aprescott has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Nice one DC

Today I saw a Formula One driver helping the marshals take his busted car away, and help clearing the track.......

Nice one DC!!

He certainly seems to be a happy relaxed bunny this year. Maybe Mr Schumacher should take a leaf out of DC's book.

During the Practice at the BGP when his car run out of steam at Farm DC sat out on the grass behind the post much to the delight of the crowd in that area. (Not to easy for the spectator stewards) I believe he also gave assistance when his car was collected and went back in the recovery vehilcle.
A great example and I agree its this kind of human behavior that makes a great man. Perhaps he also reads 10 Tenths?

He said that he didn't want transport back to the pits. Didn't he disappear into the crowd for a while to sign autographs?!

This shouldn't come as a surprise. Red Bull are extremely media savvy, they are the past masters of taking every tiny moment of positive media and positive PR available. You would imagine that after the years of the stifling secrecy of insular Maclaren, the fan friendly "be happy at all times" PR approach of Red Bull, would probably be a nice change of pace for DC.

I've met DC a few times over the years, and he's always been very, very polite. At a celeb karting event a few years ago he walked into the the changing rooms and greeted everyone. Had a chat with a few people and acted like the totally normal bloke that he is. My point is that I don't think he's become a more relaxed person, I think he was always a very friendly person...

It seems he could be voted "Marshals most popular F1 driver of the Season" An example for others to follow. Red Bull is also great and keeps me awake during long boring races.

I think he's a great bloke too, but should he really have been on the track picking himself something to sell on Ebay? (It looked like he was on the track anyway, but I could be wrong!!)

Eddy Irvine used to do the same!
He once came off in Qualy at Priory/Brooklands and sat behind the barrier reading my Autosport!
