In top-line Grand Prix racing as a whole, this even surpasses Felice Nazzaro's record of 15 years and a smaller number of days (Wikipedia says 2 weeks on the dot) between the 1907 and 1922 French Grands Prix, although that's just going off Grandes Épreuves... and my own memory.
EDIT: Just remembered Louis Chiron! 1928 Italian Grand Prix and 1949 French Grand Prix!
Yeah, it has to be Chiron when talking about Grands Prix proper.
Though I reckon the record-holder might still be someone else if we consider all races contested with top-line equipment. I know Christian Werner won 1924 Targa Florio in his old days, but am not sure how far early in the 1900's should we go for his first win? How about Louis Wagner or Trintignant?
