    So- they’ve all had a chance to select their lifetime drivers numbers.

    Loving this quote:

    The famously unemotional Raikkonen said he picked seven because “it’s the number I already had last year and I saw no reason to change it”.

    And nobody chose 69 🙄

    Mansell held onto 5 even when he was world champ.

    Raikkonen is awesome, some of the best quotes come from him.

    I baggsied 69 for when I become an f1 driver so that is why nobody took it 😉

    27 and 28 should be reserved for Ferraris and they should be back where they belong – 3rd row of the grid, a few podiums and the odd win.
    I used to like them back then

    Red one don’t forget as that’s why he wanted to keep it.

    I tend to go for No.6, that way i can randomly shout “i am not a number, i am a free man” which amuses me 🙂

    [pedant]Um, no he didn’t?[/pedant]

    (He was in IndyCars when he was world champ n’est-ce pas? ie. 1993?)

    Mansell came back to F1 for a few odd races for Williams and (I think) McLaren a year or two after Indycar, and used red 5 IIRC

    Edit: but yeah he was off in the US when he was the reigning champ

    Edit 2: after a quick Google…he used red 5 in Indy car and red 2 in his guest appearances for Williams after, but not either with McLaren

    I really want you to be riding a penny farthing when you say that. With an awning.

    I find the numbers hard to spot on modern f1 cars. They used to be bold as brass on the nose and sides.

    Speaking of Mansell, I briefly saw him at Le Mans a few years back and his car was sporting Red 5 there too. I say briefly, as he was only in the race for 20 minutes before he became one with the crash barriers.

    I bet it was the crash barriers fault

    I always liked the reason Nicky Hayden rides with 69. It reads the same even if the bike is upside down

    27 and 28 should be reserved for Ferraris and they should be back where they belong – 3rd row of the grid, a few podiums and the odd win.
    I used to like them back them

    You mean like this season!?
