Sauber Welcomes Sergio Perez

What a warm welcome… I don’t know, but if I had these photos of me floating around, I wouldn’t be too pleased. =X

I understand the concept of having him pose in the car… but I feel a bit bad for the guy. Poor Sergio Perez… he looks like a floating head. 😦

Well, at least he’s a happy smiling floating head. I guess. :/


A new constipated man appears in Korea

Those who have followed this blog for awhile know that my nickname for Massa is “Constipated Man.” However, it looks like Massa was “relieved” in Korea and another driver has stepped up in his place.

So who could it be?

Why, it’s Top McLaren Model Lewis Hamilton!


Sorry, I couldn’t resist…!

How to dress for a job interview

Finding a job these days is hard and the competition can be fierce for the simplest of jobs. While education and work experience cannot be changed, one important area that is 100% within your power to be changed is YOUR APPEARANCE.

Yes, that’s right. Perception is everything, especially when the interviewer has zero knowledge about your competency and work habits. One of the best ways to influence others’ perception of you is through outward appearance, so it should not be neglected! This is important even in industries famous for not having dress codes. No dress code is no excuse for looking like a slob. It is inevitable that some people will make subconscious judgments, so why not avoid that problem altogether?

While it is shallow, do give it some thought. I realize that America (and especially California) are way more casual than other countries… so let’s get on with the F1 aspect of this entry. 😛

How to dress for a job interview as illustrated by Nick Heidfeld:

Hm… what Heidfeld is wearing would probably be the absolute minimum at a job interview. He is wearing a dress shirt with some personality: the shirt buttons are black and white and there appears to be some embroidery at the cuffs. Heidfeld appears to be wearing dark jeans, but it would be better to wear slacks at an interview. 😉 He is carrying the famous man bag, which is quite practical for interviews. While there is nothing wrong with wearing comfortable shoes, please do not wear sneakers like Heidfeld. Mixing sneakers with dressier clothes will just cause the overall look to be confused*.

Personal grooming of hair and facial hair should also be neat. Some people look better with facial hair, some look better without, it’s a personal judgement call really. However in Heidfeld’s case, he is better off not looking like a bear!

* True story: I have seen someone in a white shirt, tie, khakis, and dirty beat up Pumas. My thoughts were literally: 1. What happened?, 2. Do you not own any other shoes?, 3. Couldn’t you at least clean those shoes? I know it seems catty… but that’s just how first impressions go sometimes!

What do the readers think? Am I just talking out of my ass, or do you agree? Hopefully this was an enjoyable entry for some readers! 🙂

The Korean circuit isn’t the only work in progress

This grid girl uniform has got to be one of the worst. I’m not trying to bash on Korea’s effort, but this outfit is just plain bizarre and unflattering.

What’s so bad about it? There are several issues, but the main offense is the horrid waistband of the pants. For some reason the designer thought it was a good idea to have a sort of “cut out” waistband for “sexiness.” Unfortunately the cut out makes the pants look unfinished, or worse yet… Ripped! The white part of the waistband also curves up and makes the grid girls with less than perfect abs look PREGNANT! Good lord, who designed this?

Here is a back view… it’s worse in many ways as the waistband gives the appearance of a faux thong. Ick, borderline trashy right?

One of my Twitter followers, xogenevaxo, also provided me with a photo of the ugly shoes that are part of the Korean grid girl uniform.

White shoes have the tendency to look cheap if they are not done right. These white shoes certainly look cheap, they are reminiscent of go-go dancer shoes… or worse yet… stripper shoes. What a perfect accompaniment to the love hotels. =x Red or black shoes would have been a much more tasteful choice!

However, to be fair… the espadrilles that the Spanish grid girls wear are also very ugly.

The Malaysian grid girls also wore white shoes that were boring and old fashioned.

So which shoes are worse? Would you rather have grid girls wearing stripper shoes, espadrilles, or grandma’s shoes?

Caught in the act

Aww… look at happy Buemi. He just looks so happy with his iPad. But it looks like he was caught doing something incriminating on his iPad. Perhaps he found some pr0n? Nah.. he must be watching the video of himself doing the F1 car impression. Yes, that must be it… Buemi’s impression is just so good he feels the need to rewatch it over and over… and over again. 😉

I first posted about this video in March, the original post is here.

For the lazy, the video is embedded below:

To keep this fashion related, what do the readers think of the Red Bull hoodie that Buemi is wearing above? I think I like the one with the large raging bull on it better:


Underneath Bruno’s Cap

Has anyone wondered why Bruno Senna is almost always wearing a baseball cap? I know I have!

I don’t have to wonder anymore, because this photo has surfaced:

Oooooh. Potential for semi-big-afro-hair. Is it just me, or this photo a little Grosjean feeling? Yeah yeah… I know it’s just the curly hair, they look nothing alike! I’m not really blind, I swear.

Perhaps the reason Bruno wears caps so often is because he constantly battles bad hair days? Maybe Bruno needs some haircare lessons from Nando? I’m sure Nando can teach him a thing or too about controlling unruly hair! 😉

Suzuka’s Rain Battle

22/10/2010 3 comments

Hey hey… I know the photos from Korea have been released already… but there’s one more post for Suzuka: The Suzuka Rain Battle! 🙂

The first contender is Raquel del Rosario:

Raquel wore a red and black striped top with a navy military inspired jacket and skinny cut up jeans from Met. The booties she wore went well with military chic image.

Raquel’s competition is Jessica Michibata:

Jessica also wore a striped sweater in black* and white. She paired the sweater with ankle length skinny jeans and black patent ballet flats. With her hair in a chignon, the overall look was quite classic and perhaps slightly nautical inspired.

So which striped top/skinny jean combination do the readers prefer? The more classic look of Jessica or the harder edged look of Raquel? 🙂

* Or was it navy? Hard to tell!

P.S. I prefer Raquel’s look, but it is just closer to my personal aesthetic and way of dressing. 🙂
