Design: James Hunt’s 1976 helmet (+extra)

ArtFormula 1

James Hunt will always be seen as the “bad boy” of Formula 1. Not only was he famous for his ‘all or nothing’ attitude on track, his off-track escapades might even be better remembered. Hunt entered F1 in the 1973 season for Hesketh, scoring two podiums in his first season (the first being a third place in my country, the Netherlands!). He took his first victory in 1975 (again in the Netherlands) which earned him a promotion to the McLaren team. During the 1976 season, he had a legendary run for the title battling Niki Lauda, which was ultimately decided in Hunt’s favor. I can recommend the movie ‘Rush‘ if you are interested in his story, available on Netflix. After two more fruitless seasons with McLaren, Hunt made the transition to Wolf Racing but retired halfway through the season. He became Murray Walker’s co-commentator for British broadcasting, but passed away way to early in 1993 at the age of just 45.
