Mark Webber arrived. Remind me to keep him away from karaoke

Try to imagine this. A room full of Koreans, a karaoke machine, ready to go. All eyes are on the Big Celebrity, the F1 Championship Leader. And then it starts to sing.

On the other hand, Koreans are terribly polite. And they know how to keep their faces straight. Even so, it will be the ultimate test.

Best not to let it come that far.

First Russia, now the Koreans

Suddenly everybody is treating me like an Emperor. Personal plates are one thing, but this is taking it to the extreme.

If your country wants to host a future Grand Prix, pay attention. The Koreans are setting a benchmark here.

Putin called. Expects me to praise Russia’s automotive prowess

Apparently I have a responsibility now to serve and protect Mother Russia’s interests. He says my portrait is hanging in the Kremlin as the founder of modern automotive technology in twenty-first century Russia.

More specifically he takes issue with my showing some examples of car horrors earlier on. Says I do have a point and Russia has a long way to go, but it’s not all sadness and misery and I should show the other side of things too.

Oh dear. So now I’m Russia’s Automotive Propaganda Czar.

Threewheelergate is still keeping people busy

Hamilton in evil three-wheeler. Note that the driver has no shadow

Remember, you read about it here first. Maurice Hamilton did an in-depth investigation. From our side, we’re still investigating who let Maurice Hamilton in.

Rumours about Lewis having closed a pact with the Devil are completely baseless, of course. Coincidentally, soon after this he was propelled to fifth place on the UK’s Most Powerful Celebrities list. I’m only saying.
