There is one thing that all the F1 drivers mentioned have in common.

Nutek will probably be along shortly to bring up the subject of John Cooper. .... Also McLaren was a driver, and the last F1 champion to win in a car manufactured in his own workshop.

McLaren have been posting some great pictures on their Facebook and twitter feeds of their old factory. I didn't realize they used to be based in Colnbrook, just down the road from where I used to live. Literally looking like a crappy kwik fit branch than the high tech MTC they have now.

**edit
There you go......

Bruce McLaren was never F1 champion. He did win four Grands Prix though.

That's not being pedantic, that's being vague.

I'm sure it won't. Being pedantic isn't a choice, it's a calling, a vocation.
