The man who put the Netherlands on the F1 map

He was certainly no Max Verstappen, but nobleman Carel Godin de Beaufort - born on this day in 1934 - was nevertheless a trail blazer in his own right.

In 2016, Max became the first driver hailing from the Netherlands to win an F1 Grand Prix, but Godin was the very first Dutchman to score a world championship point in F1.

A gentleman-driver, Godin ran his own cars - painted in a vibrant Dutch orange - under the Ecurie Maarsbergen banner. At the 1962 Dutch Grand Prix he put his private Porsche and his rather limited ability to good use around the dunes of Zandvoort.

In a race won by BRM's Graham Hill, Godin came in sixth and collected a championship point.
