Name that driver

I spotted the Beta sponsorship, and figured it was pre-Arrows so a Surtees driver.

In the list was a certain Italian winner of 1 GP, and a quick google search to see what he looked like confirmed that it's the infamous Vittorio Brambilla!

Well done Muddy, it is indeed the Monza Gorilla - Vittorio Brambilla. Would you care to post another?

Had to think a bit for one - Someone known, but hopefully not instantly recognisable, and without obvious clues on the overalls. Try this one

I have no idea who that is but I can see an Alpha badge on his race suit so I'm going to guess that it's Bruno Giacommeli?

I'm fairly sure I know what Andrea De Cesaris looks like and I know he was an Alpha driver so if it's him I'm going to give myself a good kick in the spuds.

I do believe that to be Patrick Depailler.

BTW, anyone think Brambilla looks like Judd Hirsch of Taxi fame?

He's a former F1 driver who drove for some of the most famous names in F1 during his career and took part in nearly 100 Grand Prix. He didn't have the beard whilst racing though.

Another clue, he is an Italian and he drove for the most famous Italian marque.

A chocolate Hob Nob to Muddy, it is indeed Ivan Capelli; who appears to have moved his hair from the top to the bottom of his head as he's got older.

Ok, here's the next one

I have to admit, I'm struggling with this one, mainly because I get:
