I couldn't find the info on the Kickstarter page but I was curious what historical drivers will be available.

No Alain Prost? He seems to the most glaring omission.

Also Dan Gurney, only because his name was on one of the pledge levels! No Gurney with the Gurney?laugh

I know Doug has more drivers created; I think they will be part of expansions if sales are high enough to support expansions.

I just tried my hand at running four drivers at Monaco. I wished to get a feel for how it works.

It was confusing and slow at first but I started to get the hang of it after the one-lap trial. Here are the results:

Senna
Raikkonen
Rindt
Vettel

I doubt I did everything exactly right and I know I screwed over Rindt (a tire was hiding under his card). Regardless, it was pretty cool how you could see the different strategy cards play out on the track. The work Doug must've put into this is incredible - some of the best AI I've ever seen for a board game.

Minor drawback - no markers for the strategy cards come with the game. I think I'll use paper clips or something 'stickier' next time. The markers I used kept migrating on me.

The five drivers I have already built but did not get included in this kickstarter are:

Stirling Moss
Alain Prost
Albert Ascari
Damon Hill
Giuseppe (Nino) Farina

Dan Gurney is on my list of possible future drivers but just missed the cut-off for my first batch. He is definitely deserving.

Do we know if any historical drivers will come in the retail box?

Also, I know nothing of F1 history but is Andretti not really of any significance? That was the only guy I'd ever heard of but maybe because he was famous in other venues?

Andretti really did just miss my cut. He did have a good F1 career but is more well known for his Indy Car efforts.

While we are down this rabbit hole, here is the list of drivers I considered. Ones at the top were closer to being realized / probably first up when I add more. Although not on this list, I recently considered adding Nico Rosberg to this list.

Ronnie Peterson
Mario Andretti
Mike Hawthorne
John Surtees
Keke Rosberg
Dan Gurney
Francois Cevet
Jenson Button
Alan Jones
Phil Hill
Carlos Reutemann
Stefan Bellof
Clay Regazzoni
Gerhard Berger
Jean Behra
Riccardo Patrese
Jacky Ickx
Eugenio Castellotti
Tony Brooks
Juan-Pablo Montoya
Denny Hulme
Jody Scheckter
Jaques Villeneuve
