Perry McCarthy (pictured centre between Mark Blundell and Allan McNish) earned his Formula 1 chance the hard way, and was ill-rewarded for his efforts.
At Spa-Francorchamps he was sent out with a broken steering column. The team folded when owner Andrea Sasseti was arrested and McCarthy moved on to a successful sports car career.
He later appeared on BBC TV’s Top Gear as The Stig.
