#F1 Christmas Carols – Part One – Rudolph F1 Style

by on December 10, 2012

RudolphOk, I know my F1 poems are corny.  They’re meant for entertainment only.  So with that in mind, I’ve played with some of the words of a children’s classic Christmas carol.  The following are three different versions of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer… if you try to just read them, it won’t work.  You actually have to sing it to the song’s melody…either out loud or in your head.

In the spirit of the Christmas holidays and in the absence of Formula One, please indulge me for a few moments with these silly attempts at marrying the sport we love with the most wonderful time of the year…

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer – Bernie Style

Bernie the F1 Supremo
Has a very shiny nose
He hates Photographer’s cameras
And he rarely ever strikes a pose

All of the other team owners
Used to laugh and call him names
Until he bought F1’s rights
And they can’t make any claims

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
The German courts came to say…
“Bernie with your nose so bright,
Don’t worry about Gribkowsky bribe tonight”

Then all the team owners loved him
Because forever in the sport he’d be
Bernie the F1 Supremo
You’ll go down in history!

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer – Newey Style

Newey the aero genius
Penned a brilliant F1 car
And if you ever saw it
You’d say it raised the bar

All of the other designers
Used to laugh and call him names
Then he won several titles
And showed he wasn’t playing games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Vettel came to say
“Adrian you’re a shining star,
Won’t you design me another car?”

Then all the other designers
Packed up and called it a day
They all wished Newey would leave
And go very very far away!

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer – Alonso Style

Alonso the Ferrari driver
Had a very very long run
He almost won the 2012 title
Until everything came undone

All of the other drivers
Thought he had it in the bag
Then came Vettel and Newey
And beat him to the chequered flag

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Alonso came to say,
“Luca with your pockets so deep
Get the rules changed so I can compete”

Then all the drivers loved him
When the aero rules were scrapped
Alonso the Ferrari Driver
You’re the reason Vettel snapped!
