    A thread inspired by a post from F1 Fanatic Live this morning – F1 people in TV adverts.

    Sometimes they’re funny, some they’re weird, sometimes they’re bafflingly pretentious. Let’s see what we can turn up.

    To get started here’s Fernando Alonso wrestling a horse in an attempt to flog watches, which was posted on F1 Fanatic Live this morning (sorry, I forgot who by!):

    I loved the one from 2007 where Alonso and Hamilton were competitive, and Hakkinen popped up, though I can’t remember where t find it.

    Head and Shoulders also have the employ of the last two world champions

    Because I love the terrible, almost racist attempt at a Spanish accent, and how completely unnecessary it is. Why squander a celebrity endorsement by removing their voice?!

    I almost enjoy it even more than…
