Wow indeed i already forgot about Di Resta's williams stint!

I did not forget Giovinazzi's because at least he crashed spectacularly. And Buttons immense 'motivation' was certainly unforgettable as well :D

I don't know what i want and i want it now!

His motivation to pee into Alonso's seat, you mean?

Bruno Senna was the one put in Heidfeld's seat in 2011. I remember Heidfeld losing his drive, but I totally forgot it was Senna. Even though he was in eight races, the idea he was part of 2011 is so weird to me.

I keep forgetting that Denny Hulme was ever a world champion. Most anonymous champion ever?

The other one I'm always forgetting is Mike Hawthorn, so probably those 2 indeed.

Just corrected my spelling mistake. So anonymous I couldn't spell his name right.

There is one thing I remember about Hawthorn and his championship. He was due to be DSQ from a race (Portugal?), and thanks to evidence from Moss, got reinstated. Moss then later loses the title to Hawthorn by 1 point. If Moss hadn't helped with Hawthorn's reinstatement, the title would have been his.

And Rindt's title might have been anonymous to me too if it hadn't been won posthumously.

Had there not been Graham and Damon I think Phil Hill's title would be also more forgettable.

He would otherwise just be a footnote as the first American champion. But it helps that Hill won the championship in consecutive years in 1961 and 1962. ;) And every Hill to have entered the sport has won the title, not just some of them. Better than Andretti, Fittipaldi and Schumacher. Better even than Rosberg - two Rosbergs v. three Hills.

The one I tend to forget is Andretti because 1) my knowledge of the 1970s isn't very good and 2) I associate him with another continent's scene the most. I always remember Hawthorn because of the story behind it and frankly the debate over whether he deserved to be champion, Phil Hill because 1961 just sticks out if you know the history of the regulations around then, Surtees because of the dramatic finish and tbh because "er, I know it wasn't Clark" would be embarrassing, Hulme admittedly mainly because of GPL... I don't want to say they stick out by being bad, but....

I recently stumbled upon this website. A lot on there reminds me of the old driver profiles on f1rejects. Anybody know more about these guys? They mention they are a facebook group, but I don't use facebook and I'm not planning on changing that just for some 5 minutes of research. Is anyone from gprejects involved by any chance, or is this all mere coincidence?

That website looks like a wonderful site. Thank you for sharing! Looking at the Facebook page, it looks like it's a two-man operation, as this site used to be back in the day, neither of whom is a name I recognise from here. But it's nice to see another fan site focusing on the lesser known drivers of the sport.

Their Facebook page is rather wonderful and full of older people involved in F1 decades ago, including some actual drivers like Mike Wilds and Andrea Chiesa! Their profiles don't seem as thorough as ours, but instead they focused on having as much info as possible on everyone who matches their definition and building on the profiles whenever they can. Rather flatteringly, they cite their sources and have included us as sources for their articles!

I had noticed. That's why I asked if anyone from here was involved over there as well. And even if their articles might not be as in-depth as the ones here, I think it's great to see so many sites dedicated to "forgotten" or "reject" drivers from the past. I use quotation marks, because as long as someone remembers them and even goes as far as creating a website about them, they'll never really be forgotten, only to casual followers of the sport. :)
