Colin Davis or at least he would be were it not for winning the 1964 Targa Florio.

Until he was mentioned in this article (no he wasn't in the top 10!):

I had forgotten Brendon Hartley.

I posted about Felipe Massa earlier which, thinking about him, reminded me of the forgettable Felipe Nasr.

Who on earth could forget about Felipe Nasr?

I only remember because of the similarities of the names of Nasr and Massa...

There was a time when "Paul di Resta driving for Williams in 2017" was a pub quiz answer that would have stumped me. Now it's Paul di Resta's entire F1 career if I'm being honest. I guess, as I don't follow any of the pre- or post-race content, I never see him, so without his constant presence on my television screen I have lost almost all memory of when he was a driver.

That’s what reminded me. If he walked past me in the street I wouldn’t recognise him. Can’t even remember who he drove for, was it Sauber?

Ralph Firman Jr. Having a posh accent and famous Dad (in racing circles) just wasn't enough.

Speaking of which, it won't be long before we've forgotten about Jolyon Palmer too.

I had forgotten Jean-Eric Vergne when I saw a clip from 2014 and saw a "VER" on the running order and thought to myself "but Max Verstappen didn't start until 2015"!!!! :facepalm:

I just saw an article about Nigel Stepney online and the photo was two McLaren drivers, Hamilton and.......I knew his face but I genuinely couldn't remember his name for about two minutes.

Kovaleinen :facepalm:
