“Fast Eddie Go Go Go”

published 14/09/2001

ProGrit and a real character that F1 Craves

ContraMaybe not always as 100% committed as he could be

Eddie, Born in Newtownards, Northern Ireland, has been a character in the racing world since he first raced in Irish Formula Ford 1600 in 1983. Northern Ireland racer Eddie then graduated 2 years later to teh British Championship in that class. A further two years saw him win the Formula Ford...

ProLong time in f1

ContraNot 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...

“Personality at last”

published 16/07/2000

ProBritsh (well sort of) Personality

ContraEgo larger than skill

In a sport where personalities are few and far between, Jaguar has two drivers who do 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...

ContraStuck with slow pants herbert.

Edd is my modern day hero. He is exactly what I was like about 5 years ago but without the arrogance!!! Woman here, Woman there!!! Woman Everywhere!!! We all like that. Get it while you can. He is a superb racing driver in a team that has a good driver to develop the car for him like Schumacher...

Genial,outgoing, Ulsterman,Eddie Irvine,currently with the Jaguar Formula I team,has also driven for Jordan and Ferrari.Last year he finished second in the driver's championship being pipped for the title in the very last race in Japan by the cool Finn,Mika Hakinen. Eddie amassed 74 championship...

“IRISH GUYS RULE”

published 05/09/2000

Well you either hate this fine Northern Irish superstar or like me you love him to bits. I have to admit I only watch the formula one because it gives me a chance to see this great sporting hero in action. Although he has had a some what disappointing season this year in comparison to last year...

Has Eddie Irvine ever driven a race that can be described as impressive? For someone so openly critical and often antagonistic out of the cockpit, Irvine?s performances on the track are consistently unremarkable. Having considered the above remarks for some time, I can think of only two...

“Fast Eddie.”

published 22/06/2001

ProGreat driver - Great character.

ContraHe does not invite me to his parties.

How can anyone not be drawn to this great character who has the personality that epitomises Formula 1 racing car drivers. This flamboyant playboy leads the true life of a carefree millionaire, living in Monte Carlo and owning a yacht, a helicopter and everything else that you would expect an F1...

“FAST EDDIE!!”

published 21/07/2000

Irvine’s best season by far as he came agonisingly close to winning his first drivers’ title trailing Mika Hakkinen by just two points. The Irishman signalled his championship ambitions when he surprisingly took the opening race of the year, the Australian Grand Prix. It was the British GP at...

“Fast Eddie?”

published 29/07/2000

ProKnows how to have a good time

Contramight be past it????

I am a huge admirer of Eddie Irvine because he is seemingly one of the only drivers out there who knows how to enjoy himself and also manages to get on with the job. Ok, so his results at Jaguar haven't been anything to write home about so far - but we all know that aint down to Eddie himself...

“Edd'in for the dole que”

published 27/02/2001

ProHe used to be good

ContraBut not any more

Jaguars announcement that Pedro de la Rosa will race next year must spell the end for Eddie. Luciano has proved a good driver last year by holding the record for the fastest lap of Silverstone GP circuit in a Jaguar R1 and keeping it all together in Austria when Eddie had a tummy ache...

“Eddie's the man”

published 27/06/2000

Proupfront, has a go, yet to show his best, human

Contraa bit too laid back at times

Being female one of the best things about Eddie is he is just so sexy, but that aside he is just what formula 1 needs, there no longer seems to be any characters in the sport. Most of the other drivers have no personality and are just driving machines. The last "real person" I can think of was...

published 09/09/2000

eddie has moved away from the shadow of micheal schumacher to become the lead driver at the jaguar team. he has put in some decent performances this year,but has failed to finish in the points regularly,which helps explain why jaguar have only 3 points. he will be hoping for a change of fortunes...

ProNone

ContraWhere should I begin?

Why do people think Eddie Irvine is a good driver? To be honest he is terrible. Look at him now in a Jaguar car, he can barely qualify in the top 10. Put Michael Schumacher in the same car and he would be on pole. Remember those times at Ferrari? His average finishing time was 1 minute 15 seconds...

published 15/08/2000

Progreat personality

Contradodgy temperament

Eddie I r v i n e is a funny witty playboy who likes to enjoy the high rolling lifestyle of a grand prix driver. I witnessed him interviewed by Jeremy Clarkson ( another loud mouth famous for driving cars ! ) and he completely humilated him with a mix of calculated boasting and sly insults. This...
