Mystery Trouser Competition.

Post by Bob Bull on Thu Apr 03, 2014 6:16 am

Here's a challenge for the eagle eyed enthusiast, can you name the famous foursome in these trousers? All are ex F1 Champions, while behind are two ex F1 drivers, but they would be hard to identify.

Go on, have a crack.

From the tie it looks a BRDC meeting.
If they are world champions, from left to right: Lauda, Button, Mansell, Hill.
I have never seen them in the flesh, but I suspect the first on the left possibly is not Lauda and I would expect Damon to be thinner than the first on the right; the second on the left might be Coulthard and I thought one of them might be Watson. But there you go.

Not bad Regga, considering the task I set you all. You got one right, and one name, but 'the Wrong Trousers'.

They are all British and I reckon with a little bit of thought concerning the standard of dress the first left would be the easiest to name. Very dapper, trouser just 'breaking' right on the shoe. Now who might wear trousers that drag on the ground (far right) certainly not a true gentleman, and one does look a trifle older than the rest.

Then the first on the left must be Stewart, I forgot about him for some reason, I noticed he was older than the others and thought Surtees looks more frail, that's why I went for Lauda knowing it  was wrong.
Not a true gentleman (I beg you pardon?), far right, Our Noige?
Will come back with the others.

L to R: Stewart, Button, Surtees and Mansell.
Surtees must be one of the most underrated drivers ever. I am not particularly versed in the history of the '60s, but from the little I know he was possibly the only guy who was on the same level as Clark, without the backing of Chapman in his pime (and Ford, eventually). If you add what he did on two wheels...

The answer for those whose grasp of famous trousers is sadly lacking, but what about 'Our Nige's'? Must the 'Brummie' look.

Anyone else like to post a puzzler?
