I just saw a documentary (on Dutch telly) about Dutch F1 driver Jan Lammers.

Doesn't look bad for a 58 y/o.

That documentary is in Dutch of course, but should you want to see it: it's online. I don't know how long it'll stay.

regards,
Hein

Thanks for that Pedro - there goes my joker.  Makes up nicely for a blank scorecard last year...

Not sure what to do with this story but ignoring it 'twould be criminal.
Speaking of criminal, NASCAR driver Kurt Busch says his ex is a trained assassin who has killed drug kingpins!
So it's a fringe celebrity and racing. Apologies for not having a proper location for this gem.

More a reminder than new information but...

 

Quite a few obitable and aged British F1 types continue to breathe, like:

 

Chris Irwin - few F1 drives and serious career ending accident in late sixties - may be one of the more obscure.

 

Vic Elford and Jackie Oliver are also around.

Jean-Pierre Beltoise, Grand Prix race winner, died this morning. He was 77.


Being reported he had two strokes.......

Gotta love those opportunistic winners,unless I'm misrecalling that was one of the rain-affected Monaco races and ended up being his only win.
