i thought it was a funny joke.

as for the rest of his quote...i dont think he is wrong....well at least in terms of shoe, jerseys, apparel, sports equipment sales.

not to confuse TV ratings with global awareness, but in terms of marketability (as a function of how well known someone is hence global awarness), American football players (although i would say American Basketball players eclipse NFL players on a global scale) and soccer players are far more well known and dominate the global advertising market.

add to that the top tennis players, a few Olympians, some golfers, boxers back in the day, and the occasional cricketer.

in this respect, f1 drivers dont really come close imo.

as an aggregate, loads more people may watch F1 but i would say more people are willing to drink out of drivers shoe then actually buy a shoe endorsed by a driver.

anyways, the leaving the sport talk and now this quote...my feeling is that this is someone working what should be the largest F1 contract of all time.

Depends who he was talking too. If talking to an American then he was simply using the appropriate word.

Odd he seemed to describe NFL as a global sport, despite it being a world championship. But hey ho.

I’m more worried he’s turning into JYS.

It was the BRDC awards. Which makes it a bit...cringy tbh.

Still cringy-worth, but I think that was his costume for the British Fashion Awards held at the Royal Albert Hall (the clue is the red carpet up the steps leading towards the dome of the Hall). The BRDC do was held at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, I believe.

The costume, that seemed borrowed from JYS, was for the fashion thing. Akrapovic just meant the quote. My post was, as you say, of a different event.

Yeah I've no idea where that tartan monster came from. The soccer quote appears to be the BRDC awards (unless I've gotten that completely wrong?). I can't really imagine standing in front of Brits and using the word soccer.

On the other hand, I feel like it's just having a go at Lewis for the sake of having a go at Lewis.

And my third opinion is: I don't really care. But if he starts dropping the U from colour and mispronouncing route then s**t just got real.

It's easy to get confused at my age. Apologies if required.

John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten, wore a tartan suit back in the halcyon days of British Punk Rock. Maybe JYS and subsequently Lewis were inspired?

He pulls it off better than Scotsman or the American. Better music than both too.

This sentence must be a breach of the forum rules. I'm not sure which rule, but it must fit something.

Has Jackie ever recorded any music? I’m hoping for something really obscure like he was backing vocals on Mull of Kintyre or something.

I was referring to Lewis. There is a little joke going round that he sometimes acts like an American rapper.

There is no malice in this. As being an American isn’t a bad thing, this isn’t an insult. Just as it isn’t an insult to refer to Jackie Stewart as always wearing tartan. It’s just being silly. I don’t feel the need to have to give a disclaimer in every post that he is a decent guy and a brilliant driver, as it is clear. Although I have seen sometimes you can get thinely veiled attacks towards yourself if you don’t. This did upset me initially as it was unjust.

As we are now taking about the Sex Pistols I think you can see that this thread isn’t taking itself too seriously. It’s the off season.

We’re both worse people for me having to explain this.

I’m sure that if this line of discussion continues you can get the thread closed, which would be a shame.

I'll have a drink for Lewis, although it's a shame I can't get "Larkins" down here ! Incidentally he did fly in to my local airport in Almeria the other day but he didn't have time to pop in and see me
