Yep, JJ Lehto or Jyrki Järvilehto as his name goes properly. His career was another story of "damn shame!".

Putting splendid performances in the Onyx/Monteverdi, the Dallaras and the Saubers. Then finally got his break in Benetton and promptly got a break on his neck, which pretty much ended his F1-career.

Nowadays he is the commentator on Finnish f1-broadcasts.

And also, one of the people who kept the basic design of his helmet the same thorough his career. even in DTM, ITC, GT1, Le Mans and CART

BTW, thats Räikkönen with two K's and two N's. Not Raikonnen (Raikkonen is fine if you have no umlauts though)

How about the 1985 RAM-Hart? I always felt it was rather a pretty car, and the chassis was pretty decent, and it could have performed well if the team had had more money and a decent engine.

My favourite teams: Minardi, Forti, Osella

Beautiful car, bearing more than a passing resemblance to the ATS of 1984. Both were designed by Gustav Brunner. The revised car that Mike Thackwell tested during the winter of 1985, with Australia sponsorship looked even better.

The yellow 1995 Forti was a great looking car, a really refreshing sight. Too bad that it was so slow.

I think Kovalainen must've been at least influenced by his helmet. Maybe JJ Lehto was his childhood hero or something.

Even though March isn't a Reject team per se........RAM, who ran the March Factory efforts of 81 and 82 are a Reject Team.......

There is something about Cars bearing Rothmans Sponsorship that I find immensely appealing.....March 821, Porsche 935/956/962, Williams mid-90's F1 cars..............

My favourite reject liveries are the MasterCard Lola T97/30, MTV Simtek S941 and Pacific PR01.

They're on the reject team list, so yes, Behra-Porsche-Porsche does count.
(The most rejectful thing about them is their constructor name. Even worse than BMW Sauber-Ferrari!)

What's the story behind that? I've not heard of the Behra double Porsche before.

I think the 2nd Porsche refers to the engine.

According to a quote in the Autosport forum
(https://forums.autosport.com/topic/1808 ... ies/page-7) that's not the Behra-Porsche but this is.

Even if it does have an image of the wrong car on it. The photo shows another F1 reject, Juan Manuel Bordeu, in his Formula Junior Stanguellini at Monaco in 1959.
