F1 stars' road cars

So you can impress your mates down the pub with your F1 knowledge and you are totally au fait with who drives which car - but do you actually know what the grand prix gladiators drive every day..?
It is the F1 summer break and news is somewhat thin on the ground at present as all concerned have scampered away for a well-deserved holiday, so to fill the void, we have a slightly different feature for your enjoyment and education. How do you fancy finding out what the grand prix gladiators drive every day on the roads?

Well if you're still reading now, we guess you fancy finding out rather a lot, so without further ado and thanks to information supplied by our friends over at IBN Live, we shall fill you in. Prepare to discover who owns a Maserati Quattroporte, who motors around in a Jeep Grand Cherokee and which classic car enthusiast's garage contains both a Volkswagen Beetle Convertible and a Ford Mustang. Oh yes, and one of them has a van...
