Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael Thackwell (born 30 March 1961) is a former Formula One driver from Auckland, New Zealand. The second youngest driver ever to qualify for a Grand Prix, he participated in five, making his first start on 28 September 1980 at the Canadian Grand Prix. He scored no championship points. He had previously attempted unsuccessfully to qualify for the Dutch Grand Prix which was held on 31 August 1980. For nearly 30 years he was often listed as the youngest driver to start a Formula One event, although this claim was arguable. In his debut race, Alan Jones and Nelson Piquet collided on the first lap under the bridge after the star/finish line and were subsequently hit by a number of other cars, including Jean-Pierre Jarier and Derek Daly, both Tyrrell drivers.show more
