With Fernando Alonso being crowned the 2006 Formula One World Champion yesterday in Sao Paolo, it is only fitting that we present awards for some “alternative” 2006 championships..
Jarno ‘goldilocks’ Trulli, with Fernando Alonso making a late charge with his Ronald McDonald do.
No, not Jacques Villeneuve.. what’s wrong with you man!?
Worst facial hair:
David Couldhard – George Clooney and Richard Gere are distinguished with their grey hair. David, your beard makes you look like a hobo!
Best facial hair:
Max Biaggi (yes, I’m being sarcastic!)
Worst team shirt of the year:
McLaren – A gradient from fluoro red to grey/white results in PINK! Pink is not the new black!! Please go back to black!
Best team shirt of the year:
McLaren – The black fireproof t-shirts the drivers wore were great. Now how about giving them a black race suit now and then?
Juan Pablo Montoya for joining McLaren this year.
Sam Michael for becoming the Technical Director of Williams at the end of last year.
Mark Webber for joining Williams instead of Renault this year.
Jenson Button for being forced to stay at BAR this year.
Kimi Raikkonen for every reason you can imagine.. Along with Giancarlo Fisichella for every other reason you can imagine!
McLaren – for more DNFs in the last 10 laps of a race than all other teams put together.
Honestly, none spring to mind as this is an area Ferrari have completely dominated until this year.. I guess we’ll give it to them again for their gift ‘win’ at Indianapolis!
