I needed to know about Q8. Here's the answer courtesy of McLaren.com:
In his formative years Jody Scheckter was as wild and unrestrained behind the wheel as he was brilliantly talented. The curly-haired South African was quickly afforded the nickname ‘Fletcher’ after the baby seagull in the book Jonathan Livingstone Seagull, who tried to fly when he was too young and kept on crashing into the cliff face.
