I thought about posting this in the 'Link the Drivers' thread but didn't want to hijack that!
So the aim is to get from one driver to another in 6 or less links - However the links have to be from working with other people rather than teams.
You can use drivers and engineers - I'd prefer to leave out team principals just because their careers with a team usually span so far so it makes it a bit easy, but it can be used if really needed ;) Also you can't just use who their current managers are! Otherwise people like Mika Hakkinen make it too easy again.

So as an example - Valtteri Bottas to Jackie Ickx

1.) Valterri Bottas drove at Williams with Felipe Massa
2.) Massa drove at Ferrari with Michael Schumacher
3.) Schumacher drove at Benetton with Nelson Piquet
4.) Nelson Piquet drove at Brabham with Niki Lauda
5.) Niki Lauda drove at Ferrari with Clay Regazzoni
6.) Clay Regazzoni drove at Ferrari with Jackie Ickx

Whoever gets it gets to make the next one! I'll start us off:

Esteban Guiterrez to Nigel Mansell

Go!

Okay, I had to make an unusual connection here to make this one work, but I think it's valid!

---

1) Esteban Guiterrez test-drives for Ferrari with Jean-Eric Vergne
2) Jean-Eric Vergne drove at Toro Rosso in a car designed by James Key
3) James Key was a data engineer at Jordan for Damon Hill
4) Damon Hill drove at Williams with David Coulthard
5) David Coulthard drove at McLaren with Mika Hakkinen
6) Mika Hakkinen drove at McLaren with Nigel Mansell

---

For mine, I select...

Jenson Button to Alain Prost

Interesting! I thought it'd be a case of going via Sutil to F.India/Spyker drivers but that also works!

Probably an easier route (maybe using Barichelo?). And the final link is tenuous!

Ericsson raced with Adrian Sutil for Sauber in 2014
Sutil is currently Williams Reserve driver with Bottas
Bottas raced at Williams with Maldonado in 2013
Maldonado raced at Williams with Bruno Senna
Berger acted as Bruno Senna's advisor.

Haha. Of course he did.

How soon the back markers have faded from my memory.

I think this one is bulletproof:

1. Sakon Yamamoto drove with Takuma Sato at Super Aguri
2. Takuma Sato drove with Giancarlo Fisichella at Jordan
3. Giancarlo Fisichella drove with Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari
4. Kimi Raikkonen drove with Luca Badoer at Ferrari
5. Luca Badoer drove with Michele Alboreto at Lola

For mine, I select something ambitious: Kimi Raikkonen to James Hunt

This was tough but it can be done! Was trying to find a way not to double up on Ferrari at the start but couldn't find a way..

Kimi Raikkonen drove @ Ferrari with Felipe Massa
Felipe Massa drove @ Ferrari with Michael Schumacher
Michael Schumacher drove @ Benetton with Riccardo Patrese
Riccardo Patrese drove @ Arrows with Jochen Mass
Jochen Mass drove @ Mclaren with James Hunt

Here's another one - Mark Webber to Emerson Fittipaldi

If nobody else posts anything I'll give that a shot in a day or two, but I'm hoping to attract some more people :-P

Mansell drove with Rosberg at Williams
Rosberg drove with Fittipaldi at Fittipaldi

That was pretty difficult considering Webber made his debut 22 years after Emmo retired.

Try Eddie Cheever and Jean Alesi.

Quite a long time since a reply here but I find the thread interesting!

So, anyways:

1.) Keke Rosberg drove with Alain Prost at McLaren in 1986.
2.) Alain Prost drove with Ayrton Senna at McLaren in 1988/1989.
3.) Ayrton Senna drove with Mika Hakkinen at McLaren in 1993.
4.) Mika Hakkinen drove with David Coulthard at McLaren in 1996–2001.
5.) David Coulthard drove with Mark Webber at RBR in 2007–2008.
6.) Mark Webber drove with Nico Rosberg at Williams in 2006.

Maybe there was another route but that was the one I could figure out without the use of Wikipedia. :)


Next one: Lewis Hamilton to Niki Lauda.

5. Alain Prost drove with Niki Lauda at McLaren



Next one: Ayrton Senna to Jim Clark.

I think mine was the same except for Damon Hill instead of Hakkinen. Nice work!

Right I think I've got the wrong end of the stick here, I just picked Senna and Clark at random and didn't check if it could even be done :lol: .

I'll be back with a new one later but if someone's got one to go then fire away.
