Birthdays F1 drivers

Post by Antonov » 3 years ago

On the bottom we see the birthday of the FL members displayed.

Do you think we could do that too for F1 drivers past and current? (obviously I would need to compose a quite lengthy list)

But it would be fun to dig up memories, moments,... on the occasion of birthdays of F1 drivers (not only the drivers with fame, but also the lesser known quantities).

I’m guessing they’d have to be a script added to the forum backend then you’d have to setup a database of all drivers birthdays to pull from.

An easier way would be for you to compile a list of drivers and their birthdays and then set up a thread in the Nostaliga section. How’s about that?

Cool. I’m looking forward to your new thread and information that you’ll put together for the forum

@Antonov you will probably find statsf1.com a good archive to source most of the info you require.... an alphabetical listing of all drivers and info such as date of birth.
http://www.statsf1.com/en/pilotes.aspx shows the current drivers, but there are on links on that page to all drivers through the ABC links.

*Sebastian, Lance is faster than you... do you understand?*


*I married Miss Right. Just didn't know her first name was Always
