Just something kind of interesting that I came across tonight. Finish F1 drivers have striking coincidence of being connected to the “Lotus” name.
Mika Häkkinen (original version of team)
Mika Salo (original version of team)
JJ Lehto (Benetton which became Renault which became the current Lotus)
Heikki Kovalainen (“Green Lotus” aka/nka Caterham & possibly current Lotus in 2013)
Kimi Räikkönen (currently)
Nico Rosberg (drove for ART GP in GP2, team is now known as Lotus GP)
Valtteri Bottas (ART/Lotus in F3 & GP3)
Keke Rosberg is the only Finish F1 driver that I can not connect to driving for any version of Lotus, however he did manage Nico in GP2. Also while Nico in the FIA goes as German, that is because the FIA goes by Passports, he is a duel citizen of Finland & Germany and has raced as Finish when he was younger.
