Maybe it's stupid, but I've never realized there was no number 13 car... Why that? (don't say its cus 13 brings bad luck... that can't b the reason...)

Wikipedia already helped me :)

The number 13 has not been used since 1974, before which it was occasionally assigned at the discretion of individual race organizers.

I always knew there was no number 13 and just assumed it was because a lot of people are superstitious and would see it as unlucky, and even say its unfair!

I'm surprised that the STR seats are TBA, I thought Liuzzi and Speed were already confirmed?

Seeing that #1 officially confirmed brings back those feelings of justice being done and karma might actually exist.

Pretty funny how Alonso practically gave the first 4 car's their numbers leaving Ferrari with 5th and 6th....fastest car of 2006, "Magic Alonso" really is an appropriate nick name.

Massa is #1 driver over Raikkonen

Rosberg is #1 driver over Wurz

I think that may be attributed to them being the driver that has already completed a full season with the team, not so much on driver status within the team.

:D

I thought it was the FIA that issued the entry list and the order that drivers appear in the numerical order and not the teams themselves.

I maybe wrong.

Anyone else know anything about how the numbers are issued?????

The numbering is assigned to each team based on the previous season's standings. Each team does have the option of switching which number a driver races under. In '06, Button swapped numbers with Rubens because number '11' was special to Rubens. In '07, Renault had to agree to let Alonso take the '1-2' to McLaren.

This is my understanding, but it may be incorrect..... :eusa_think:

Good point, I forgot about JB & RB swapping numbers earlier this year.

Still did they have to get approval from the FIA or where Honda able to do this themselves??? Because for JB to swap with RB, JB was issued the number 11 in the first place. Thus making the driver already in the team the first number the team as a whole was allocated from the World Championship standings. Do you get my drift???

You confused yet?? :blink:

Oh yes, your favourite driver (recent favourite rather, you didn't love him so much when he wasn't winning) wins so there is a god :rolleyes2:

It is a shame such a technical sport panders to this kind of ridiculous views by doing something as stupid as leaving out the number 13 :wacko:

I agree. The whole '13' superstition got started from the French burning a few Templars a couple hundred years ago. Pretty absurd to carry that over into motorsports.......but I suppose it ads a bit of quirkiness to the sport :eusa_think: Hmmm....the Arrows X-wings added some quirkiness too and they were banned.......forget my idea, quirkiness doesn't play.......

I thought the 1-2 went with the WDC, then the rest were sorted on WCC standings.

im not sure of the details but i do know that at Williams in 2003, Montoya was allowed to choose which number he had, as he had finished higher in the standings than Ralf in 2002. I remember reading an article at the time

I was under the impression that this started from the story of Judas being the 13th man at the table?

I dont have a problem with the nmber 13 and i find it suprising that the FIA do. Coulthard would have been number 13 in 2006 and he would have been number 13 in 2007 if the number featured in F1 races.
