Oh for sure, my comment was certainly not a criticism, if these young guys can handle a fast race car - it shows how far we have come and its brilliant for racing. In other sports you see people starting very young too. Smile

If we were put you in there, we would need a camera in the cockpit. lol!

The way the article is worded suggests that he is not the youngest ever driver at Le Mans. He is the youngest ever British Driver and the youngest LMP1 driver. So who was the youngest ever driver to compete at Le Mans Question

I found Ricardo Rodriguez (brother of Pedro) who took part in the 750cc class in 1959 at 17, a year later was the youngest to stand on the Podium at 18.
Mark Blundell was the youngest pole sitter in 1990 at 24.
***EDIT*****
Gunnar Jeanette is the youngest ever finisher in 2000 at 18 years.
