During the next 6 years, many famous drivers sat behind the wheel of AGS single-seaters in the F1 World Championships and repeatedly scored points in the ‘Drivers’ and ‘Constructors’ classifications: PIRONI, CAPELLI, FABRE, MORENO, STREIFF, TARQUINI, WINKELOCK, DALMAS...

Francois Hesnault...jeez, he was bad. I can't remember if he has an entry on the site, if not then he should have!!
