I would have liked to have seen Speed driving for a different team in F1; I don’t think we really got a chance to see how good he was. He was under constant pressure from STR management for not being called Sebastian Vettel, culminating in Franz Tost physically assaulting him at his final GP at the Nurburgring. Just one of many potentially promising F1 drivers who weren’t given a proper chance.
He couldn’t have been that terrible, he did finish 3rd in GP2 behind Rosberg and Kovalainen and he got a point at Australia 2006 but it was taking away for overtaking during yellow flags. Not a great F1 career but an EPIC name though.
Lol, I first learned of him in F1 2006(the game) and I honestly thought it was a joke. I thought “This has got to be a made up name just to put an American in this game.” I was a bit surprised when I figured out he was actually real.
