James Hunt was known for his excessive lifestyle and eccentricity:
with his distinctive blond mane of hair, the tall chain smoker and self-confessed excessive drinker, who had the quirk of always cutting open his shoes at the tips, could never be overlooked in the paddock thanks to the groupies surrounding him and was considered “last sore thumb” (quote from his friend Niki Lauda) of Formula 1.

Aided by his lifestyle and appearance, he had the aura of “pop icon” or “Formula 1 rock star” in the 1970s.





Formula One (also Formula 1 or F1) is the highest class of single-seat auto racing that is sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA).
