Giovanni Lavaggi (1995-1996)
Red flags will likely be raised anytime a driver makes their F1 debut at 37-years-old. This isn’t ageism, not by any stretch, but the simple reality that F1 is a young man’s game.
For Lavaggi a late start to a career lead to a brief stay in F1. He came from a noble family and recorded seven-starts in F1 and never earned a Drivers’ Championship point but he had a career day at the 1996 Marlboro Hungarian Grand Prix where he finished 10th.
