    I love the way DC says Heidfield, as apposed to Heidfeld.

    Yeah I love that “hug the white line like it’s your favourite granny” line.

    I can’t believe he managed to get this one in when Jerome D’Ambrosio stopped:

    “It’s all turned to custard for D’Ambrosio”. Just quality broadcasting!

    Lets see how many time DC can say something without using the word Balance! It is something he always used as an excuse in his F1 career and seems to have carried over into his TV role!

    “There are some pikeys there at turn 10 putting tarmac down – what do you think of that?”

    I think it was last year where Martin had a bet to use some kind of obscure word in his commentary and he kind of sort of mangled it in.

    Also from last year, “Kobabashi” “Kowasabi”.

    I knew there’d be a site dedicated to them:

    Yeah Ral, think I heard about that bet too. I remember in Spa last year he said “He’s as sharp as a Kumquat fruit. I’m glad I managed to get that word in there somewhere.”

    You get the impression that he writes those classic ones down and hopes they come up over the season. Either that or Mr Brundle is a quick thinking genius.

    Rudderless Russian was epic for me, though I didn’t quite catch when he said it at first.

    Oh, and looking at that website, this one too:

    There are four compounds [of tyre] through the year: hard, medium, soft and supersoft; thats silver, white, yellow and red not a very sensible progression. I think youve gotta think of it as knife, toast, butter and jam as they get softer through the progression of the rubber.

    Now there’s a sensible way of remembering all the tyre compounds!

    I laughed at the tyres one when I first heard it! He does have some great quotes sometimes.

    i loved how he nearly said ‘face full of virgin’ last race (just stopped himself when he realised what he was about to say!)
