There is this one Angolan-guy who might hold that record.

You mean Ricardo Teixeira.

 

There was also Jason Tahincioglu in 2006.

Ricardo Teixeira was awful, Giancarlo Serenelli was ok but the car setup was utter crap.

Oh right, Teixeira failed to make 107% in Monaco one time correct? Although I seem to remember him racing in 2012 with Serenelli in the field and Teixeira was slightly faster(??). It's a close call :p
