Who is Your Favorite Co-Driver?

July 19, 2013

fav_co_driverThe Alley asked a number of ALMS drivers and a few team principals about their own style, influences, all-time favorite drivers and their ultimate co-driver. Here is what we found for What’s Your Favorite Co-Driver?

Derrick Walker

  • Danny Sullivan, because if he spun we would just keep going and win.


Jonathan Bomarito

  • Kimi Raikkonen because he is incredibly fast and off track would be entertaining I’m sure.


Oliver Gavin

  • Ayrton Senna or Gilles Villeneuve – although, it would be pretty demoralizing because they would be so fast and you’d think, I can’t do any of that.


Patrick Long

  • Mark Donohue — because of the way he pushed the envelope in everything he did.


Dominik Farnbacher

  • Oh, maybe one race together with James Hunt…just to party after a race would be awesome.


Kuno Wittmer

  • Co-driving with a Le Mans winning countryman like Ron Fellows would have been a trip.


Ryan Dalziel

  • I think to race alongside one of your mentors is always special. I have been lucky to run with Allan McNish.


Antonio Garcia

  • Alain Prost in Formula One.


Tommy Kendall

  • Driving with two legends in Mark Martin and Paul Newman in winning the 1995 Rolex 24 was as close to a dream outing as one can get.


Matteo Malucelli

  • Olivier Beretta!  He’s won 41 times in the ALMS and driven at Le Mans 19 times…what better co-driver could I have?


Chris Dyson

  • I would have loved to have driven with Price Cobb, who’s really one of my great heroes.


Tommy Milner

  • Phil Hill – he was successful in sports cars, Formula One…everything.


Guy Smith

  • I really enjoy driving with Chris Dyson my current co-driver but I have driven with some great drivers such as Tom Kristensen, Dindo Capello, Johnny Herbert and Martin Brundle.
