GP3 racer Melville McKee's grandfather Michael McKee did also some F2 races in the early 60s. Any details about that guy? Why no F1 races? His F2 results looks not that bad.

Just too many better drivers around, I suspect.

How are Prema Power principals Angelo and René Rosini related?
Have they been racing drivers themselves in the past?

Plaudits to Josh Hill who has called it a day on his racing career.

Good to know that someone is prepared to accept that he just hasn't really got what it takes. Good on him.

Seems a great shame, I was looking forward to a third generation Hill World Champ. Given that everyone by the name of Hill who has competed in F1 has become World Champion perhaps some aspiring driver should change his name by deed poll?

All lurkers here should know what a special person Damon Hill is, completely apart from his racing record.

Possibly Josh has shown us to be an even more special person - by acknowledging that there is more to life than the racing we all love. Three generations, three individuals that stand out.

Is multiple British truck racing champion, Stuart Oliver, related to Jackie Oliver?

Dad thinks he is. They do look vaguely similar, but my brother looks like Masten Gregory, and that doesn't mean they are related.

Montoya's father Pablo was also racing driver. I could nothing find about him, so I guess he just had some local races? Has anyone details about that?
