David Coulthard and Mika Hakkinen in zero-gravity
The talk of Andy Murray at Wimbledon and how apparently he’s “British when he wins, Scottish when he doesn’t” made me think.
Does Paul di Resta get the same sort of “British when he does well, Scottish when he doesn’t” treatment in F1? What about David Coulthard and Eddie Irvine, when they were active drivers? (In Irvine’s case you can switch “Scottish” for “Irish”.)

Yes, it is Michael Schumacher’s helmet. He lent for Coulthard because was having problems with your. As they had the same sponsor, there was no problem.
Schumacher to McLaren for 1996 almost happened, believe it or not.
Imagine how different F1 would have been.
So today in class I somehow ended up doodling Damon Hill and David Coulthard with way more hair than he’s ever had ever
the only reason it could even be considered DC is because of his square jaw
Remember in 1997 when there was an Orange McLaren <3
I really wish they’d run an orange car some time. Maybe for like their 50th anniversary or something?
