Ranking Formula 1's Biggest Playboys, Characters and Jokers

Very soon, one of Formula One's greatest characters will be immortalised in international cinema.

Rush, the Hollywood depiction of the 1976 title battle between James Hunt, a man who barely followed his own rules, and Niki Lauda, then a two-time world champion, will hit cinema screens before the year's end.

And with yesterday being Hunt the Shunt's birthday (he'd have been 66), and the day he won the '76 Dutch Grand Prix, there are more than enough reasons to take a look back at F1's most colourful characters.

Hunt features, naturally, but his epic title rival misses out. Lauda was a sensational driver and phenomenal world champion. But did he light up F1 off-track like Hunt? Not exactly.

Along with the Brit, we take a look at nine other jokers, charmers and playboys who graced (for want of a better word?) the sport.
