The 'tail number' of James Hunt's plane is G-IFTE or 'Gifted'.
Twenty five drivers start every season in Formula One, and each year two of us die. What kind of person does a job like this? Not normal men, for sure. Rebels, lunatics, dreamers. People who are that desperate to make a mark, and are prepared to die...
In the movie, the public scoreboards at the races are depicted as showing abbreviated versions of the drivers' names. This has rarely, if ever been done, in 1976 or even now. The scoreboards at automobile races normally identify the cars by the car number, not the driver's name. Presumably the movie's producers would not expect the audience to remember that Car #1 = Lauda, Car #11 = Hunt, etc.
