By now I am sure that everyone is well aware of McLaren’s race suit “design” competition. I use the term “design” loosely because it seems that the most horrible designs make it into production. Poor Lewis and Jenson. The “special” edition racing suit seen in Barcelona was particularly bad. Did anyone else think that the drivers looked like they had bananas for arms?
Perhaps McLaren had a one-time sponsorship deal with Chiquita banana? -_-;;;
Last year, Lewis grew an “interesting” bit of facial hair. In case you don’t remember what it looked like, I will refresh your memory:
It wasn’t a very good look, and he shaved it off after awhile (thank God).
However it seems that Lewis is once again toying with facial hair. It’s similar to what he tried in 2010… overall the face is clean but now there is a little subtle strip along his jawline now:
I’m not really sure what to think here. I still think that Lewis is “rebelling” against McLaren’s corporate image. I’m sure that growing a full beard would totally rock the boat at McLaren. But this sort of half-assed facial hair growing is a little annoying too. Perhaps I’m of the mindset “Go big or go home”…
What do the readers think? Maybe I’m out of touch on this one and it’s just so cool that I don’t get it?
F1 will be broadcast in HD this year. Hooray! Yeah! All the action will be so clear, it’s like a dream come true for motorsport fans.
So who is actually HD ready? I’m not talking about the HD television sets in your houses, I’m talking about the F1 circus. It should go without saying that the cars and action will look great. 😉
Let’s start out with the good (aka HD ready):
As I’ve pointed out several times on this blog… Lewis Hamilton has the most fantastic skin on the grid. He is most certainly HD ready:
Nicole Scherzinger’s hair will also be great in HD. Imagine it swishing around while she paces back and forth ever so dramatically in the McLaren garage:
Super cutie Isabell will also be just fine:
It’s too bad the coverage doesn’t catch cute actions like this… but that’s okay I guess . 😛
I’m sure most fans will enjoy seeing Jessica Michibata:
Nothing can ever be pure good… are F1 fans ready to see the leader… err I mean Bernie in HD?
I’m not so sure I want to see Bernie in all of his “glory” in HD. I mean, high resolution digital images are bad enough anyway.
I suppose the silver lining is that my screen captures for 2011 will be much higher quality than 2010’s. ~_~
While EJ’s shirts are often a topic of controversy… I hope his infamous sweat will not be captured in HD for us:
Is the world ready for John Button’s unbuttons?
Alonso will need to take extra care to upkeep his eyebrows because we will be able to see any and all stray hairs:
What is everyone looking forward to seeing in HD this season? What scares you? Let me know via comment or twitter! 🙂
