Senna, 1988.

He won the first GP after I was born too, 2 days after.

Senna's first in 1988. It's sad that I know this, but he also won the first race I was alive as well (Canada).

To my fellow PF1'ers that don't know the champion of their birth year, get practicing ;)

Wow this thread makes me feel old.. I know there are plenty of folks older than me, but it sure seems like its mostly younger folk on the interwebz today. Better go take my Metamucil and nurse my hip. Jones 1980 btw

Rosberg... the only champ with one victory in his championship year? Nope, apparently Mike Hawthorn did the same.

Alain Prost. 1989. He also won the pole position in the French Grand Prix the day I was born, and won the race the next day.
I remember watching it, great race. :D :-P

Surely Fangio deserves better than to be called "someone else"?

1969 Jackie Stewart

EDIT: Why isn't Jackie in the poll list? He won it more times than several of those who are in it.
