And now for something completely different. It’s Sunday afternoon and, as a break from the story we’re all a bit sick of, here’s a selection of some of my favourite funny F1 moments – featuring Nigel Mansell, Mika Hakkinen, Michael Schumacher, and everyone’s favourite F1 comedy double act: Nelson Piquet and Eliseo Salazar.
