Grand Slam in F1 is specifically winning by leading a race from pole and getting fastest lap. Bottas didn't get it because Lewis led during pit stops

Thought it was Pole, Win and Fastest lap tbh

EDIT: As those are the only stats that are taken long term

A grand slam in rugby union was historically when one of five nations beat all the other (that would be four) nations. Now that Italy has joined the definition had to change to five, when it used to be four.

Four.

Apparently Grand Slam in Bridge (where the term apparently originates) means winning all thirteen tricks.

Thirteen.

What is this boring crap we're watching? Check if Antiques Roadshow is on



I googled. Grand slam does indeed originate from Bridge, itís all 13 tricks and was first recorded in July 1800 in a (British) pamphlet entitled "Rules for the Game of Cards called Boston" which was a game invented by French officers stationed in America, and was brought to England by Russians.

A trick is four cards though. So you get all the fours.

I always assumed "grand slam" meant less one specific number and more "all elements of competition".

Can't wait for next season, what with the halo and ESPN's half rear end coverage.

And a grand slam in F1 is pole, victory, fastest lap, whilst leading every lap jfc.
