Lammers never got a drive a front-running car and racked up a large number of non-qualifications.
Lammers' first taste of F1 was in 1979, driving for the Shadow team, failing to score a point.

Returning to ATS for 1981, Lammers lasted four races. He joined Theodore midway through 1982, but left the Hong Kong team before the end of the season.
Lammers then made his career in sportcar racing, winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1988 for Jaguar, and also in IndyCar.
