Bruno Senna apparently considered a fake name when he entered the world of motor-sport in his teens. Any nephew of a celebrated yet tragically taken champion would go in that direction.
But alas he has decided to stick to his family name, and aims to do his uncle proud in his debut season at Hispania GP. Hopefully the pressure wont overcome him and the quality of his driving wont travel down a hefty decline in the same fashion as recent protege Nelson Piquet Jr.
If you were in a similar predicament then, what would your fake name be ?
You could go for the slightly obvious ‘Max Power’ sound-alike names, or you could go down the immature yet humorous route that more entices an immature twenty-four year old such as myself.
So after trawling through the Internet to find some classic fake names I’ve whittled it down to my top five.
#5: Justin Tyme
You get offered a seat at a team just a few weeks before the new season begins. You don't really know what to do, but you head into the season none the less.
A makeshift talent would appear, amid much speculation at their late entrance, but at the same time amongst a limited amount of pressure.
For a driver in such a position you have nothing to lose, but everything to gain.
#4 : Justin Case
Justin Tyme needs a back up, so meet his substitute Justin Case. Case would be ready to step into Tyme’s shoes the second an injury or lack of performance rejected him from the sport.
The substitute would attempt to adapt to the car and the conditions as quickly as possible. They can try and prove themselves able to gift their team a greater chance of glory or at least provide the equal effects on the competition that their predecessor did.
Failure to do so would leave them constantly on the edge of the sport, only drafted in at the most desperate of times.
#3 : R Sole
We all know R.Kelly right – the singer who makes a beautiful tune, but also is the bad boy of the music world. If you end up in court all the time what else would you expect?
Anyone wanting to continue the antics of Michael Schumacher or Fernando Alonso at their times of controversy would find a fitting name in R.Sole.
Such a name comes with an obvious theme tune ; ‘Bad boys bad boys, what you gonna do, what you gonna do when they come for you?’
Well you’d speed around the track as quickly and as recklessly as possible, forcing anyone off course who gets in your way – that's what !
#2 : Itza Star
Is it a bird, is it a plane ? No its Mr Star just rolling around the track in and effortless fashion. He makes his way through the race with such ease and skill that no-one comes close and he wins every Grand Prix going.
The admiration showered upon him by fans and spectators is overwhelming but handled in a dignified manner.
#1 : Ivor Biggun
Ivor Littlun’s more accomplished big brother. Cue any rude thoughts by those who have a dirty mind.
Ivor Biggun has the best car around, as it whisks its way around the track at lightening speed. He eclipses anyone and everyone around him in his beast of a machine. He is simply unbeatable. Unless that is of course, if his cocky and overly confident attitude doesn't get the better of him and he makes careless mistakes as a result. Just keep yourself grounded there lad!
