Happy Birthday Eddie Irvine!

POD Eddie Irvine

The feisty Northern Irishman turns 50 on this day. Irvine's reputation as an enfant terrible did not prevent him from being pretty good at turning a wheel in anger. Indeed, he nearly won the 1999 world title against McLaren’s Mika Hakkinen after Ferrari team-mate and leader Michael Schumacher was sidelined for several months with a broken leg.
