Lewis Hamilton | Pagani Zonda

Lewis Hamilton spent his entire career from a young age with McLaren. In 2007 he hit the ground running in his rookie season by finishing second and just one point behind Kimi Raikkonen. In 2008 he became World Champion and the media lapped him up, especially with his on/off relationship with ex Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger.

Lewis Hamilton is renowned for his style and it shows with this carbon and purple Zonda. Considered by many as the true supercar for its outrageous looks and massive horsepower, the Zonda looks like something that belongs on a Hollywood film set. The colors go together very well and I love those deep dish rims.

Kimi Raikkonen | Ferrari Enzo

Ex Ferrari and 2007 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen took time off to spend a few seasons rally driving and dabbling in NASCAR. In 2011 he returned in style with Lotus. Still showing he had the skills, the Flying Finn is set to partner Alonso and drive for Ferrari again in 2014.

Being Scandinavian, Kimi has an inherent love of motor sport. Although his first car was a Lada, he told Metro UK: “I’ve got some bikes, probably ten in total. Most of them are motocross bikes. I have some cars including a Ferrari Enzo – that’s my only Ferrari – and skidoos, stuff like that. I have a Hummer and a few Cadillacs including an Escalade pick-up.”

He even owns a 1974 Stingray once owned by Sharon Stone. Kimi scores high here because, despite being partially obscured by a killer chopper, the Enzo is a design and technological masterpiece.

David Coulthard | Mercedes 280 SL

David Coulthard is a former McLaren and Red Bull Racing driver from Scotland. He is now a pundit for SKY TV, his deep knowledge and understanding of the sport an important and welcoming reason to tune in.

The piece of automotive glory pictured above is Coulthard’s Mercedes-Benz 280 SL. Introduced in 1967, this stunning classic still turns heads today, even in his homeland that is the opulent Monaco.

Mark Webber | Porsche GT3 RS 4.0

Although Mark Webber raced his last F1 race with Red Bull Racing in Brazil this season, he is going on to race in the Porsche Cup series. This is a good thing as Webber has Porsches in his collection.

This GT3 RS 4.0 is one of 600 grass roots racers and is best suited for a track session, perhaps when Webber has something to get out of his system. As for his daily driver, this Aussie has the luxury of a very quick white 612-bhp GT2 RS.

Nico Rosberg | Mercedes C63 AMG

Son of the legendary Keke Rosberg, Nico is a German driver for Mercedes. Showing promise throughout his early years by winning the 2005 GP2 series, Rosberg continued to progress through the Williams F1 team until 2010. He then joined Mercedes and became teammates with the great Michael Schumacher who made a comeback after retiring from Ferrari in 2006.

Rosberg takes advantage of his role and owns a Mercedes C63 AMG. He has also owned a silver version and has on more than one occasion taken race prepared models around the track.

Fernando Alonso | Maserati GranCabrio

Fernando Alonso will make a few more appearances on here as he has a few beauties tucked away in his garage. This Spanish champion won both of his titles with Renault, and after a brief stint with McLaren in 2009 and falling out with Lewis Hamilton, he is now very much a part of Scuderia Ferrari.

This is one of Alonso’s latest orders, a stunning Maserati GranCabrio. Pretty much standard but you can’t really go wrong with a Maser.

Felipe Massa | Ferrari 599

Felipe Massa is a Brazilian Formula 1 driver who up until the end of this season is best known for his role as a driver for Scuderia Ferrari. In 2008, having won the Brazilian GP and final round of the season, he just needed Lewis Hamilton to finish 6th or less to win the World Championship by a single point. It was raining hard and Hamilton dropped down the field and scrambled to get back. Massa’s family were caught on film prematurely and embarrassingly celebrating as Hamilton just managed to take fifth on the final corner of the race.

Massa is set to drive for Williams in 2014 and will be glad to drive for himself and not play second fiddle to the likes of his former teammates, Michael Schumacher, Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso.

Driving for the most famous name in racing obviously has its benefits. Massa owns this race spec 599 and another standard 599 as a daily driver.

Jenson Button | Mercedes C63 AMG DR520 Wagon

2009 World Champion Jenson Button didn’t see much success throughout most of his career with Honda Racing. In 2008 the Japanese team were about to fold until they were bailed out by F1 brain Ross Brawn at the last minute. Brawn GP was born, a team whose cars dominated the entire season, whereupon Button claimed the world championship title.

Now with McLaren, Jenson drives this limited edition Mercedes Wagon. I think powerful wagons are super cool, especially this subtle flat paint finish. It makes for one hell of a sleeper, and for that reason, I’ll score it accordingly.

Adrian Sutil | Porsche 911 Turbo


Force India driver, Adrian Sutil is a German with a penchant for German technology. Despite not being in the fastest car on the grid, Sutil has proved to be a very fast driver, however, consistency and a tendency to be at the wrong end of a stewards enquiry has let him down. When he’s not lapping in a Force India, Sutil loves taking his Techart Porsche 911 Turbo out for a thrashing. This is one of a handful of Porsches he currently owns.
