No grand prix in 1930?[edit]

Wasn't there a grand prix in 1930? I read here in a scientific article about magnesium in automotive applications: Maserati used for their winning racing cars (in the "Monza grand prix" 1930) a great number of magnesium parts such as (...). SietskeEN 11:11, 6 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I've searched for it a little bit more. The above seems to be confirmed by the article September 7th 1930: Maserati’s day of glory on maseraticorse.com.
I'm sure that the writers of this article have more sense for this grand prix than I do (I'm really not into racing), so I'm wondering what the reason is that it is not included here. Regards, SietskeEN 11:27, 6 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Team Lotus[edit]

Should Lotus (Team Lotus) be bold in the multi-winners table? The Lotus Racing is a different team?--The Three Headed Knight (talk) 13:47, 7 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]


In the information box, it is mentioned for:

1) Race information:

- Most wins constructor = I think it is Scuderia Ferrari and not Ferrari

2) Last race (2013):

- Second team = I think it is Scuderia Ferrari and not Ferrari

Thank you for your opinions. Trackteur (talk) 14:41, 22 March 2014 (UTC)[reply]

In Formula One all the Grand Prix cars were built by Scuderia Ferrari. Any link in a Formula One article should point towards the racing team Scuderia Ferrari. It is however the formalised practice in Formula One to refer to Scuderia Ferrari by the shortened name, Ferrari. So links should say Ferrari, but link to Scuderia Ferrari is practically all cases unless specifically refering to the road car manufacturer, which you would for example when refering to some older race engines.
A secondary reason for this is accuracy of link. Scuderia Ferrari contains the details of Ferrari as a motor racing team, while Ferrari article has a relatively small component of motor racing.
So the link should look like [Scuderia Ferrari|Ferrari]. --Falcadore (talk) 02:15, 23 March 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Also note that even though the parameter is called "Second_team", the consensus of the Formula One WikiProject is to populate these fields with the (short) constructor name, therefore Ferrari, rather than Scuderia Ferrari in this case. Consider that in Australian Grand Prix, "Winning_team" is populated with Mercedes, not Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team.

Thank you for your answers, it is now clear to me (I do not know the conventions accepted by consensus). Good day to you. Trackteur (talk) 07:37, 23 March 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Alex Filippovski[edit]

Hi, I removed Alex Filippovski from the multiple winners table. Apparently he won it in 2015 and 2016 ! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:05, 7 September 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Good work. --Falcadore (talk) 22:00, 7 September 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Alpha Tauri / Torro Rosso Multiple Time Winners[edit]

Given that Alpha Tauri and Torro Rosso are essentially the same team (same ownership, home base and staff after rebrand) should they not be included as multiple time winners. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tommy773 (talkcontribs) 11:27, 27 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

No, because they aren't the same constructor. Therefore, Toro Rosso have one win, and AlphaTauri have one win. SSSB (talk) 11:47, 27 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
