…you talk through laps on F1 2010 like you’re Martin Brundle explaining it to the world.
Thank god, I thought I was the only one.
…when you go to a party and stay up really late, and still get up at 5 to watch qualifying.
…watch replays on racing games and try to explain what drivers are thinking (or is that just me)16th November 2010, 20:52 at 8:52 pm #151329EnigmaParticipant
When you know that rallying driving style is better for a shoping trolley than a formula 1 driving style.16th November 2010, 21:47 at 9:47 pm #151330irishladParticipant
When out go karting , you shout how to take the corners to yourself like martin brundle explaining a qualifying lap.
When you hear or see something about F1 in your area , you go out of your way to see it, Like when michael schumachers 2004 f1 car was a few mile from me and i never knew about it :(.16th November 2010, 22:16 at 10:16 pm #151331Red AndyParticipant
On the subject of shopping trolleys:
…you put too much heavy shopping towards the back of your trolley and then complain about understeer.16th November 2010, 22:28 at 10:28 pm #151332Ned FlandersParticipant
Haha some of these are great! Nice idea for a thread.
I remember when I was a kid (and occasionally now when I’m bored, but shhh don’t tell anyone!) I used to walk up/ down stairs with my hands out in front as though holding a steering wheel. When talking corner I’d then bump into the walls and go spinning round, simulating a crash. Twas fun, but also very sad…16th November 2010, 22:30 at 10:30 pm #151333Ned FlandersParticipant
Also, another one relevant to me is: when you’ve got barely a day and a half to spend in a great European city (Budapest), and you insist on spending a great deal of that time watching the Belgian GP weekend. Great race though it was, I wish I could just give the F1 a miss on occasions like those, but it just wasn’t possible!16th November 2010, 22:31 at 10:31 pm #151334TrueF1GritMember
…You take the racing line under any circumstances (walking, driving, pushing trolleys in the supermarket) and then retrace the route to try and perfect the line…
DanThorn! This is amazing! This is my life!16th November 2010, 22:34 at 10:34 pm #151335RIISEMember
When it rains I step in puddles to cool down my shoes.16th November 2010, 22:38 at 10:38 pm #151336Victor.Participant
The racing line is sooo true! :)16th November 2010, 22:38 at 10:38 pm #151337AnonymousInactive
…when the back section of your school journal is filled with the 1996 calendar, drawn, from memory, in Biro. Yes everyone though I was weird. Everyone!16th November 2010, 23:35 at 11:35 pm #151338GuilhermeMember
… when you hear “Red Bull” and the first thing that comes to your mind is the racing team, not the energy drink brand.16th November 2010, 23:40 at 11:40 pm #151339Ads21Participant
… when you go karting and if you understeer a bit you instantly think think “this kart is understeering like a cross channel ferry”16th November 2010, 23:47 at 11:47 pm #151340electroliteParticipant
When you start seeing tracks and corners in the shapes of everyday objects.17th November 2010, 0:26 at 12:26 am #151341JavaguyParticipant
…when cycling in the rain you put a flashing rear light on “Because that is what they do in F1”.
Not that I did that the other day, of course.
Actually I’ve also deliberately cycled through puddles to “cool the tyres”. And slightly because cycling through puddles is fun.
Oh, and also hello! Long time reader, first time poster, etc.17th November 2010, 0:33 at 12:33 am #151342ScribeParticipant
…your convinced screeching engine noises is a suitable acompliment for passing joggers
…you frequently outbrake yourself on fairly busy roads on your bike, who cares about mortality when there’s tenths to be gained.
…you get fairly excited whenever a female F1 fan is found
…you discuss tyre compounds with your sister over the dinner table
…you’ve topped the most frequent poster table on F1Fanatic, everynow and then you formulate a post in the hope Keith might make this one that next COTD, or plan to regain the top spot by massivley over posting.
