Hi downunder,

The oldest driver to ever win a Formula 1 race was Luigi Fagioli at the age of 53 years, 0 months and 22 days.
He won the French Grand Prix in 1951 driving an Alfa Romeo

The rest of the top 5 oldest:
2 Giuseppe Farina at 46y 09m 03d - Germany 1953 (Ferrari)
3 Juan-Manuel Fangio at 46y 01m 11d - Germany 1957 (Maserati)
4 Piero Taruffi at 45y 07m 06d - Switzerland 1953 (Ferrari)
5 Sir Jack Brabham at 43y 11m 05d - South Africa 1970 (Brabham)

And the youngest driver to win a Formula 1 race is the current Spanish sensation Fernando Alonso winning the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2003 at the age of 22y 0m and 26 days (driving a Renault of course!)

Data according to Stats F1
