Does somebody knows more on this "alternative driver" affair ?
Any bio information on Clive Santo (birthdate...) ?
Where is he know ?

Where is he now ? (not : "know" !)
If a Teddy Mayer had thought of him as a likely reserve driver, I guess he was not so bad a driver, was he ?

And from this not so uncommon case (some driver being ready to deputize for some other, but not even practising), to ask why they are not systematically registered as "alternative drivers" in our F1 compilations.
Did some TNFer try to draw a complete list of these comparable cases ?
From a first glance, I remember :
- Maurizio Flammini (Lauda's Ferrari), Jarama 1976
- Jean-Pierre Jaussaud (Jarier's Shadow), Zandvoort 1976
- Piercarlo Ghinzani (Cheever's Osella), Long Beach 1980
- Derek Warwick (Mass's Arrows), Montréal 1980
- Geoff Lees (Mansell's Lotus), Brands Hatch 1982
- Mario Andretti (Tambay's Renault), Detroit 1984 — I think it was yet discussed in another thread.
- Josele Garza (Martini's Minardi), Spa 1988
- Martin Donnelly (Piquet's Lotus), Rio 1989
- Johnny Dumfries (Herbert's Benetton), Rio 1989
- Nicola Larini (Berger's Ferrari) & Enrico Bertaggia (Larini's Osella), Mexico 1989
What do you all think of that ?

...inside the cockpit Santo invariably had a couple of pretty lurid colour magazine cut-out shots of large-breasted women to keep him company
God alone knows when he found time to look at them!

However, he had raced McLaren F5000 chassis, knew the right Brazilian (helpful on the entry front), and had plenty of money...!
He was a stamp dealer, wasn't he?
