When the lights go out at the 2014 Australian Grand Prix, Marcus Ericsson, Caterham’s new driver, will become the 10th Swede to start a Formula One grand prix.
Based on the success of drivers from Sweden’s neighbour, Finland, you might expect that there have been many more Finnish drivers in the history of the F1 world championship. In fact, there have been fewer. Only eight Finns have started an F1 grand prix. The difference is, three of those Finns have become world champions.
