This Sunday, July 12, all 20 Formula 1 drivers and their accompanying teams will descend upon the Nürburgring for the Germany Grand Prix and the start of the second half the 2009 season. If you haven't been following F1 lately (or at all), you've been completely missing out. Formula 1 has everything your favorite leagues have: the young gunners slinging rocks at the throne, salary and budget cap debates, spying and cheating, and all the other usual fuckery that comes along with paying young guys millions of dollars to basically have fun.
But that's not all—if you haven't been watching the world's premier automotive racing series, you've been missing out on all the dimes (and the few sixes and sevens) attached to the various drivers. We thought you'd be skeptical, so we compiled 10 of the hottest girlfriends and wives we've seen around the pit this season...
9. ANNA RAFAELA BASSI
GIRLFRIEND OF: Felipe Massa
FUN FACT: She's got a great shoulder for crying on, or we hope so, considering the amount of whining Massa's done the past two years.
8. VIVIAN SIBOLD

FUN FACT: Sibold went to school for interior design. You know, something to pass the time until Nico lets her hire one.
7. HANNA PRATER
