Charles Pic

Discussion in 'Formula 1' started by Chris Hempsall, Apr 25, 2012.

  1. Does anyone know why Charles Pic is Number 25?

    Only 24 Drivers
  2. The number 13 is not used in Formula 1. ;)

  3. I didn't know that.

  4. You're welcome. :)
  5. Haha, the funny thing is I knew that because on Friday the 13th the Chinese FP1 was on, and someone mentioned that there was no car number 13 because they think it's bad luck XD

  6. I'm willing to sacrifice myself as a test subject and undertake the colossal job of driving the car number 13. Of course, as this is a very risky job, payment should be adecuate. I'm willing to do it for some bread and a bed. Said bed should have at least 3 legs, although 4 would be welcome.

    But you know, it's a bid of a ridiculous thing. I'm wondering if Kobayashi would be willing to drive the number 4 car.

  7. So has there never been a driver in F1 history to sport the number 13?

    I wonder.

    I'm off to find out

    The teams never use a garage that has number 13 on it either.
    The Silverstone pit garages (both new and old) have no number 13 garages. It goes straight from 12 to 14 :)

    Don't think so. This is why Katayama had number 3 in Tyrrell :)

    Its easily switched. Schumacher has a superstition against even numbers, hence why he's car 7 even though Nico finished ahead of him last season.
  11. He´s also the only guy not having his last name in short letters in races.

    MSC vs HAM for example. Pretty cool but i think the reason was simply because his brother raced as well so to not cause confusion.
    One time they had near equal cars.

    Probably the slowest driver you've ever seen

    It kind of look like he got out of Formula E. I really hope he'll have a seat in Formula 1 for 2015, it would be sad to see him as a 3rd driver again.

    There doesn't appear to be any seats left!
