Clue 4 - Denis Jenkinson said of this driver "a very warm and uncomplicated man who doesn't rely on passion or inspiration. Nor does he indulge in showmanship or bullsh#t. He is capable of a level of mental discipline beyond the comprehension of most people"
I've just had a thought. It's not Michael Schumacher is it?
I noticed with one of the clues you said European with Armenian decent instead of British with armenian decent. I know Schuey lives in Switzerland and honours from the queen aren't restricted to British citizens all though they are honoury abroad.
