Let’s face it: during the summer break, news is seriously lacking. If you’re an American fan, you’re finding that all there is to do is tell people which month you’d think is better for the US race next year on Twitter. Wow. Great.
Everything else is particularly not newsworthy. Oh, great, the Hungaroring people want to repave it. That’s great.
So what are drivers up to on their vacations? Some of their tweets have given a bit of insight, take Jenson Button:
What can we deduct are Jenson’s vacation plans? Mai tais. Lots and lots of mai tais.
Keep on celebrating!
Heikki Kovalainen is spending his break being a troll. First, he “overtook” Michael Schumacher for the first time this year…on a flight back to Geneva.
Today, it’s this:
Heikki will soon be starring in Discover commercials alongside Peggy. Give it time. In the meantime, he plans to play golf for days, so those playing with him better watch out…if he shows up to the course with a fire extinguisher, it’s best you assume you won’t be doing well.
Supposedly Fernando Alonso is here in the United States for his vacation. What could he be up to? Given his penchant for baseball caps, perhaps he would like to add some baseball team hats to his collection. If ice cream is an interest for all who have ever driven for Ferrari, he can even get ice cream inside a litle baseball hat.
Expect him to return home with a collection of those plastic hat cups.
And lastly for this edition, Daniel Ricciardo…what could he be up to? Earlier Red Bull Racing answered a fan question about which driver is a better dancer with, “Daniel Ricciardo used to be known as ‘Disco Dan.’” So of course, the young driver currently at HRT will be getting back that nickname, there will be no “used to be known” as Disco Dan, he IS Disco Dan! Watch out nightclubs across the world!
