    Henry XIII's codpiece.
    In my view, one of the most (and there have been several) undeserving Ferrari 'number twos', deliberately chosen to back up a superior driver.

    Surely those things won't come back into fashion in 200 years. Good to know that f1 will still be around then.

    People seem to forget that Hamilton would have had his 7 world championships already had not for the 2007 McLaren screw ups with he and Alonso, giving Kimi the title (and that was his 1st season), then 2016, with Mercedes screw-ups with reliability on his car and Rosberg playing a little dirty in qualifying.

    I have to give a shout to Emerson Fitipaldi, at the time the youngest F1 WDC, did it again 2 years later, then when he could've joined pretty much any team on the grid, signed for his brothers Brazilian F1 startup.

    Arguably an early Alonso. Could have done far better if he made better career choices.

    yeah, kind of, though the motivation was the polar opposite, Alonso made his choices to chase titles, whereas Fitipaldi went for family/national loyalty
