YouTube Videos

Amusing Formula One videos that I stumble upon will be posted here, and I will continue to add videos as I find them. Videos will be uploaded to this YouTube profile.

Notice: If any videos are removed from YouTube by the FIA’s crack copyright team, they will simply be reuploaded without too much delay. These videos are for entertainment purposes obviously, so I want them to be available all the time. I’ll do my best to make sure that this is how things will always be.

It’s not too often that we catch an (ex) F1 driver mouthing off to the media. In this instance, it was Juan Pablo Montoya after he foolishly walks into a camera and then loses it on the camera man.

Here is something that you just won’t see in F1 anymore, drivers having fun in the press conference. The closest I’ve seen in the past few years has been minor giggling. Watch and laugh at the playful antics of Mika Hakkinen and Eddie Irvine.

Mark Webber did an ad for his local milk brand, Canberra Milk. In the ad, he sings a silly little jingle about his mom and his milk moustache. I don’t know anything about Canberra Milk, but I do know that Mark should never consider a singing career.

A few years ago when Montoya was driving for Williams, a deer ran across the track. When his engineers informed him over the radio, Montoya responded by saying “Oh dear!” and this led to a bit of confusion.

Mika Hakkinen makes a joke out of the interviewer’s question, but nobody laughs. It’s really bizarre that nobody in the press conference found it amusing, because fans all over the net love this moment!

Most likely from one of the weekends in Monaco. Kimi had a bit too much to drink and, well, he took a little tumble. I can only imagine how upset McLaren’s PR hounds were at this sneaky recording, as well as at Kimi.

More Mark Webber. This time our favourite Aussie makes the mistake of cursing when a camera is pointed right at him. When he sees the camera, he quickly shuts his mouth and gives the camera a wave. His fellow drivers in the room make fun of the situation.

Heikki Kovalainen exercises his legs. This is a bit of a different work out than you’d probably expect from an F1 driver. Note: This is from Heikki’s own YouTube channel. Click the video to visit it.

More Heikki. This time he stalks his trainer all over the place because he apparently doesn’t like being recorded or something along those lines. Note: This is from Heikki’s own YouTube channel. Click the video to visit it.

A television spot advertising the 2010 season earlier in the year. It features Heikki doing things that, well, you really wouldn’t expect from him. This video has a bit of a cult following online. Note: This is from Heikki’s own YouTube channel. Click the video to visit it.

Murray Walker tells the viewers why Rene Arnoux says he has difficulties driving non-turbo F1 cars. When Murray is finished explaining, James Hunt quickly offers his “colourful” opinion.

David Coulthard signs a book for a fan, showing that he’s a pretty decent guy. He then gets a laugh out of his fans at the expense of a former F1 driver. I’ll admit, I laughed along with them.

After a race in 1994 in which Jean Alesi and Michael Schumacher are in the post race press conference, Alesi has a very serious brain fart.

After suffering a DNF from the race, Taki Inoue scampers around doing, well, I’m not sure what he’s doing. What’s important though, is what happens! Generally the entire online F1 world is aware of this classic moment.

During the weekend of the 2006 Brazilian Grand Prix, Marin Brundle (for ITV at the time) approached Kimi Raikkonen on the grid who was mostly by himself while many others were paying attention to a presentation of sorts that featured Pele. Brundle approaches the Finn to see if he is phased by the fact that he is missing the soccer legend’s appearance. Note: This is from BigDave297’s YouTube channel due to his version of this video not being removed due to FIA copyrighting. Click the video to visit it.
