James Hunt's famous racing suit badge The late 1976 World Champion James Hunt famously used to wear an embroidered badge on his racing suit which read: ‘Sex – Breakfast of Champions’, and it would seem that one of the grid’s current drivers subscribes to that theory as well!

Felipe Massa has admitted to a slightly racy ritual on the eve of ever Grand Prix: he has sex with his wife Raffaela!

The Ferrari driver admitted the ritual in an interview with Corriere dello Sport.

“On the Saturday night before the race I always have sex, even though I know it doesn’t make me faster!” he quipped.

Massa is yet to stand atop the F1 podium since the season-ending 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix.
