The Lion King of F1 is Dead

14/05/2010 2 comments

What I mean is that Romain Grosjean was seen with a new haircut in Monaco. That’s the third driver to cut their hair (remember Vettel and Hartley did as well). I hope Alonso doesn’t join the crowd and cut his hair as well!

Anyway, it’s a good thing that Grosjean decided to get rid of his lion’s mane, this is a cleaner look for him. But I do have to admit that I didn’t recognize him for a minute (or two). I then realized that yes, this was indeed a photo of Grosjean because I recognized his girlfriend Marion Jolles first*.

Isn’t that sad for him? His face is as unmemorable as his driving with Renault. It’s probably going to take more than a simple haircut for Grosjean to drive in F1 again. Ouch, that was a bit harsh, wasn’t it? Well, at least his jacket fits him nicely? 🙂

* Did anyone else notice that they kind of matched their outfits? They both layered hoodies underneath their jackets. I wonder if it was intentional or not…

Not sure why I call Grosjean “Lion King”? See this post.


The REAL Reason ING Pulled Renault Sponsorship

renault no ing

Yeah, yeah… the Renault-Piquet-crashing-race-fixing-thing was a big scandal and the primary reason for ING pulling its sponsorship. Everyone and their mothers knows that by now, right?

But… I now have an additional reason as well! Grosjean not only appears to look like the Lion King, but the ING logo as well. Isn’t that weird? I don’t know why I had not noticed before. Maybe I am too fixated on Disney and cartoons? Well whatever the case, maybe we have a case of copyright issues here? Haha… just kidding. Maybe ING could just sponsor Grosjean instead, afterall, he DOES look like that ING lion. 😛

Romain Grosjean used to have neat short hair… but the only face of Grosjean I have known is the long-haired-skater-Grosjean from this season’s F1.

I don’t know how many people noticed, but when I saw Grosjean’s wild hair, I was just reminded of LION KING. Specifically, the Lion King Broadway Musical Logo. Do you see it too?

So Grosjean… do you want to be king? Work hard and here are some Lion King quotes for you….

Mufasa: Simba, let me tell you something my father told me. Look at the stars. The great kings of the past are up there, watching over us.
Young Simba: Really?
Mufasa: Yes. So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you. And so will I.

Spirit of Mufasa: Simba, you have forgotten me. You have forgotten who you are and so forgotten me. Look inside your self Simba, you are more than what you have become, you must take your place in the circle of life. Remember who you are…. remember….
