F2 starts:

3 (1972)

Full name is Lian de Abreu Duarte. A schoolboy friend of the Fittipaldi's who went with Wilson to support him, and ended up racing. Has stopped and started his career continually since then, but is now retired from competitive racing, but still likes to do the odd historic race. His career may've taken a different path, as he was planning a full European F3 and F2 assault in 1970, but his father's death meant more business commitments and this led to him retiring for the first time in 1975. Still involved with the family vegetable oil manufacturing business.
