This not so mag­nif­i­cent Mag­yar was the first of his kind to race at the high­est level in the mod­ern era, al­though his equip­ment and abil­ity meant that his was hardly a star­ring role.

He crammed in some de­cent re­sults in a Euro­pean-wide feeder for­mula, which led to a pro­mo­tion to the third rung of the lad­der.

With back­ing from the real thing he con­tin­ued to rise up the ranks, earn­ing a test role with a wan­ing gi­antkiller. Op­por­tu­nity struck when in­jury forced out a reg­u­lar, al­low­ing him to make a de­but at home.

He was given a full-time role at a peren­nial min­now the fol­low­ing sea­son and made his point in a crazy race. He tried but failed to make a move across the pond, and al­most earned his

Spurs but failed to kick a ball.
