Ok, so this is the first post in a new category we’ve started – F1 Stories. This section is for all those funny F1 stories.. you know, the urban legends.. the folklore.. And there is so much in F1. So let’s start with the most common story (which you can retell with different driver’s names as seems to be the case on the net..):

During one Britsh Grand Prix weekend Ayrton Senna was running late for free practice. He was stopped on his way to Silverstone by a police officer for speeding. The officer came to the window and opened with, “Who do you think you are, Nigel Mansell?”. :-D

Now the spin on this one is Nigel Mansell sometimes works as a police officer (his old job). When he pulls someone over for speeding, guess what his opener is? “Who the hell do you think you are? Nigel Mansell?”.. :roll:

Ok.. so now we’ve got the bad ones out of the way let’s hear your great F1 stories! 8)

  1. One of the best ones I know is the one about Martin Brundle. He has a bad crash at Monaco, flips the car and lands it on its side, totalling it. The guy, half conscious, gets out of the car, RUNS back to the pits. His team boss lets him know there are still a few minutes left in the qualifying session and that if he’s going back out he needs to go now. So Martin jumps into the spare car (and bearing in mind he’s just been in one of the worst looking crashes monaco has seen, debris everywhere, and still suffering from concussion), as he climbs into the car he asks his team boss “right, which track are we at?”.
