I don't get it...what are the links between non-blood-related drivers? How is Max Chilton connected to Graham Hill, for instance? It makes no sense to display them in this way, unless I'm missing something.

i dont think that there is any link. you just match the colours. these appear to be the only connections

ps. for us oldies (and even some youngsters) there is a great article about pironi on GP247. brave chap.

Al Unser's photo is that of Al, Jr.

Where's Marco Andretti?

Where's Ian, Jody and Tomas Scheckter?

Where's Edgar and Jurgen Barth?

There's probably far too many to list but it would have been better to list relatives who had at least one world championship amongst them.

Kenny Roberts, Kenny Roberts Jnr. and Kurtis Roberts.
Father and 2 sons, both Kenny's world champions.

Ron Haslam, 2 times a world champion, his brothers Phil and Terry as well as his son Leon.

Multi Trials world trials champion Dougie Lampkin, his father Martin also a world champion and his uncles Arthur and John.

“The motorsports family tree” whoever was responsible for both penning and approval to print of this article should be send back to undertake a crash course in both researching a subject for print and the print management approval.
CRASHNET as an F1 site should be more in a passion of correcting their posters than being corrected by its posters.
