Agabashian. Elio de Angelis I always liked Rene Arnoux just because whenever I thinki of it Murray’s voice pops into my head for some reason Luca Badoer was unfortunate because he got ‘Look how bad you are’ last year Baldi…because well I’m immature. I liked Fabrizio Barbazza He was just in F1 Racing so Zsolt Baumgartner Francious Cevert was just cool. I always liked “Gilles” but the driver became so popular that he didn’t even need a last name for people to recognise him and that’s hard to come across. Pierluigi Martini 23rd June 2010, 20:07 at 8:07 pm #141730 newnhamlea1Member Scott speed is quite memorable, mainly for his complete lack of speed. 23rd June 2010, 20:20 at 8:20 pm #141731 JaggedParticipant The Italian names just seem to roll off the tongue From Andrea de Adamich Michele Alboreto Giovanna Amati Marco Apicella Alberto Ascari Lorenzo Bandini To Nino Vaccarella Luigi Villoresi Alex Zanardi Renzo Zorzi and a whole host in between. 23rd June 2010, 20:21 at 8:21 pm #141732 RatboyKeymaster A couple more: Fred Wacker who did a few races in the 1950’s Desmond Titterington, how fantastically British is that name! 23rd June 2010, 20:39 at 8:39 pm #141733 JaggedParticipant Lol Ratboy, I used to laugh when I was a kid trying to visualize “a mad titter running through the crowd” :-) 23rd June 2010, 20:44 at 8:44 pm #141734 RobRMember I first heard of Desmond Titterington on F1Rejects’ podcast, when they did a “Top 10 British sounding names” feature :D Some of the others I can remember off the top of my head.. Archie Scott-Brown and the best one: Robin Montgomorie-Charrington, haha… 23rd June 2010, 21:34 at 9:34 pm #141735 Ned FlandersParticipant Haha yeah I remember that Rob, there were some great ones there! http://www.f1rejects.com/podcasts/index.html Here’s the link for anyone who’s interested, it’s on the 2006 British GP edition. I’d encourage everyone who hasn’t heard them before to try one of their podcasts, they’re great 23rd June 2010, 21:46 at 9:46 pm #141736 TommyBParticipant “Francious Cevert was just cool.” Agree, quite possibly the coolest name ever. 23rd June 2010, 21:51 at 9:51 pm #141737 RatboyKeymaster Nothing can be quite as unique as: Wolfgang Alexander Albert Eduard Maximilian Reichsgraf Berghe von Trips 23rd June 2010, 21:55 at 9:55 pm #141738 Ned FlandersParticipant I think the most common F1 name is probably Sebastian Hill… or Nico Schumacher 23rd June 2010, 22:25 at 10:25 pm #141739 JaggedParticipant That’s why his friends called him “Taffy” Ratboy. 23rd June 2010, 22:29 at 10:29 pm #141740 RatboyKeymaster Am not surprised Jagged, Bet the worst person in the crowd was the one that shouted “Give us a W” lol 23rd June 2010, 22:58 at 10:58 pm #141741 Ned FlandersParticipant von Trips was nicknamed ‘The Count’ wasn’t he? That’s got me thinking about other driver nicknames. Here’s a few off the top of my head: M Schumacher= Schumi/ The Rainmeister R Schumacher/ Vettel= Baby Schumi Massa= Felipe Baby Fisichella= Fisi Baumgartner= HWNSNBM Hakkinen= The Flying Finn Coulthard= DC Prost= The Professor N Rosberg= Britney Raikkonen= The Iceman Heidfeld= The Beardinator (ok so I made that last one up!) Can anyone think of any others? Author Posts Viewing 15 posts - 1 through 15 (of 37 total) 1 2 3 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
