James Hunt's Best Friend
James Hunt was Formula 1's first (and only?) real rockstar, fantastic in a race car and, despite being a legnedary ladies man, his best friend was actually his beloved German Shephard named Oscar.
Oscar would often be at the side of James as he went about his regular runs along Marbella's beautiful Costa del Sol beaches, near where he lived several years after he hung up his helmet. According to John Richardson, James' relationship with his pet partner "seemed far closer than any human relationship he ever had. He was completely devoted to that dog." Best friends in other words.
Oscar became a legend in his own right, as he was known to accompany the British race driver to dine at restaurants in London's west end. On one such occasion, Oscar and James famously caught the attention of restaurant patrons when they shared a dish of spinach soufflé, entrecôte de veau and cassis sorbet when the pair dined at Langan's Brassérie in Mayfair.
