NASIR AND THE HOST PREPARE FOR THE 2020 SEASON AND THE ALONSO TRUISMS CONTINUE TO ROLL…THIS WEEKS SPECIAL DRIVER INTERVIEW IS PEDRO LAMY!
José Pedro Mourão Lamy Viçoso is a former Portuguese Formula One driver who is currently driving for spotscars. He was the first Portuguese driver to score a point in the world championship.
When Italian driver Alessandro Zanardi had a horrible crash in 1993 at Belgium, he replaced Zanardi for the rest of the season.
In 1994, at the second race in Japan, Lamy finished 8th, but on the race in San Marino, Lamy crashed into Lehto, and the tyres from his car flew off the track and into the crowd, who got injured after being hit by the tyres from Lamy’s car. Lehto’s car spilled oil on the track. His 1994 season ended with a private testing crash at Silverstone that made him miss the rest of the season, being replaced by Alessandro Zanardi.
In 1995, he signed a contract to race in the second half of the season with Minardi, replacing Pierluigi Martini. He scored a single point in the final race at Adelaide, which was the team’s only point of their season and Lamy’s only point of his career.
Lamy was retained by Minardi for 1996, but had scored no points.
