Formula 1 Wiki

Esteban Tuero (born April 22, 1978 in Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a motor racing driver who competed in Formula One with the Minardi in 1998. At the age of just 19, Tuero was (at the time) the third youngest driver ever to start a race on his début, after Mike Thackwell and Ricardo Rodríguez (Tuero is now fifth-youngest, now behind Jaime Alguersuari and Fernando Alonso).

He did not score any points in his solitary year of F1. He retired from F1 after a neck injury incurred in the 1998 Japanese Grand Prix after a collision with Toranosuke Takagi halfway through the race damaged a vertrebra in his neck. He has not raced at all in single seaters since, but has competed in the Argentine TC 2000 Championship, a Touring car racing championship for many years.
