    Basically, see if any song lyrics can be related to any F1 people.#

    I’ll start.

    Now, this is by Nicole Scherzigner, and my relation is to Alonso, so something’s gone wrong there. It relates to Alonso’s time at McLaren, and whether he’ll ever go back to the dark side.

    Nicole Scherzinger – Don’t hold your breath

    You cant touch me now theres no feeling left

    If you think Im coming back dont hold your breath

    What you did to me boy I cant forget

    If you think Im coming back dont hold your breath



    Sutil- “He’s got taste, manners and grace, But when he gets tough he’ll slit your face.” The Kinks- He’s Evil.

    Massa’s relationship with Ferrari- “I may not always love you but long as there are stars above you you need never to doubt it. I’ll make you so sure about it. God only knows what I’d be without you.” Beach Boys-God only knows

    Willie Nelson’s ‘Are you sure?’ pretty much fits with anybody who is having a rough time in F1.

    Not sure if this is exactly what you have in mind, but there’s a line in ‘Runnin’ Down a Dream’ by Tom Petty that goes: “The last three days the rain was unstoppable” which, every time I listen to it (which is quite often, it’s a great song) sounds a lot like “The last three days Narain was unstoppable” which always amuses me and my simple mind :P

    Also the entirety of Billy Joel’s ‘She’s Always a Woman’ perfectly sums up Ferrari.



    Lol Dan! Agree about ‘She’s Always a Woman’. When the BBC played it last year at Turkey it went perfectly with the Ferrari clips.


    Ned Flanders

    Haha nice one Dan! Running Down a Dream is on GTA San Andreas, I always used to listen to that radio station while flying about blowing things up in the Harrier jet…

    I suppose that BMW engineer who got electrocuted by KERS back in 2009 could’ve made a cameo in the video for the excellent Danger! High Voltage



    Honda for selling up and not racing in 2009: “I coulda been a contender”



    And I guess anything by Justin Beiber for Seb Vettel – are those guys twins or does Seb do singing in his spare time?



    I always remember Felipe Massa when I hear Alejandro by Lady Gaga:

    I’m not your babe, I’m not your babe, Fernando…

    And then the winning song of Eurovision 2010 (The Satellite by Lena) always reminds me of F1 because it contains the following text:

    Where you go, I follow

    You set the pace we take it fast or slow

    I follow in your wake

    Probably a good description of Alonso’s relationship with Petrov after Abu Dhabi 2010 and Australia 2011…

    ‘The Wanderer’ by Dion can fit Sakon Yamamoto quite well, albeit with a bit of tweaking…

    Oh well, I’m the type of guy who will never settle down

    Where struggling teams are rife, you know that I’m around

    I race ’em and I spin ’em ’cause to me they’re all the same

    I pay ’em and I drive ’em they don’t even know my name

    They call me the wanderer

    Yeah, the wanderer

    I roam around, around, around

    Oh well, there’s HRT on my left and there’s Spyker on my right

    But Super Aguri is the team that I’ll be with tonight

    And when they ask me, which team loves me the best

    I tear open my shirt and show ’em the money on my chest

    ‘Cause I’m the wanderer

    Yeah, the wanderer

    I roam around, around, around

    Oh well, I roam from team to team

    I go through life without a care

    And I’m as happy as a clown

    With my two fists of cash and I’m going nowhere

    I’m the type of guy that likes to roam around

    I’m never in one place, I roam from team to team

    And when I find myself without another drive

    I pay to get in that car of yours and ride around the world

    Yeah I’m the wanderer

    Yeah, the wanderer

    I roam around, around, around…



    Sebastien Vettel ‘I’m in love with my car’ by queen




    Since we’re on the whole Queen/Red Bull driver theme, how about

    for Mark Webber

    Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen



    “I’ve got the green light, I’ve got a little fight, I’m going to turn this thing around.” Webber. Killers- Read My Mind

    Alonso switchgate- “I get by with a little help from my friends.”


    All my troubles seemed so far away,

    Now it looks as though they’re here to stay,

    Oh, I believe in yesterday.


    I’m not half the man I used to be,

    There’s a shadow hanging over me” Beatles-Yesterday I think suits Hamilton as one minute he’s on top of the world the next the papers are constantly having a go.



    BBC chose Wonderman for a race after Vettel won and some of the lyrics are very apt.

    “Yeh, these haters couldn’t get to where I am with a full tank of petrol”



    Stevo wins for an obscure Queen reference.



    As a Linkin Park fan I think this verse from “Points of Authority” goes well with Michael Schumacher in a way…

    Forfeit the game

    Before somebody else

    Takes you out of the frame

    And puts your name to shame

    Cover up your face

    You can’t run the race

    The pace is too fast

    You just won’t last
