“Movember treated me well this year. Only took 24 years to grow.”
We at F1BEARDWATCH suspect that Daniel used Movember merely as an excuse to not shave for ages - his mo’ being much less impressive than the rest of his chin fur - but we deeply appreciate the before-during-and-after collage, as well as his self-deprecating caption.
(P.S. Top right is our favourite.)
Some debate but Timo says it’s a real beard! I’m impressed for one.
Has he been gone too long to qualify for F1BeardWatch?
We at F1BEARDWATCH meant to remark upon Mr. Glock’s ever developing Proper Beard some time ago, but in all honesty, we have been a bit shit lately. Timo’s Teutonic t…facial hair absolutely deserves a spot here (and we also think there must have been something in the West German water back in the day).

Speaking of fuzz gravitating together…
By the way, we must applaud Sebastian on what is easily his strongest beard so far. A little bottom heavy, but we can’t fault the effort.
When Jenson’s drivers’ parade car failed in Austin, his beard went into action. To preserve the dignity of its host (and get said host back to the paddock in good time), it helped him gravitate towards another fuzz-bearer. They’re stronger in packs, you know.
F1BEARDWATCH would also like to add that it is pleased to see Jenson rebelling so emphatically against our nemesis Gillette.
Struggling folk musician Rob Smedley presented the Team Identity award at the F1 in Schools award ceremony last night. Of course, the beard took centre stage. (Watch his appearance here.)
Rubens Barrichello gets his stock car and his family in on Novembro Azul (Movember in Brazil) with some ‘tache fakery.
We at F1BEARDWATCH are not in the habit of reporting on the follicular activities of the feeder series - mainly because the drivers are generally unable to produce more than the faintest of bumfluff - but we simply must make an exception for GP3’s Rob Cregan, seen here in Abu Dhabi showing off a most impressive beard.
(HT to @kateafan for the tip!)
Rob Smedley’s conversion to a folk musician sadly didn’t get him the coveted John Lewis Christmas ad spot.
(For the record, he would’ve done a heartbreaking, Boro-accented, acoustic cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Glory Days” over the story of a forgotten scarf.)
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is upon us! No, not Christmas, silly. It’s Movember, the follicular fundraising juggernaut with an emphasis on men’s health and facial furniture. This year
McLaren MocLaren and GP3 team Koiranen GP Moiranen GP have embraced the ‘tache with these fine, if fake, stickered efforts. (As we all know, cars cannot grow hair, facial or otherwise, so we’ll let them off. Also, it’s for charideeeeeeee!)
Dear Team Ferrari, this beard/moustache competition is going too far…….
Looks like the larval form of Mothra fell asleep on his face in Suzuka and hitched a ride all the way to Noida.
Sergio Pérez seen here in India at the mercy of F1BEARDWATCH’s nemesis Gillette. While we’re not certain if Checo would have preferred to keep his low-slung stubble, we do believe Bollywood stars Aditi Rao Hydari and Neha Dhupia deserve better than to be window dressing at a sponsor event.
Unless Checo’s face fuzz is the source of all his strength, and his arms have been rendered limp and useless by the application of shaving foam.
Damn you, Gillette. Damn you.
