1952 - Alberto Ascari drove Ferrari [Special] no 12

If you count Roger Ward and Lloyd Ruby, you should also include Troy Ruttman and Bobby Rahal

Sorry, I don't accept Ward as an F.1 driver. Granted he did attend a Grand Prix but given what he drove there I hardly think he qualifies.

Rodger Ward drove the USA GP in 1959 and 1963.

I yet included Bobby Rahal - and yeah, you are right: I have also to include Troy Ruttman.

I agree in the case of 1959, but 1963 is a kosher entry.

However, in this context, which is really GP regulars competing at Indianapolis, I don't think Indianapolis regulars dipping a toe in GP racing - Ward, Ruttman, Rahal, Unser should be included.

But it's HistoryFan's call


Edit: Crossed with Doug's post.

IIRC Rahal dipped his toe into F1 before becoming an Indycar driver

Ooops - I was obviously referring to 1959 and completely forgot the other years.

In my defence I must say.... er, I've forgotten what it was I was going to say.

After much sanding, painting, grinding of teeth and spitting of chips, Barry produced a new type of Formula One slot car driver...

The presence of F1 drivers in Indycar has always been a compelling part of that series. My favorite is the resurgence of Emerson in CART. Fascinating to watch.

Although I have a lot of images of ex-F1 drivers in Indy cars, the vast majority of them are not from Indy.

Eventually there will be a lot more of the various drivers, still mostly not from Indy.

You are welcome to view them anyway, if you so choose

And for some odd reason, this pic of Michael Andretti is the most viewed off all my images. Period.
