hmm not sure, DC is 35 tomorrow but I would have thought that Aguri and J Alesi were older than that ?

Maybe their girl friends are the same age LOL

Alright, hint no. 2:
The same age for all six drivers is of the essence.

Well it's not the age at which they started motorsport, dates off the top of my head (not sure about Hulme or Jones - bit old skool for me):

Alan Jones born 1946, started racing during 1975 - age 29
Aguri Suzuki born 1960, started racing during 1988 - age 28
David Coulthard born 1971, started racing during 1994 - age 23
Denny Hulme born 1936, started racing during 1965 - age 29
Jean Alesi born 1964, started racing during 1989 - age 25
Ukyo Katayama born 1963, started racing during 1992 - age 29

But I bet you're going to tell me they were all born on a Sunday, or something as ridiculous?
