Here is a quick list of the numbers drivers have chosen for the 2014 season and onward. Of coarse the #1 goes to the world champion.

Some drivers like #14 Alonso and Hamilton #44 went to back to their Karting numbers. #77 Bottas on the other hand went the marketing way so he could combine his name and number in BO77AS, which is kind of cool, but could also back fire (Bo-As). #13 Maldonado went the bad luck way or it just might be an additional warning by the FIA to other pilots when engaging him in the circuit. While #22 Button, chose his number as it was the one he had when he won his Championship with Brawn, #7 Raikkonen went the OhSoFinnishWay and simply chose his number because it was the one he had last season. For the details on driver logic and when the number last appeared on the grid head on over to F1 Fanatik.UK
