What is it about F1 drivers and the massive sunglasses they wear ?
Kimi seems to not enjoy talking to the press so I assumed that wears them to shut the reporters out but Alonso also wears them too . Is it a sponsor deal or Euro-style thing?

It's not just F1 drivers. NASCAR drivers wear some of the most hideous sunglasses I've ever seen.

Kimi and Alonso are either sponsored by Oakley or just like their stuff. I don't really see the problem, their 2012 style of the Dispatch II Aviator looks nice.

Kimi, Heikki, and Alonso are always wearing Oakley's.
Not sure if they're sponsored by Lotus, but they're always wearing their stuff.
At least Heikki's white Oakleys aren't massive.

I don't watch Nascar so I couldn't comment on the style of sun glasses their drivers wear but .........

those big Oakleys look to be suitable for welding work

you do not have to be sponsored to wear stuff like that. On many occasions companies send out their latest products to celebrities for free, if they like it they wear it and the company gets free advertisement for peanuts.

F1 drivers have more sunglasses than anyone on the planet. Besides Heikki's famous white ones which he wears all the time (tho not lately, and apparently he loses them a lot) I feel like most of the guys wear a new pair of shades every weekend. Sometimes more than one pair per weekend. I always wonder what its like for an F1 driver when it comes time to pack....all your team kit meets you there, but how do you pack all those pairs of sunglasses? 8)
