I like to think that I have heard of every single driver, but Stephen South is certainly one of the less notable ones in terms of their F1 careers. I do remember that he was quite a promising driver in his day, but his career but cut short by an accident in which he lost his foot.

I once came across his name in the past and just thought, "Who the flipping heck is he?!?!?" That made him kinda memorable straight away.

He didn't manage to qualify for his sole race with McLaren in 1980 and things went south (no pun intended) after that whole foot amputation thing ending his racing career, but its nice to know he still visits historic meetings after the latter.

He actually had a biography released only a couple of weeks ago (it's supposed to be great, actually) and I think someone here (Ataxia?) has been looking at profiling South at some stage. But yeah, he's definitely one of the better drivers with nothing better than a DNQ to his name in F1. Really unfortunate that it was Long Beach where he got his début given how weak McLaren were on street circuits in those days (Watson, a street circuit specialist, only qualified 21st).

I'd hardly call him forgettable though. Solely in terms of having driven in F1, maybe, but among "might-have-beens" like, say, Gonchi Rodríguez or Paul Warwick, absolutely not.

Two drivers who jumped out at me after looking at the 2016 list:

Rio Haryanto and Felipe Nasr. I'd completely forgotten about both of them already.

Get out.

I hadn't forgotten about Gabriele Tarquini but I did forget he'd had such a long F1 career, I had it in my head he'd just done that one race in 1995 for Tyrell. Doh!

I did indeed. It may be because he had hair then.

The possibility of Charles Leclerc gaining a race seat next year has got me thinking, he'll be only the 4th Monagasgue driver in F1 History and only the 3rd to start a race as one of them never qualified, step forward Andre Testut!

The other two, off the top of my head, being Olivier Beretta and Louis Chiron?

Hardly likely that he won't unless of course, he doesn't get a race seat next year.

Unless he has a weekend reminiscent of MasterCard Lola...



Which is, of course, highly improbable.
