The most notable among these are seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher,[2] 2004 Monaco Grand Prix winner Jarno Trulli and multiple podium finisher Nick Heidfeld. Eight-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen and 2005 DTM champion Gary Paffett also won the series early in their respective careers.
