4 6 & 9. i didnt understand it even with the answer
4) Looking for Jim? - James Hunt.

A shortened version of James is Jim like Bob is for Robert.

"Looking for" is hunting (Hunt).

6) Part Pernod Anise and part blush coloured wine? - Ricardo Rosset.

Pernod Anise is a drink sold under the brand name Ricard

A blush coloured wine is Rose

Ricard Rose = Ricardo Rosset

9) A type of salt spins up an engine for his boy? Peter Revson

A type of salt = Salt Peter which is another name for Potassium Nitrate.

Spins an engine = You rev an engine when it spins.

His boy = your boy is your son

Peter + Rev + Son = Peter Revson
