Need help buying your next car? Click www.carwow.co.uk/-help-me-carwow and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
F1 drivers are lucky enough to drive some of the fastest cars in the world as their job.
But have you ever wondered what some of the greatest F1 drivers started off with, before they got a chance to sit in an F1 cockpit (unless you're Max Verstappen, of course)? Well, we’ve done our research, and we’ve pulled together a list of some of the greatest (and weirdest!) first cars F1 drivers got their hands on!
From Clios to Mustangs & MINIs, this list has got it all! The question is, did you have the same first car as some of these F1 greats? Let us know in the comments!

There's a special, perfected version of the Lada Riva. It's called the Lada Riva Turbo, and it has functioning air conditioning, thus making it perfect. My grandpa used to drive one in his later years. Can your fancy RS6 make you feel like you're steering a boat when cornering Mat? Didn't think so.

Fun fact: The Lada Riva was sold in Sweden, the thing is, “Lada” means Barn in Swedish and “Riva” means Demolish, SO ONCE UPON A TIME YOU COULD BUY A CAR KNOWN AS “BARN DEMOLISH” in Sweden.....

This reminds me of the joke about Temperatures in Finland: +10 degrees Celsius: Inhabitants of Helsinki turn off the heating. +5 degrees Celsius: Finns take a sunbath if the Sun rises over the horizon. +2 degrees Celsius: Italian cars don't start running. +0 degrees Celsius: Water freezes. -1 degrees Celsius: Breath becomes visible. Time to plan a trip to the Mediterranean Sea. Finns eat ice cream and have a cold beer. -4 degrees Celsius: The cat wants under the bed cover. -10 degrees Celsius: Time to plan an Africa trip. Finns go swimming. -12 degrees Celsius: Too cold for snowfall. -15 degrees Celsius: British cars don't start running. -18 degrees Celsius: Landlords in Helsinki turn on the heating. -20 degrees Celsius: Breath becomes hearable. -22 degrees Celsius: French cars don't start running. Too cold for skating. -23 degrees Celsius: Politicians publicly worry about the homeless. -24 degrees Celsius: Japanese cars don't start running. -26 degrees Celsius: Breath can be cut into construction material for an igloo. -29 degrees Celsius: The cat wants under the pajama. -30 degrees Celsius: German cards don't start running. Finns curse, kick the tires and start their Lada. -31 degrees Celsius: Too cold for kissing, lips would freeze together. The Finnish national soccer team starts the spring training season. -35 degrees Celsius: Time to plan a two weeks hot bath. -39 degrees Celsius: Mercury freezes. Too cold for thinking. Finns close the top shirt button. -40 degrees Celsius: The car wants under the bed cover. Finns wear a sweater. -44 degrees Celsius: My colleague Mr. Smith considers closing the office window. -45 degrees Celsius: Finns close the bathroom window. -50 degrees Celsius: Sea lions leave the North Pole. Finns switch from gloves to mittens. -70 degrees Celsius: Ice bears leave the North Pole. The University of Rovaniemi plans a skiing hike. -75 degrees Celsius: Santa Claus leaves the North Pole. Finns put the ear flaps down. -115 degrees Celsius: Alcohol freezes. Finns are angry. -272 degrees Celsius: Helium freezes. -273.15 degrees Celsius: Absolute Zero point. Elementary particles stop moving. Finns admit: Yes, it's a little cold. Hand me a vodka ice cube!

Make a drug race of Lada Riva and Yugo Skala. That would be blast. And also call a Yiannimize to drive one of cars.

@Danilo Živanović what is nacism? Do you mean Nazism? Are you arguing that this example is some form of četnik/ustaše situation? In any case this is an argument for another time and place, people came here to learn about cars not history and racism. Have a nice day and good luck with the future. 😁👍

@Danilo Živanović other than avoiding my question, I would then still like to ask you, if a person of Serbian ethnicity refuses to give a job to a person because of their Croatian ethnicity, this is not racism to you? This is an acceptable practice? Similarly, if someone says that anyone who speaks German should be imprisoned that also is not discrimination and racism to you?
Danilo Živanović
Danilo Živanović 9 ימים לפני
@A Newly Croats and Serbs are the same nation divided by others, so that's not really racism but more like mutual quarrel. They speak Serbo-Croatian language, so they are the brothers.

Ayrton Senna's first car was not that jeep, but a Ford Corcel II (somewhat similar to Ford Cortina mk.4) with 90 horsepower, which was soon replaced by its wagon version of the same car as it was considered more spacious to carry your kart.
