2014 F1 Drivers Guide for @ScarbsF1
A Humorous Look At How to Identify F1 drivers in 2014 for my mate Craig Scarborough
It appears this may become an annual feature. It was a huge hit last season thanks to Craig Scarborough for inspiring the idea. As requested Scarbsie, this is for you.
#14, can be easily identified in his red suit either celebrating enthusiastically, wearing a frown, in a deep pensive state or experimenting as media in preparation for a career switch.
#77, does not like the smell of the new Pirelli tyres. He can often be found holding his breath through the paddock or practicing his podium jumps.
#22, Has just gotten engaged and can be either spotted in a state of pre-marital bliss or practicing life as a married man with both ears plugged and a blank stare on his face.
#4, is easily identifiable as he can often be found studying his MR03, sniffing exhaust fumes or squatting behind his car as if he is hiding from Jules Bianchi.
#9, F1 rookie, loves his sleep. He can be found sneaking a cat-nap when not behind the wheel.
#8 is never far from his bottle of BURN Energy Drink. The effects of which can be seen in this “before and after” photo sequence above.
#21, is always found wearing or fiddling with his ear-buds, ear-plugs or radio headset. Rarely found without something in or on his ears.
#27, a.k.a. the HULK, is usually in the company of a pretty lady. He is notorious for making inappropriate use of his microphone (look closely).
#25, Jean-Eric can’t be missed. He is in a constant daze, with a glazed look on his face. It is widely believed that he is in disbelief over having been passed over by Red Bull Racing.
#17, The Marussia driver is very health conscious. He is usually smiling or enjoying his favorite juice box.
#10, making a comeback to Formula 1 with Team Green (Caterham), the Japanese superstar and fan favorite referred to as Kobay, can be spotted from time to time imitating Bernie Ecclestone or in disguise wearing oversize sunglasses.
#26, another F1 rookie always looking to catch some kip. Happy to crash anywhere anytime.
#44, rarely found without his Blackberry in hand “Snappin’ Selfies”, or in the company of his companion Roscoe.
#20, this F1 rookie does not believe in sleeping. He is never far from McLaren team mate Jenson Button. Can usually be found observing him closely so he can meet a lovely young lady like Button’s fiancée Jessica Michibata
#13, the ultimate joker. Always in a good mood, can be spotted “fueling is fire” with @Burn or fooling people into believing he’s listening to music when he’s really just wearing ear-plugs.
#19, the lone Brazilian, draped in blue wearing a disturbed or concerned look. He can be found glancing at photos of his new car on his mobile phone, thinking of a way to explain the nose of his new Williams to his wife….
#11, known as the ”Spicy Mexican”. Beware, he is constantly trying to serve up bowls of inferno chilly (ask Will Buxton). This season he’ll be listening to Bollywood hits and trying to learn Indian as a second language.
#7, back in red, making his second home in Maranello in 2014. He can be found avoiding eye contact with everyone or pondering the meaning of “two roosters in the hen house” in media scrums.
#3, the smiling Aussie is very alert and paranoid. Afraid someone may take his Red Bull seat, he can be found marking his territory at every opportunity.
#6, can be spotted imitating Mercedes AMG team mate Lewis with his Blackberry in hand “Snappin’ Selfies” or sucking Monster Energy Drink through his bendy straw while listening to Hamilton’s R&B or rap music.
#99, subconsciously aware that he’s driving Sauber’s “50 Shades of Grey”, he can be identified by his wide array of fashionable eyewear. Some say, he’s hiding from the original #99 Wayne Gretzky and that his eyebrows are painted on. All we know is, he’s not the Stig.
#1, tired of being known as “The Finger”, Vettel can be spotted in the paddock easily as he is eager to show everyone that he in fact can use more than just one finger. (Not the one Mark Webber likes to use)
