OUR 12 GREATEST UNDERDOGS
A modern legend of the sport, but back in 2008 when he was driving for the Toro Rosso team with whom podiums were deemed unrealistic, he went on to win the Italian GP on merit from pole position.
After winning the Championship in 1996, Hill then found himself in a back marker Arrows car for 1997. This didn’t prevent him nearly winning a race though. It was only a minor mechanical failure that cruelly dropped him to 2nd place in Hungary.
He won many races for McLaren, but in 2011, the eventful Canadian GP saw him running in a podium position before dropping to the back and then fighting and taking the win in the final laps.
He is regarded as one of the greatest drivers in the history. In 1993, whilst he was driving an underperforming McLaren, he beat everyone, achieving one of the most celebrated laps ever raced.
Hesketh – a team famous foremost for partying. At the Dutch GP though, Hunt took this small team to victory, beating the mighty combination of Lauda and Ferrari.
He had booked an early flight home, before the race was scheduled to finish, because his Ferrari wasn’t expected to last the distance. Instead, miraculously, Nigel won. He subsequently booked a new flight home.
Senna features again for his performance in Monaco 1984. In a Toleman, in the rain, he made himself known, and arguably, could and should have won the race before it was controversially ended prematurely.
Rosberg is our underdog for August, as although he had many amazing races in 1982, he won the Championship despite only having taken victory once during the season.
This was Giancarlo’s first win at Jordan’s 200th race. He only received the trophy at the following race due to confusion over the finishing order after a crash forced the race to end 15 laps early.
Gilles won the 1981 Spanish GP with a masterpiece of tactical racing giving him an unexpected but well-earned victory.
Sir Stirling Moss
Sir Stirling Moss is one of the most famous underdogs in the history of Grand Prix racing and is regarded as the greatest driver to never win a World Championship.
Jean Alesi was a hotly tipped young driver. He could have gone to Williams but instead chose Ferrari. Unfortunately, this turned out to be an unwise move. However, in Canada 1995, on his birthday, he took his one and only win.
