Second batch of answers, and it's the Usual Suspects (Joc? and gti138) at the front.

gti138 3
Joc? 3
Necx0 2
Hazardous 2
AnGuRuSO 1
Devon 1
Gman333-x-Ferrari 1

So far we know that this car:

was Italian,
did not use slick tires,
was normally-aspirated,
had no cigarette advertising,
was driven by a World Champion,
did not use an engine mounted behind the driver,
was not fitted with wings,
and won more than two races.

Necx0 comes out of nowhere to win this round!



It's the Maserati 250F, the car that took Juan Manuel Fangio to his final World Championship, and to what people would describe as his greatest ever victory, with one of the drives of the century, at the 1957 German Grand Prix.

Scoreboard for the round:

Necx0 9
gti138 3
Joc? 3
Hazardous 2
AnGuRuSO 1
Devon 1
Gman333-x-Ferrari 1

I'll post the updated leaderboard a bit later. Time for an eggtastic breakfast now.

HAHAHAH I feel like James May!! I HAVE FINALLY WON SOMETHING ON FINAL GEAR!!!!!!

Well once I established front engined it had to be pre-1959. Given that it was Italian and world champion made me think Fangio. Lucky timing :)

You could also have thought Farina, Ascari, Hawthorn. :lol:

But yeah, it was Il Maestro's last F1 car.

gti138 gets 2nd place on a countback, being the first to ask a question answered with 'Yes' between the 2nd place people. On the same countback, Devon gets 5th place in this round and AnGuRuSO 6th.

And the leaderboard after three rounds is extremely tight at the front, with gti138 leading Joc? by one point, and mclarensmps and Necx0 in a close fight for third place.

1. gti138 (4-6-6-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x) - 16 pts
2. Joc? (2-9-4-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x)- 15 pts
3. mclarensmps (9-1-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x) - 10 pts
4. Necx0 (x-x-9-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x) - 9 pts

Sorry Gman, points updated. And no, for the previous round you don't get any points: the countback puts you 7th.

So far, the points are like this:

Hazardous 2
Devon 1
Necx0 1

And so far we know that this car:

had wings,
was not made by any mainstream car maker,
and was never driven by a World Champion driver.
