He scored Red Bull's first ever podium at Monaco in 2006, and took the trophy wearing a Superman cape. And then, very early into his time at Red Bull (possibly even Australia 2005) he said "bollocks" in a TV interview and gave rise to Sniff Petrol's Crazy Dave character... bling bling innit.

And you're telling me you don't remember that?

Katayama drove for Minardi in 1997. I have seen the photographic evidence. #hadnoclue

I know it's been mentioned already, but one that always eludes my mind is Norberto Fontana. Probably because of the other two argentinian rejects that also raced at around the same time as him (Mazzacane and Tuero - both of them pretty forgettable aswell).

Mike Beuttler

British driver, born in Cairo, Egypt, who drove the "Clarke-Mordaunt-Guthrie" team using a March chassis from 1971-73. He never scored points but occasionally finished in the midfield (would have scored on six occasions under today's points system).

He was also the only Formula One driver known to be gay, and it has been rumoured (though never confirmed) that he enjoyed particularly "close" relationships with his backers. Ralph Clarke (the "Clarke" in the team name) was openly gay so you never know ;)

You learn something new every day (hopefully). I didn't know that there were any drivers known to be homosexual.

If that's an attempt at a joke Baker that's a pretty piss poor effort. It's not a laughing matter.

If it isn't a joke, then you've stooped pretty low there I'm afraid. Thought you were better than that.

Back to Fontana, the only thing I can ever remember about him is his pathetic blocking of Jacques Villeneuve in the 1997 championship-decider due to Sauber being Ferrari customers....(I mean even Ralf Schumacher got out the way faster than he did!!) :)

Thing is, he was often the quicker driver, just not when it counted.

Same with Minardi in general really, there were many times that season where they had a genuine advantage over Jordan.

Alfa Romeo first used a naturally aspirated engine in their first few seasons as a constructor.

I always thought with their reliability woes that they always had a Turbo.

But all F1 engines in the 1950s were normally aspirated? I guess you're referring to the 1980s-spec Alfa team however?

Yeah, the original F1 regulations allowed for 4.5 litre naturally aspirated and 1.5 litre forced induction (supercharged or turbocharged) engines.

I knew those rules existed in the 1970s (hence why Renault tried the turbo option in the late 1970s), and I think I knew there were similar rules in the 1950s, but I clearly wasn't aware that those rules were exploited then - I had just assumed that all were NA in the 1950s, unlike the late '70s/'80s.

Yes I meant the 80's incarnation! You'd have thought with all those engine failures, they'd be using a Turbo.

Even being a hopelessly devoted Alfisti, even I have to admit that it wasn't that the engines were turbos, it was because they were Alfas :)

There was the BRM P15 as well in that era, which had a 1.5 litre supercharged V16 engine (and a vicious spike in power when the superchargers kicked in - the indicated power output pretty much doubled over a range of 3,000rpm).

For a multiple race winner who drove for both Ferrari and McLaren, I tend to find Patrick Tambay quite forgettable. I don't know what it is. But it just seems like he was pure filler for me.

- Kovalainen
- Lairini

Legit forgot that Heikki drove in F1.
