A Grand Chelem or Grand Slam is scored in motor racing if a driver scores pole position in qualifying, the fastest lap in the race and then winning while leading every lap of the race in the same weekend. This significant feat is equivalent to a perfect game in baseball, or a 300-game in ten-pin bowling.
To date, only 24 drivers have secured a Grand Chelem. There have only been 57 in total.
Juan Manuel Fangio took the first Grand Chelem in a Formula One World Championship race at the 1950 Monaco Grand Prix. It was only the second World Championship race. Jim Clark obtained the most Grand Chelems, with eight, amazingly all achieved in a 32-race period which spanned just over three years. The most recent was at the 2016 European Grand Prix, where Nico Rosberg achieved the feat.
Only three drivers achieved a Grand Chelem at consecutive races: Alberto Ascari (1952 German Grand Prix and 1952 Dutch Grand Prix), Jim Clark (1963 Dutch Grand Prix and 1963 French Grand Prix) and Sebastian Vettel (2013 Singapore Grand Prix and 2013 Korean Grand Prix).
