All-time greatest race driver nose:
Jochen Rindt (tough, no-nonsense, aerodynamic)
All-time greatest race driver name:
Tazio Nuvolari (to my ear anyway it sounds like not just a quick driver, but an artist on road). Honorable mention: American road racer Swede Savage.
All-time worst race driver name:
All-time greatest race driver hair:
All-time greatest race driver facial hair:
Graham Hill. Honorable mention: Emerson Fittipaldi's mutton chops.
All-time worst race driver facial hair:
Harald Ertl. Honorable mention: Emerson Fittipaldi's mutton chops.
All-time greatest race driver victory celebrant:
Rubens Barrichello (laughing, crying, dancing, pantomime... always entertaining)
All-time greatest race driver helmet design:
Jackie Stewart's. Simple, tasteful, instantly recognizable. Everything today's helmets lack.
All-time greatest race car decorative element:
All-time greatest race car innovation:
rear view mirror (something today's designers need to pay more attention to.
All-time greatest race car color:
All-time greatest race driver lifestyle:
James Hunt, of course. Unlike Kimi, he seemed to enjoy himself at the race track as well (pre-race vomiting notwithstanding)
All-time greatest race driver accent:
Scottish (This is probably just a reflection of my age. As I grew up, The Man was Jackie Stewart. Both as a driver and broadcaster. Perhaps for younger fans today it's German).
All-time greatest race track corner name:
Parabolica (to my non-Italian speaking ear it sounds fast and treacherous)
