After a highly successful career as a driver, Ove Andersson moved over to motorsport management and presided over Team Toyota Europe victories in both drivers' and manufacturers' championships. A man with great patience and respect, he was the first truly to get to grips with a Japanese automobile manufacturer, opening the way for Japanese success across the motorsport world. Andersson was a rare figure in motorsport: he was a winner as a driver and as a team principal, yet he had few enemies and kept his feet firmly on the ground.

Perhaps a little too red in the face to merit his famed Iceman moniker, but nevertheless looking pretty chilled. To his right was the really cool one, Lewis Hamilton. The man whose rookie season title aspirations Raikkonen smashed in Brazil last October. As ever, Hamilton seemed completely calm and unfazed. And then, to Raikkonen's left, the former world champion Fernando Alonso, slightly unshaven, looking less chipper than he was this time last year chez McLaren.
