The administrative area that a place is in is not necessarily the same as the postal area. For example I used to live in a house that was between Bexley and Dartford. Administratively we were in Dartford and paid our rates (local taxes) to them, but our postal address was 'Bexley'. I would expect that Alan and V2 have kept the same postal address through all the changes.
Richard, I think you'll have to decide which you are going to use.

I can identify with all this confusion. I live in Qawra but most people call it Bugibba when in fact, the whole area is St. Pauls Bay, as is the post code.

Me too Barry, as at one time I lived in Batley, my postal address was Dewsbury and my postcode was Wakefield! :drunk:

Blundell was born in Barnet in 1966, but Barnet was already in Greater London from 1965, so, Hertfordshire should be wrong - etc. etc

With the counties in Great Britain, this discussion, whilst valid, crops up every so often and as the subsequent posts have alluded, it's a minefield and there are also inconsistences. The thing is, not one British person can say that the above is wrong per se, or Harrow, or Darlington etc, so I will leave the Counties as they are, because someone else will come along in 3 months and make equally valid responses back.

The place of death of Kay should be Marlborough, Connecticut, not Marlboro Indeed so, will be changed as will Bourdais, Schlessler

Lippi - the real complete name of the deathplace of Lippi is Lavinio - Lido di Enea (usually abbreviated only with Lavinio)
http://rete.comuni-i..._-_Lido_di_Enea

Fine, that's no problem, that will be changed as will Adolff, Migault, Simon

Gethin - the correct name of deathplace is Old Henley, Haslemere, not Haselmere

Fat fingers, nothing more, spelling error, sorry

There is an inversion in the nationality of Maldonado, YV not VY Whoops

You have changed the abbreviation of uruguay drivers from U to ROU (like the new international abbreviations) and now you should change also the abbreviation of the finnish drivers - from SF to FIN (Häkkinen, Järvilehto, Kinnunen, Kovalainen, Kozarowitzky, Räikkönen, Rosberg Keijo e Salo) because the new abbreviation is in use from 1993.

I will need Allen's help here as the database only picks up certain charachers with the nations. This is why the old U was changed to ROU as it didn't pick up as a nation. SF for now comes up as Finland on the database. If I change it to FIN, it'll come up as FranceIndonesia (or something similiar), so we'll need to rewrite the script, but I agree with the sentiment

About Naylor I have read that his death was caused by an accident, road or aircraft or other?
Yes, it was a boat accident,that likely contributed to his early passing, but not actually caused it

and about Rounds I have found an information about his death but also him only "accident", road or aircraft?
Definitely not. Died of cancer. The "aircraft" accident was alleged to have killed him in 1962, long before he actually died, so forget that particular line of information, it diverted me for a long time from the real information


Sorry for the late reply in all this, but as those of you who are my friends on Facebook may be aware, there are more important things going on in my life this week. But tonight I'm home and I'll respond in kind.

But thank you very much because I am nitpicky, albiet nitpicky in my favour :lol: and I appreciate the little pointers and advice like this. Once life settles down again, I'll update the website.

Good morning, after years finally I came back to this website, to update the informations of my documents about Formula 1 drivers... :)

I have read every posts of this years and checked every biography in the website, I was only in 2008!!!

In the meanwhile I have found some little mistakes or little corrections to suggest. I'm sorry if my words seem too much raw... it's because I don't speak english very well but I'm slowly improving :p

Blundell was born in Barnet in 1966, but Barnet was already in Greater London from 1965, so, Hertfordshire should be wrong

The place of death of Kay should be Marlborough, Connecticut, not Marlboro
http://www.marlboroughct.net/

Bourdais - in the biography the correct info should be "winning the title four years in a row between 2004 and 2007"

Schlesser Jo - there is a little mistake in the biography (Madagascar)

Pease - I have no evidence of Darlington from Yorkshire to Durham, but only Darlington in Durham. If I'm wrong there is also the birthplace of Robinson Tony (in team bosses section) to change, infact he was born in 1929 in Darlington, Durham.

Lippi - the real complete name of the deathplace of Lippi is Lavinio - Lido di Enea (usually abbreviated only with Lavinio)
http://rete.comuni-i..._-_Lido_di_Enea

Adolff - the deathplace is only Kreuth (without am-Tegernsee, the lake Tegernsee is close to the town and in the logo of the town there is Kreuth am Tegernsee but the name is only Kreuth. There is also a town named "Tegernsee")
http://www.postleitz...miesbach/kreuth
http://www.kreuth.de...akt-kreuth.html

Migault - the correct name of deathplace is Parigne-l'Eveque with "-" as usually for the french names of the cities.

Burgess - the deathplace of Harrow is in Greater London, not Middlesex, from 1965

Simon - the complete name of the deathplace is Evian-les-Bains (as confirmed by the road signs, you can see them in Google Street View :) )

Gethin - the correct name of deathplace is Old Henley, Haslemere, not Haselmere
http://www.haslemere.com/

There is an inversion in the nationality of Maldonado, YV not VY

There is a little mistake in the deathplace of Nuckey - Philippines with only one "L"

You have changed the abbreviation of uruguay drivers from U to ROU (like the new international abbreviations) and now you should change also the abbreviation of the finnish drivers - from SF to FIN (Häkkinen, Järvilehto, Kinnunen, Kovalainen, Kozarowitzky, Räikkönen, Rosberg Keijo e Salo) because the new abbreviation is in use from 1993.

I have found a different information for the death of Flaherty, emphysema but maybe he had also a cancer... I can't verify this news at all.

About Naylor I have read that his death was caused by an accident, road or aircraft or other?

and about Rounds I have found an information about his death but also him only "accident", road or aircraft?

and that's all!!!
as usually my congratulations for this big job :clap:

now is time to enjoy a new F1 championship... finally!!! :D




The accident to Brian Naylor happened when he was working on a yacht and seemingly some bottled gas had leaked and in the explosion Brian was killed.

Completely O.T. but since Brian Naylor has been mentioned, I've had a request from his grandson for a model of the J.B.W Maserati. He saw my slot race version and asked if he could have one.

I must get around to making it soon.

Sorry - back to W.A.T.N.

I think it's Radaris putting two and two together and making five. I do know that Caliva is brother-in-law to former F1 team boss Walter Wolf (mentioned in that Radaris) article, but I'd be suprised if Phil would then change HIS name to his brother-in-law's.

Re Miguel Ángel de Castro Santos: On his own website he confirms that he was born in April (not June).

 

I am pretty confident that he is not identical to the occasional rally driver who according to ewrc-results.com died in June 2013.

One to go in the WC team bosses section - Martino Finotto died last week, Autosport has an obituary.  Born 1933, so he was comparatively ancient when he won his first world title, in Group C2.

Ens, I was aware of Finotto's passing, I've remarked to it in the "Gone but not Forgotten" thread.

 

The reason he's not in, is the same as Rob Walker and so on. It's... murky. It's too long to explain here and now, but I will one day.

Carlo Giorgio has passed away.

 

ACI CSAI si unisce al dolore per la scomparsa a 66 anni di Carlo Giorgio. Giorgio vinse un titolo italiano nella F.3 nel 1973, su una Ensign-Ford della Jolly Club e su una March-Ford della scuderia Trivellato. In F.2 ottenne successi su ogni tracciato europeo. Il sodalizio con Roberto Angiolini della Jolly Club permise l'approdo in F.1 con una A.G.S., grazie anche allo sponsor Charro, che nel 1986 portò al debutto nella massima formula Ivan Capelli.

 

The news is dated 28.09.2014 but I don't know yet whether that is actually the day he died.

Reading from his Facebook page, the longest tribute says "today we lost" at around 10am, so I would think it was early morning 28.9.14. Although the first report of his death around 9.27am says "this morning the news came through".

 

Giorgio was a popular well known man so I doubt it will be long before the relevant details come through.

Apparently Walter Habegger died on 13 June 2014 in Fiesch, Valais.

I have to admit I didn't know his full name.

BTW: The correct spelling of his birth place is Oberönz (although Oberoenz would be acceptable).

Thanks Reinhard, just updating and amending now. Bit surprised by that full-name revelation which doesn't appear anywhere other than this memorial notice and wasn't mentioned by his nephew who gave me the biographical data (so it's definitely the right man) and photo of him..

Shouldn’t Giuseppe Risi be included in the team bosses section of your site?

 

It seems he owned the car which Emilio de Villota drove in 1977 (McLaren M23/6). At least he was the team manager and later also played a role in the Rebaque team. Afterwards he became a Ferrari dealer in Houston, Texas, and became famous for his “Risi Competizione” team.

Team bosses is a murky area but it was decided a while back that people like Risi, Rob Walker, Roy Winkelmann and so on didn't come under the parameters set. But its not an exact science - hence me only just adding the likes of Todt recently
