Ever since I knew about the Hamilton-Rosberg pairing at Mercedes I had been hailing it as the best looking team in F1. As a result, I was extremely pleased when Simon Lazenby made a similar announcement on Sky Sports’ F1 coverage awhile back. Unfortunately I can’t remember exactly which race that was… as my brain is a mush at the moment. I was even conceited enough to think that perhaps he had drawn this “inspirational” comment from somewhere (you know… like this blog). LOL. Indeed, how conceited of me. Apparently Lazenby got this idea from his wife… and well, I do have to say it isn’t an overly original idea. Although I have been saying this ever since last year… so at least I was first? LOL.
Anyhoo, Nico is indeed #2 Top Model at Mercedes. I will admit that I have a Lewis bias, but I think it is quite fair to say that Lewis is far more photogenic. But perhaps you Nico fans out there think otherwise? If that’s the case, do find an unflattering photo of Lewis for me to laugh at. Drop me a line via twitter @thepitwalk or in the comments.
P.S. Less rubbish posts to follow
From being a Leonardo di Caprio lookalike to being called Britney… it’s not easy being Nico Rosberg. And if you think his tousled “carefree” hairstyle is natural, please think again. I’m sure Rosberg styles it quite intentionally:
After all, photographers are always snapping pictures, and it’s important to be camera ready at all times:
err… Nico. Since @FakeVivian asked to use the drawing I did last year for a blog entry, I thought I’d step it up and draw a new one. :p
So here it is… it’s a different style compared to last year’s SD-type:
Not quite accurate and I had to restrain myself from getting too into the eyes and lips. It’d be all too easy to make poor Nico look more like Britney than a man. Anyhoo I finished this just in time for Nico’s birthday… even in Europe!
Disclaimer: These type of drawings may give the impression that Rosberg is my favorite driver. This is not the case… I just haven’t attempted to draw many other drivers. =p
