Were you think­ing about Fer­rari when you chose num­ber 27?


Eero Hurmer­inta, Fin­land

No I was not! F1R: Well, that num­ber is tra­di­tion­ally as­so­ci­ated with Fer­rari – Gilles Vil­leneuve used it, among oth­ers. NH: To be hon­est, had I known all of this his­tory stuff with Fer­rari, I wouldn’t have cho­sen that num­ber. I re­ally wouldn’t. I’m not good with the his­tory. Clearly.

We weren’t given much time to select our num­bers. It was pretty much one night. I couldn’t come up with a num­ber, and some­body said ‘just take your birth­day date’. It’s 19 Au­gust, 19 and 8 is 27, so I said ‘Okay, I’ll take it.’ And that’s the story of that.
