Jack of two trades. A good farmer too, by all accounts.

Pollet (who(m?) I remembered all by myself)

and

Pretorius (of whom I was reminded whilst confirming Pollet on Richie Jenkins' Where Are They Now site. [Yes, I realise that's cheating])

Surely some of those Jacks were Johns...or Jeans...

We had a local champ who really was a Jack: proper name, Jack Aubrey Nelson. Even his club and his competitors often thought he was a John.

It's OK...the name they're most known by will do. Can't believe I forgot Lewis and Sears.

By the way, in my own case, Jack is my given name...

I wasn't going to include Jack Sears as I thought we were sticking to F1 drivers only - not that it matters.

So add Coulon.

Jack Sears did test an F1 car though, does this count? He told me he had a run in a Cooper in 1958 or '59. Yeoman Credit IIRC?

van der Ende

After winning the 1997 Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch, he was promised a test drive with the Stewart Ford SF1. Unfortunately, this never happened.

He raced an F2 Cooper-Climax for Yeoman Credit in 1960 - only once, from memory, but did very well

But if someone mentioned Jack Stewart you wouldn't think of JYS, anymore than Jim Hunt would conjour up another ex-world champion. So I don't think that should count. Should every John, Jacques and Jackie be included in this list of Jacks? Jackie Bolster sounds quite good though

As the party guilty of starting this thread I have deemed Jack and all of its derivatives and translations as qualified....

Jack (etc.)

I was hoping no-one would mention that (one of the nastiest songs of all time, to my mind) , unless someone can confirm my recollection of a British club racing driver of the same name. In the 70s, I think.

David,

Reference Jack Sears he drove the F2 Cooper-Climax for Yeoman Credit twice, once at Crystal Palace finishing 3rd and once in the Vanwall Trophy at Snetterton on August 6 where he retired with ignition trouble. Ken Gregory offered him a full time drive but as he had a young family at the time he declined to take up the drive. The only other single seater racing car he ever drove was Nobby Spero's Maserati in a historic race before historic racing became popular

It was the Crystal Palace one I remembered - forgot about the Vanwall Trophy

can't agree on that
Hans comes from Johannes in Holland, don't see why it would be different in Germany
so for me Hans is more a John than a Jack

I believe I've seen the name "Hanschen." Is that a diminuitive of Hans?

But Jack is a diminutive of John (exactly as Hans is a diminutive of Johannes :D )

Hans is Jean in french, so John ( apparently ? ) in english....( city Saint Jean de Terre Neuve is Saint John of Newfoundland afaik...)....but Jack is a nickname for John , so as Hugo says Hans is eventually Jack....but not Jacques

So maybe Johan ( Johannes ? ) is John too ?

What are the 12 apostles called in english, anyway ?

Joakim ( swedish) is Joachim ( in french ) so "Jo" in anglais ( for Bonnier ) ? but Jo is also used for Joseph ( Siffert )....so ?

...oh well....
