Starting the new season off right ~

Did everyone like watching F1 in HD? I sure did (ok… I had to settle for 320p resolution for quali since that was available more quickly at the time). Every bead of sweat, every pore… and every dress shirt in almost alarming detail. Yay! 😀

HD means better screen caps for this blog… although I had help from @MisterPigz with this because he had higher quality video sources than I did for both quali and race.

Melbourne quali:

During quali, EJ showed the world that he could not be possibly one upped by me. Indeed, I was quite right : plaid/paisley is a winning combi for EJ. All right, EJ is technically wearing gingham/paisley, but it’s close enough. I made the call two months ago anyway.

As for DC, he really likes this blue shirt with breast pockets, because he wore that shirt at least three times in 2010. Yes, I did the stats on it, though I haven’t posted them (BAD BAD ME!!!).

While none of our dear BBC crew has matched their shirts yet, it seems that Jake seems vaguely inspired by DC. Notice his shirt also has two breast pockets. 😉 Maybe he wanted one too after seeing DC wear it a few times last year?

Melbourne race day:

On race day at Melbourne, DC just had to wear a pink shirt. Is there any significance in this choice? 2010 was a long time ago, but DC wore the very same pink shirt at the beginning of the season too.

Bahrain 2010 quali:

Wow. Talk about starting the season off in the same way. 😉

Jake’s shirt is more forgettable… a dark tone (eggplant maybe? I’ll have to rewatch the race specifically for this detail)… But please note the double pockets again. Maybe DC really is his muse now? I guess that’s fine as long as Jake doesn’t start dressing like EJ. I have to admit that I was kind of excited to see EJ’s race day shirt in HD. At first glace, I thought EJ was wearing a shirt with oversized polka dots. But it soon became clear (thanks to the HD feed) that EJ’s shirt was merely giving my eyes optical illusions. I’m not quite sure how to describe the pattern… but as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Are you all excited for Malaysia? Renault’s “reflective gold” suits… the questionable Malaysian grid girl uniform (I hope they axe those fugly white sandals this year)… EJ’s next shirt choice.

I can’t wait! 🙂

P.S. The screen caps @Misterpigz helped with are actually quite good… but somehow wordpress is enlarging all of my photos and making them grainier than the original 😦

    Dig the blue polka dot shirt. It looks great on EJ.

      I’ll be doing an EJ special. I’m not sure of the exact brand… but I have a few ideas.
