Eddie Jordan


If you are a Formula One/Grand Prix fan (which I am) you'll know who this man is and if you are not you'll be saying 'Why is Jilly showing us this slightly blurry photo?'

On the night of the Jean-Michel Jarre concert, he was dining at the same restaurant as me - the Quai des Artistes, on the edge of Port Hercule and he kindly let me take his photo.

Eddie Jordan, originally a driver, later founded the Jordan racing team and was the first to employ Michael Schumacher. Now he is best known as a pundit, who always says it like it is - which I love - for BBC 1's excellent coverage of Formula One alongside David Coulthard and Jake Humphrey. He's also crazy about music and plays in a band called 'Eddie and the Robbers.'

You can read his complete bio by clicking on the Eddie Jordan website.

Thanks for the photo, Eddie.

Great photo but that's the Puma 'puma' on the belt buckle I think.

Ah, thanks Rob. It didn't look quite right for the prancing horse...

For anyone reading the comments, I removed the sentence where I wondered if Eddie was wearing a belt buckle with the Ferrari symbol on it. As Rob pointed out, it's the Puma logo.

Looks like a friendly guy, too. The shirt certainly indicates that he is in the flower of manhood!

Love that shirt!

Amazing who you can sometimes bump into. I like the shirt, but not sure if I would be brave enough to wear it though!
