Stirling Moss had a younger sister, Pat Moss (later known as Pat Moss-Carlsson after she married Erik Carlsson, the rally driver).  Pat was a very successful rally driver in her own right, although it is hard to compare her achievements with Stirling's since F1 and rallying require such different skills.

I think Graham (one start -1952) and Peter (10 starts 1950-1954) Whitehead were brothers - but I may be wrong. Peter was the older of the two.

Jacques Villeneuve Snr had three DNS to his name - so never actually started a World Championship Grand Prix.

Dick and Jim Rathamn both raced the Indy 500 when it was part of the World Championships in the 50's

I think I read somewhere the Whiteheads were half-brothers but given how badly we are struggling I think they should count.

Did Alain and Michel Ferté ever start an F1 race?  They were very successful in F2 around the time of pre-qualifying in F1 so there is a chance that they tried to race something.

Can't find a record of either of the Ferte brothers in F1 - they were both in F2 and then F3000 and previously they had both won the French F3 Championship.

If we are resorting to 'digging them out' - thanks johnbull! - lets go back to before the term 'Grand Prix' was coined and races were city to city events:

Marcel and Louis Renault both raced from the late 1890s!
Marcel winning the 1902 Paris - Vienna race and meeting his death during the 1903 Paris - Madrid rally. The Paris-Madrid Rally being infamous for the number of deaths (drivers, mecahics and spectators) that it was stopped before it reached the Spanish border.
