What about Pastor Maldonado? That would make at last two, right?

How about Jonathan Williams? Although British, he was born in Cairo, Egypt. Egypt is a non-F1 country I think. :lol:

He only took part in one GP back in the late 60's.



Hmm was wondering if a race track could be built around the Pyramids of Giza. I wonder how popular or unpopular that idea would be. :armchair:

Check the topic date, dude. That post was made the year before Maldonado débuted in F1.
