So, while I was bored today, I got on YouTube and started watching some of the videos from the 1982 season review, where Clive James delivered some delightfully-deadpan comments about the on-track antics that season. And it got me thinking: if James was approached to narrate the 2010 season review, what would he have to say during the commentary?
This is really just a chance to come up with some James-esque comments of your own:
Vettel and Webber come together in Istanbul
When the dust had finally settled, one question was on everyone’s lips: what has Sebastian Vettel been thinking? Rumours and theories lit up the blogosphere, but it was eventually agreed that Vettel hadn’t been thinking at all.
Webber does a backflip over Kovalainen
Webber, with thoughts of retirement on his mind for 2011, was considering a move from Formula 1 to the Olympics, and so took the opportunity to display his athletic prowess for the high jump with a little help from Heikki Kovalainen.
The start at Suzuka
Nico Hulkenberg was so confident of winning the race, that he decided to let everyone else have a head start. He was, however, playing Russian roulette with the rest of the grid in the most literal sense, losing when he was hit by a runaway Russian Renault. Meanwhile at Ferrari, Felipe Massa decided that the best way to impress the Italians was to take one of them out at the first corner.
Red Bull swap Vettel and Webber’s front wings
The decision started on Friday, when Mark Webber dropped his ice cream cone in the Silverstone paddock, and Christian Horner gave him Sebastian Vettel’s. Thus, when Sebastian Vettel dropped his front wing on Saturday, it was decided that it was only fair to give him Mark Webber’s.
