"My first choice was number 4, but 10 was the number i had when i made my F1 debut with Toyota"
Marcus Ericsson - 9
"It’s simple, i like this number"
Sebastian Vettel - 1
Michael Schumacher and Nigel Mansell were champions with number 5, but i choose it because i carried it successfully with karts, and when i won my first F1 title in 2010. But as reigning champion i will have to settle with #1

It was my first number in karting and i am also a big fan of Nascar legend, Dale Earnhardt
Nico Rosberg - 6
My father won the title with number 6

Romain Grosjean - 8
My wife was born on 8 December, we started dating in 2008 and my son is the 8th wonder of the world
Sergio Perez - 11
Ever since i was a kid, i always wore the 11 in karting. Actually my email has 11 in it as well. A lot of things have to do with 11, so i identified myself with that number.
Pastor Maldonado - 13
i like number 13, everybody was surprised by that, because nobody used it before. In Venezuela, it’s not an unlucky number.
Fernando Alonso - 14
It has been my lucky number since 1996. I was 14 on 14 July, driving kart number 14 - and i won the world championship.
