Forgotten Heroes Series
The majority of the most popular articles on this site are from the Forgotten Heroes feature I did last year. With that in mind, I’ve made a dedicated page on this blog, giving links to all Forgotten Heroes articles, and will be updated with new ones in the future.
Ronnie Peterson – One of the greatest drivers never to win a world championship, but never as revered as much as Stirling Moss.
Luigi Fagioli – Couldn’t make as much as an impact on post-war Grand Prix racing as he would have wanted, but still a driver to be feared.
François Cevert – A single F1 victory to his name, yet his death was one of the greatest tragedies in the sport.
Wolfgang von Trips – When Ferrari refuse to compete in a race after a driver’s death, you start to realise how brilliant a driver Von Trips was.
Piers Courage – A miniature James Hunt in the making, Courage never got the chance to realise his amazing potential.
Patrick Depallier – Yet another example of a future world champion having his future ripped out of his hands.
Stefan Bellof – Set one of the best laps on the Nurburgring Nordschleife in history, but a paltry 4 points in F1 says it all.
