Mildly interesting side-note. I see in the pic that Chunky is wearing the silver team-jacket from the Essex era. I know a guy in my local area who worked for Olivetti in those days on the timing systems for the races and he has Mario Andretti's silver Essex Team Lotus jacket, which still bears sweat-stains inside the collar. I knew F1 drivers tended to be small gents but the diminutive size of Mario's jacket astounded me!

Same jackets- no idea who the other two blokes are but the one in the hat is former Essex owner David Thieme.

Sadly no. An interesting topic but loads of questionable 'facts'. I suspect the main problem was that Rohan is too young to remember it all unlike some of us.......
