    Yes.. the most ‘racey’ name.

    In my opinion it has to be Giancarlo Fisichella or Jos Verstappen.

    Another vote for Giancarlo Fisichella.

    I was also a fan of Scott Speed as well as Ricardo Patrese.

    I think Stirling Moss and Jenson Button are great British racing names.

    Fisi is good too (in terms of name, not so much in the sense of driving ability).

    I’m sure someone will remember, someone did a thread along similar lines to this before and there was some British driver from the Fifties with an extravagant double-barreled name like Chuffington-Brown or something, can anyone remember? Or did I dream it?

    Elio de Angelis

    It’s a pity Will Power never made it to F1 though.

    Jonny – your comment reminded me of the 2006 British GP edition of the F1 Rejects podcasts, talking about the top 10 posh British driver names: http://www.f1rejects.com/podcasts/index.html

    10th – Rodney Nuckey

    9th – Horace Gould

    8th – Stuart Lewis-Evans

    7th – Archie Scott Brown

    6th – John Campbell-Jones

    5th – Brian Shawe-Taylor

    4th – John Riseley-Prichard

    3rd – Philip Fotheringham-Parker

    2nd – Desmond Titterington

    1st – Robin Montgomerie-Charrington

    If those aren’t great racing names I don’t know what are :D

    As Zadak onces said…

    Zonta is a really cool racing name.

    Heinz-Harald Frentzen is about as awesome as a driving name gets, it just sounds like he’s going to be really fast.
