates of the Caribbean? It cannot be found except by those who already know what it is?

Not at all, it is public knowledge and has been since it happened.

Yes (unless you go vary far back), but my answer only relates to a single event. Something I didn't initially state in my increasingly annoying question.

I think it's safe to say we don't know.

Someone will figure it out. Once they do they will be disappointed, because it really is not at all interesting. Someone is bound to say that it doesn't qualify.

To recap:
The answer is something that is unique in F1 throughout its whole history.
It occurred in 1976 during a single event.
It could have occurred at any other event in any other season. There is nothing special about 1976 or the event in question that led to this.
It can (and probably will) happen in future, but not for some years lets say.

Lets see what happens.

Was it that the driver champion was Jack Brabham who also was also the owner of the constructor champions 'Brabham - Repco'
Yes he was.

Is that a reply to a 13 year old post, by a user who has not been active for 4 years :P

I still do not have a clue.
You maybe should give us a hint, otherwise this chain will be stuck again.

If it was in a particular race in 1976... which race? That will narrow down the guesses.
