Johnny - The Future

AdvantagesLoyal, Good Humoured, Immensely talented, British

DisadvantagesHis car!!

"I have been a fan of Johnny's since watcing him most weekends in formula ford and F3. The horrific crash and most things that have followed have brought him never ending bad luck. Unusually he seems to be repaid on rare occasions with huge amounts of luck, resulting in Grand Prix wins. He has never had the support, or the car that he deserves and this is why he needs to get out of F1. His decision to race in America is excellent. We just need some ..." Read review

Thanks for coming now on your bike.

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesLots

"What a bungling baffoon this man is. He has never been the same since his big crash in 1988. He should have hung up the gloves and retired many years ago. He can not do anything in that new car. Fair enough, he has clawed 3 wins in his career but anyone can do that. Basically his talents were never realised so If I was Johnny, rather than become a tail end charlie, I would quit. Instead he is going to USA next year to embarass himself over there in ..." Read review

Mr Nice Guy

AdvantagesBritish Bulldog

DisadvantagesWill not win again

"Johnny Herbert is one of the nicest guys in Formula 1 today. He always has a smile on his face and has a great sense of fun. Unfortunately for him he has no luck. Ever since he was with Lotus he has constantly been in team with un-competitive cars (except for a brief spell with Bennetton where he won races as the teammate of Michael Schumacher, but by default). If there is going to be any retirement due to mechanical failure then you can be sure that ..." Read review

Can't fault Johnny Herbert

AdvantagesHard working

DisadvantagesLet down by the car

"A few people have berated Johnny for throwing in the towel as far as F1 is concerned and crossing to ChampCart - certainly inferior to F1, but I think Johnny should be allowed ro go and try and make a name in ChampCart. With the exception of his second spell at Benetton, Johnny has been very unlucky with the drives he has had, and the general underperformance of his teams. It was such a shame that Lotus folded underneath him and that he couldn't have ..." Read review

Gritty Johnny Herbert

AdvantagesUndoubted courage and great driving skills

DisadvantagesBad luck

"Throughout his Formula I career Johnny Herbert has displayed griity,courageous,qualities as a driver. He has,of course,won three grand prix's and but for bad luck might have won several more. It should also be pointed out that Johnny has not driven for the top teams-he has been usually driving either for the middle ranking teams or teams just starting out. This season he has been driving for Jaguar and it has to be admitted he has not done particularly ..." Read review

Poor Johnny

Advantages

Disadvantages

"Johnny is now one of the veterans on the formula one circuit and he is planning to retire at the end of the season unless he is pushed. Sadly for Johnny I can't envisage him picking too many points up this season. Johnny is well liked by everyone in the paddock and shall take away with him some fantastic memories. His poor displays this season have been disappointing for Jaguar having failed to pick up a single point this season. He's never been very ..." Read review

give the man a decent car..

Advantageshonest, fast.

Disadvantagescar is not good enough YET!!

"johnny "the" herbert is probably the most honest F1 driver there is, remember moaning mansell? "oh! the car didn't handle right" or other cobblers that he used to say, johnny herbert is the only driver i've ever heard say "oop's i made a mistake then didn't i!" if given the chance with a car that actually could make the grade (distance and speed)he has got the skill to show just how good he is. the jaguar team is new ( a lot of changes have been made ..."

Johnny Herbert

Advantages

Disadvantages

"Johnny Herbert is constantly being described as ‘the unluckiest driver in F1’ and, as any Formula One fan will know, this does really appear to be true. Virtually every time that Johnny looks like he might score a point or get a podium place, something happens – his car’s engine gives up or he crashes or something happens to prevent him from succeeding. This year, Johnny has been driving for his old Stewart team under the new name, ‘Jaguar.’ Unfortunately, ..." Read review

UNLUCKY

Advantagesgood wins at beneton

Disadvantagesjaguar

" Johnny Herbert is probably the most unlucky F1 driver ever. This season he has had the worst luck of all, and only finished one or two races (if that) and at Jaguar he didn't really perform to his best, although I imagine the car wasn't as good as he'd had hoped. And for the past few seasons Herbert hasn't really done anything, won anything, but, he did do extremely well for Beneton a few years back when I remember he won a couple of Grand Prix ..."

bad luck

Advantages

Disadvantages

"formula one veteran johnny herbert has not had the best of luck, but if there was a sportsman of the year award,johnny would get it every time. if he makes a mistake he will admit to it,unlike everybody else who seems to blame the tyres,engine,track,susension,paint colour,weather or anything else apart from them selves! johnny has progressed through many teams in formula one,and after new luck in the sauber,moved to the jaguar. the car is not one ..."
