    Which small team would you like to start with?

    Which midfield team would you move to?

    Would you drive for Ferrari or Mclaren?

    and you only won one race where would you like it to be?

    what controversy would you most likely cause?

    who would you want for a team mate?

    who would you not want for a team mate?

    Great thread!

    Which small team would you like to start with?

    - I’d do a season with Lotus. I’d be competent for most of the year but shock when I get through to Q2 on genuine pace at the last round and qualify 14th.

    Which midfield team would you move to?

    - I’d sign with Sauber next. In an impressive second season I claim two podiums – one at a crazy Monaco race, and another at a more normal Suzuka race. I remain with Sauber for another season, where a duff car yields no podiums but I do manage a pole position at Montreal and lead comfortably before retiring with an engine failure mid way through.

    Would you drive for Ferrari or Mclaren?

    - McLaren offer me a seat after my first season at Sauber, but I shockingly turn it down. After my second season at Sauber Ferrari buy Alonso out of their contract to make room for me. I win two titles for the Scuderia in two seasons before retiring.

    and you only won one race where would you like it to be?

    - Montreal.

    and you were remembered for an epic duel to the flag who would you want to be battling with?

    - Kobayashi.

    what controversy would you most likely cause?

    - Me turning down the McLaren seat demoralises and angers Martin Whitmarsh, directly leading to his eventual sacking.

    who would you want for a team mate?

    - My departure from Ferrari and the sport is sudden and as a result of building tension between me and the team. I want a stronger team mate such as Alonso to learn from and challenge myself, but Ferrari want a solid number two to help deliver them titles. Seeing any other team move as a step backwards, I opt for an early retirement.

    who would you not want for a team mate?

    - Massa.

    would you urge your team to make your team mate move over if you were quicker?

    - No, but I wouldn’t complain if they did so of their own accord ;)

    what would be your word(s) i.e Massa’s “for sure” Heikki’s “hardcore”?

    - Epic.

    which driver would you have a long term rivalry with?

    - Kobayashi

    which driver would you go for a drink with?

    - Kobayashi

    what would you be like? James Hunt style, cracking jokes like G Hill or moody like Alonso etc?

    I’d have Jenson’s relaxed demeanour away from the track but on race weekends I’d be focused and logical like Alonso.

    and which celeb would you be famous for dating?

    As part of an ongoing practical joke Nick Heidfeld and I pretend to be having a steamy affair.

    Which small team would you like to start with?

    - I’d like to kick my career off with Virgin actually.

    Which midfield team would you move to?

    - Probably Force India, where I score their first ever victory at a surprising Spa race.

    Would you drive for Ferrari or Mclaren?

    - Ferrari. Just as long as they don’t get rid of Alonso for me.

    And you only won one race where would you like it to be?

    - Monaco. In the Renault of this year preferably.

    And you were remembered for an epic duel to the flag who would you want to be battling with?

    - Depends totally on the situation.

    What would be your word(s) i.e Massa’s “for sure” Heikki’s “hardcore”?

    - Totally welded the foot to the floor, but got nothing.

    Which driver would you have a long term rivalry with?

    - Daniel Ricciardo. My eventual team mate at Renault.

    Which driver would you go for a drink with?

    - Kobayashi

    Which small team would you like to start with?

    Lotus, being an aggressive driver I would push for Q2 all the time not caring about the tyres.

    Which midfield team would you move to?

    Sauber, I will be battling it out with Kobayashi to get the most points for the team and making mince-meat out of Schumacher!

    Would you drive for Ferrari or Mclaren?

    1 season with Sauber which sees me finish 8th overall, Schumacher retires and Mercedes re-sign Button, McLaren come knocking on the door along with Ferrari as Massa moves to Brazilian Truck Racing (lol). I turned down Ferrari with public humiliation on TV and sign up for McLaren saying “I will never drive for Ferrari in my life time!”

    And you only won one race where would you like it to be?

    Qualifying 16th in a McLaren at Spa, the team were unhappy with me, Whitmarsh declaring, if i dnt finish on the podium he will bring in Gary Paffett in my seat. Half the track was wet, the other half being dry, I battle it out with Vettel, him being on Inters, me being on Slicks, last lap tussle i ‘do’ him in Les Combes!

    And you were remembered for an epic duel to the flag who would you want to be battling with?

    Sebastian Vettel

    What controversy would you most likely cause?

    Sticking a piece of paper on the back of Jean Todt saying, FIA: Ferrari Bashers!. I end up with a 2-race disqualification.

    Who would you want for a team mate?

    Lewis Hamilton

    Who would you not want for a team mate?

    Sebastian Vettel AND Fernando Alonso

    Would you urge your team to make your team mate move over if you were quicker?

    Hell No!!

    What would be your word(s) i.e Massa’s “for sure” Heikki’s “hardcore”?

    Team America’s “F**k Yeah!!” I even do it on BBC and Jake Humphrey embarrassingly apologises, I do it again for good measures!!

    Which driver would you have a long term rivalry with?

    Sebastian Vettel ENG v GER

    Which driver would you go for a drink with?

    Lewis Hamilton, we have a Sambuka cntest. Well when i say ‘we’, i mean myself n him watching.

    What would you be like? James Hunt style, cracking jokes like G Hill or moody like Alonso etc?

    Cross between Hunt and Piquet, have fights whoever takes me off and take a pic with every girl on the grid! Also play practical jokes on LH, puttin glue inside his gloves and shaving off Rosbergs hair and eyebrows while he is asleep!

    And which celeb would you be famous for dating?

    I would have a string of one-night stands with Z-list celebrities such as Bianca Gascoigne, Imogen Thomas and Jodie Marsh. Haha might as well. Then settle down with Kelly Brook.

    Which small team would you like to start with?

    - Lotus, deffo. I wouldn’t start qualifying due to an unfortunate hydraulics leak but I’d battle my way up from last on the grid to take a memorable second place.

    Which midfield team would you move to?

    - Williams, always in the points and they’d teach me a lot.

    Would you drive for Ferrari or Mclaren?

    - Hmm, toughy. I reckon I’d do a Kimi and pick both, but Ferrari first then McLaren. ;)

    And you only won one race where would you like it to be?

    - Spa.

    And you were remembered for an epic duel to the flag who would you want to be battling with?

    - Ideally, Michael Schumacher (when he was in his prime), but now probably Alonso, just to see his face when we pull into parc ferme.

    What controversy would you most likely cause?

    - I retire at my home race (and home county!) of Silverstone but rather than returning to the garage I’d sit with the fans, watching the race.

    Who would you want for a team mate?

    - Someone experienced…Rubens?

    Who would you not want for a team mate?

    - Sebastian Vettel.

    Would you urge your team to make your team mate move over if you were quicker?

    - In almost all coincidences, no. But if it was at the last round and only I could win the championship, I ‘d hope so. I’d be faster than my team-mate anyway. ;)

    What would be your word(s) i.e Massa’s “for sure” Heikki’s “hardcore”?

    - I forgot to put the bins out. (someone here MUST watch Armstrong and Milelr, surely!)

    Which driver would you have a long term rivalry with?

    - Alonso, after our epic battle, previously mentioned.

    Which driver would you go for a drink with?

    - Kamui Kobayashi.

    What would you be like? James Hunt style, cracking jokes like G Hill or moody like Alonso etc?

    - I’d be like TT rider Guy Martin. Look him up on YouTube. Hilarious.

    And which celeb would you be famous for dating?

    - I wouldn’t want to date a celebrity. My girlfriend would only become famous because she was dating me.

    Great thread Steph! But please, answer the questions yourself too! :D

    Which small team would you like to start with?

    I’d love to start with Virgin. The current Lotus annoys me to death and HRT is just too slow! :P

    Which midfield team would you move to?

    Sauber, definitely, and then move up to Renault for a season.

    Would you drive for Ferrari or Mclaren?

    Neither. I’d try a drive with Red Bull.

    and you only won one race where would you like it to be?

    Interlagos. I’d dominate the entire race weekend, setting the fastest laps on all practice and qualifying seasons, and lead every lap from pole, setting fastest lap in the race, to the delight of my fanatic home crowd.

    and you were remembered for an epic duel to the flag who would you want to be battling with?

    Fernando Alonso. Of course I’d win. And then tell the media I was faster than him. ;)

    what controversy would you most likely cause?

    I can’t think of one because I’d never stir up controversies on purpose. If I ever start a controvesy I’d be purely by accident.

    who would you want for a team mate?

    Robert Kubica

    who would you not want for a team mate?

    I’d probably want Fernando Alonso and Mark Webber as far away as possible from me.

    would you urge your team to make your team mate move over if you were quicker?

    I used to support Ferrari up till Hockenheim. Does that answer the question?

    what would be your word(s) i.e Massa’s “for sure” Heikki’s “hardcore”?

    “F*** yeah!”, after winning a race.

    which driver would you have a long term rivalry with?

    Lewis Hamilton.

    which driver would you go for a drink with?

    Too bad, I don’t drink! But I’d certainly invite Vettel, Kobayashi and Barrichello for a churrasco in my house!

    what would you be like? James Hunt style, cracking jokes like G Hill or moody like Alonso etc?

    Graham Hill all the way. A bit like Mansell on track though (yeah, I know that’s not a good thing!) :P

    and which celeb would you be famous for dating?

    I’m very much in love with my girlfriend so I guess the only way for me to date a celebrity is she becoming a celebrity :P

    Virgin sign me up and I claim them 10th in the constructors with a crazy 9th at the first race.

    Williams take me in and I become a regualar points scorer with the occasional podium.

    Would you drive for Ferrari or Mclaren?

    Britain. I cry.

    and you were remembered for an epic duel to the flag who would you want to be battling with?

    A five way fight like in monza 71(?) Alonso, Hamilton, Vettel, Hulkenburg and I. 3 tenths cover all five.

    - Well Steph seems to be a bit of a celeb in the online F1 community :P Like what some of the others have said I’d probably rather date someone who I’d met before I was rich and famous
