Lewis Hamilton has recently had an interview ( http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/84512 ) in which he said the following:
“If I am able to keep my head and stay focussed, as this is where you really have to knuckle and grind, to brush it down to the bone, then this is where you can make a difference.”
Now, I didn’t think heard the phrase “brush it down to the bone” before, so I googled it. Turns out, he’s the ONLY person every to be recorded by google using this phrase. He’s invented it! He’s like Shakespeare…
“knuckle and grind” is also kinda new, as I can’t find anyone else saying that in a similar context..
Perhaps he meant “knuckle down” and “grind it to the bone?”
Are there any other phrases that have been made up by F1 drivers? :)
