For Sure Championship

Humor och F1 har en del kvar att önska. Men ibland dyker det upp små guldkorn. Just nu är det en del buzz ute på nätet om RealBrawnGP.coms “Fore Sure Championship”. Och det är bara att hålla med, det här är bra! Lika bra att klippa in texten;

For Sure Championship: Alguersuari makes his mark

By Phil Huff

As we move in to the final third of the For Sure World Championship, the chase for the trophy is hotting up, with new boy Jaime Alguersuari mounting a strong challenge to leaders Felipe Massa and Jenson Button.

Alguersuari made a great start in Hungary, using the mandated phrase ‘for sure’ no less than four times in his first F1 press conference, but faded slightly in Valencia, dropping back to just one usage, and a For Sure score therefore of 2.50.

This keeps him close to the top, though, with Felipe Massa still holding on to fist place with a score of 3.00, ahead of Jenson Button on 2.76. Special mention has to be made of Button who has dropped back slightly in recent races, failing to recapture the glory of the Monaco qualifying press conference where he said ‘for sure’ a stunning eight times.

Lewis Hamilton surprised us all by regaining his earlier form in the last two races, getting the required wording in seven times over the Hungarian and European GP weekends. However, a couple of conferences without the phrase means he’s actually dropped back slightly, dropping from 2.25 down to 2.00.

Luca Badoer, standing in for an injured Felipe Massa, must be disappointed with his performance, scoring no points at all during his pre-race press conference. Likewise, Heikki Kovalainen, whilst not getting the same opportunities as team mate Hamilton, is failing to make as much as he can from the chances provided.

“A dip in performance from all drivers between Turkey and Germany was worrying,” said F1 language consultant Elaine Conedoff, “but getting Button back in the conferences for Hungary seemed to revitalise the field. They know what they’re up against!”

F1’s language standards adjudicator, Major Nameup, is less impressed with results of late. “We were encouraged by the dip during the early summer months, but Jenson Button continues to undermine our efforts to outlaw the use of the words ‘for’ and ‘sure’ when placed together unnecessarily in a sentence, and is very nearly at the limit for the season. A penalty looks increasingly likely. At the end of the day, I go home.”

    Kul med lite nytänkande i branchen. Förr var det “honestly” som gällde. Mikael Schumacher var den obestridlige mästaren på detta och måste ha snittat 10-20 “Honestly” per presskonferens… 🙂

    Citat från Vettel angående motorrasen:
    “For sure from now onwards we cannot have any mistakes or failures again,” Vettel commented. “That’s for sure.”

    Nu har jag börjat se dom två orden överallt i F1 intervjuer.. störande 😛

    “You know” är oxå ganska omtyckt bland förarna..
    Fast självaste MR. “You know” kör ju inte längre.. Juan Pablo Montoya
