The Deerstalker Chronicles
Imagine the following scenario. You’re a Formula 1 driver preparing for Sunday’s race when a Belgian race fan approaches you with a deerstalker in hand. He explains that he’s a Pedro Rodriguez fan and that, because of Pedro’s love of the deerstalker, would you take a photo wearing one in tribute to the Mexican great.
This improbable request is exactly what Luc Ghys asked of many F1 drivers. Even better, many of them took him up on it. According to Luc, only Graham Hill and a hurried Jacky Ickx turned him down. What an incredible collection of photographs. What a marvelous, if idiosyncratic, tribute to Rodriguez. Click over for the complete collection.
