Six degrees of separation

Post by cformula1 » 24 Dec 2009, 02:19

Using the theory of six degrees of separation I was curious as to how many degrees we are from knowing an F1 driver or personality.

I'll start:

Me>(have met)Grant Denyer>(has worked with)Mark Beretta>(has interviewed) Michael Schumacher (3 degrees)
Me>(have met)Grant Denyer>(has worked with)Neil Crompton>(has commentated with) Murray Walker (3 degrees)
And, thus, I am only 4 degrees from most F1 drivers and personalities :D

Becuase Murray and Michael (both 3 degrees away), combined, know most of the people in the F1 paddock, and thus they are one degree further away from me.

EDIT: Me> Grant Denyer> Danii Minogue> Jacques Villeneuve.
