Which driver was the best and the craziest overtaker during the first 15 laps Austrian GP, A1-Ring 2001? 8-)

What are the races, just out of interest?
Rising number one of Formula 1, Juan - Juan, one wonders should Juan only win one Formula 1 one year, would Juan have won that one in round one, Juan??

Jos Verstappen.

He would have won but he stopped to hit someone at the trackside karting track. :hehe:

Were those all retirements though? I'm wondering if DD was talking about cases where they still took the chequered flag.

Anyway, since andrew hasn't taken his turn, I'm going to jump right in and steal a go, because I noticed something before that could make for a fun, but easy question!

If Pastor Maldonado fails to score another point, but competes in every remaining race, he will finish the season outside the top ten having won a race. Before Pastor, how many other drivers have competed in every race of a season, won one and finished outside of the top ten? Who were they, where was their win and which year did they do it in? For the purposes of this question, you should ignore the Indy 500 in the seasons where it was considered part of the F1 championship.
