Paddock Blotter: April 29th edition

Been awhile since I’ve done Juan ‘O these - yet this time I’m trying a slightly different angle, just a few bits ‘n pieces, or is that Kibbles ‘N Bitz; Hya! As here’s a few items that’s caught my attention lately, but just haven’t’ been able to scribble ‘bout I-T...

‘Blackjack turns 87
First off, although having already occurred, nevertheless I noticed that Sir Jack “Blackjack” Brabham celebrated his 87th birthday recently, which is good news since I believe he’s not only the oldest living triple World Champion, but oldest living World Champion period...


Teammate Tusselz
Yeah, ok, I’ve already pretty much moved on; but, read this entertaining article about the ten worst teammate tantrums which was inspired by the Vettel-Webber shenanigans at Malaysia. And although I vaguely remember that Rene Arnoux pulled a Vettel/Pironi upon teammate Alain Prost, I’d somehow missed out upon Alan Jones & Carlos Reutmann doing something similar...


Back In the Kitchen, Missy
Oh Sir Stirling, how quaint of you to say that women just don’t have the mental ‘Kahoona’s to drive & race Formula 1 racecars... As I suppose you’d just like them to stay in the kitchen, fix your supper and put a spot ‘O tea on for Yuhs, right?


As yeah, that was an easy Juan, as obviously some pundit seeking controversy knew exactly where to look, and certainly how one of the sports O-L-D Guard would pontificate upon I-T as thee ‘Wee Willie Buxom (Will Buxton) rightfully points out in his point of view titled;


As I’d personally like to see the likes of “Symona-Symona” (Simona de Silvestro) or thee original “Swiss Missile” Cyndie Allemann be given a shot in Formula 1, while I’m not exactly certain if toto Wolff’s squeeze Susie ‘Q has the chops to cut it as a top tier F1 chauffer, albeit certainly has the ability to race a Grand Prix car...

Kimball Speaks Out
That’s Charlie Kimball Y’all, as here’s an interview the third year IndyCar driver recently gave...


Red Bulls next Stunt?
And while we’re taking the shine off of some Stirling sod, I find it funny that there has been remarkably little press about Red Bull’s latest Junior Driver hiring, which was a female... As in 18-year-old Netherlander female race car driver Beitske Visser whom I’ve never heard of before...


And let’s not forget about the promising young British lass Alice Powell, who that dastardly ‘Dom ‘O IndyCar Bloggers, i.e.; thee ‘DAWG, nee Pressdog once again has already  scooped out an interview with the aspiring female F1 prospect last September and now reports on her latest triumphs in;


The Original ReinMeister?
Spotted this during the Chinese GP weekend, noting how it was 20 years ago that Ayrton Senna thoroughly decimated the field in a soaking  wet, soggy, downright diabolical British GP at Donnington Park in his inferior McLaren Ford/Cosworth V-8 vs. the mighty Williams-Renault’s and the rest of the runners...

Don’t know if it’s just my O-L-D browser or what gives? As it makes total sense how Formula 1 won’t even let you view a stinkin’ video from 20yrs ago and they wonder why they’re losing viewers...


Panther DRR to Lose its Tail?
Was pretty surprised to hear the news that the owners of Panther DRR, Robbie buhl and Dennis Reinbold have told its staff and driver Oriel Servia that they’ll be out of work after this year’s Indy 500 unless some much needed sponsorship can be found; YIKES!
