He has an opinion on everything

AdvantagesLong time in f1

DisadvantagesNot very good in qualifying

"Eddie Irvine has been driving in formula 1 since 1993, he has been driving longer than almost any other driver currently in f1. At 36 years of age he is one of the oldest too. The highlight of his career was when he drove for Ferrari in 1998 and 1999 with Micheal Schumacher as his team mate. He has had 4 wins in his career, all in 1999. These days his results are more mediocre. He hasn't managed to finish very many races this season. When he has ..." Read review

Personality at last

AdvantagesBritsh (well sort of) Personality

DisadvantagesEgo larger than skill

"...not fit the standard mold. Eddie Irvine is more like an old fashioned driver, one who races for the enjoyment of the sport, rather than the money. He knows how to enjoy himself, but can still drive well. He has a big mouth and has made himself some enemies, but at least he says what he thinks, you can respect that in a driver. I don't think he will ever be world champion, but he should consistently make the middle of the field if he can get a good ..." Read review

One of lifes characters

AdvantagesHis outspoken, live fast die young attitude

DisadvantagesPlayboy lifestyle leads to conflict with his team

"Eddie has been a favourite of mine ever since I saw him cause a 3 car pile up not long into his formula one career. Unlike most of the corporate clowns in formula one Eddie Irvine is one of lifes true characters. Ok, so he might be a true international playboy who changes his supermodel girlfriends as often as his clothes but he never hides the fact. Eddie enjoys the trappings that his status brings and isn't afraid to enjoy them. Unfortunatley all ..." Read review

AdvantagesA great man

DisadvantagesA bad car

"Eddie Irvine is one of the good guys,one of the few Formula One drivers to have a genuine personality and an ability to drive to a very high standard.The man who was cruely looked down upon by Ferrari for commiting the sin of almost winning the Championship instead of golden boy Michael Schumacher,well if Schumacher was such an excellent driver he would never have had the crash that broke his leg would he ? Things have not been going well for Jaguar/Irvine ..." Read review
