If somebody deserves an award for merely dwelling life because the Good Lord supposed, it’s NASCAR’s Clint Bowyer. He’s probably the most unapologetic nation boy there’s, and his views on Method One, that sequence with them Eu-ro-peans over there driving spaceship automobiles that aren’t even V8s, are wonderful.
Bowyer’s views aren’t simply wonderful, really, they’re tv worthy. Each Ferrari- or Mercedes-dominated F1 race can be immediately extra entertaining with a stream of Bowyer feedback all through its entirety, to the purpose that he ought to most positively take his eventual retirement to the F1 tv sales space. Please.
Sadly, that dream will most likely by no means be realized. Bowyer doesn’t like how early these international people get up within the morning, particularly when the automobiles are so quiet you’d nearly fall again asleep.
(He didn’t particularly point out that final half about how quiet they’re, but when they ain’t loud, they ain’t racin’ onerous sufficient. Plus, we hear they run some typa V6 “hybrid” issues over there. Bless their hearts.) From USA Right now:
“I can’t even stand up early sufficient to look at them races not to mention compete in ‘em,” Bowyer stated.
Bowyer forgets that there are, in reality, time zones outdoors of the Pink, White and Blue, which might make these races go on within the afternoon and night hours the place they happen. However that’s a straightforward mistake, as a result of, like, America. It’s the one nation that issues. Completely.
Listed below are the remainder of Bowyer’s ideas on F1, emphasis ours, from USA Right now:
“It’s simply wonderful what these automobiles are able to doing, however they appear extra like spaceships than race automobiles in the event you ask me. I grew up in Kansas, we didn’t have something like that. We couldn’t even get the station that lined that, so I don’t know. And I can’t perceive the announcer that covers it anyway, so I don’t find out about that.
“I want to go to that observe that has all of the boats on it although, them large yachts. You discover me a rig like that to again as much as the observe and watch once I retire, I’ll go along with you. How about that? You’ll have to speak to all people although, I received’t have the ability to do this.”
The observe with the entire large yachts is the Monaco avenue course. Kimi Raikkonen, F1’s resident mumbler of Finnish descent, retired from the 2006 race after his automobile broke and went straight to his yacht. Maybe the 2 could possibly be pals, if Bowyer might perceive what Raikkonen was saying. (Most of us can’t both, really.)
The race commentating Bowyer can’t perceive is led by NBC Sports activities Group’s lead F1 play-by play announcer, Leigh Diffey, who known as the Monster Vitality NASCAR Cup Sequence race that Bowyer competed in at Watkins Glen Worldwide final weekend.
