What F1 driver Mark Webber thinks about the Isle of Man TT

Dailies -



Driving for Red Bull-Renault in Formula One, Mark Webber is acclimatized to the speed of racing. But, watching this year’s TT along the Sulby Straight, that didn’t stop the Australian from weighing in with a frank opinion about riding fast bikes flat out around the island’s public roads. His buddy, GP3 racer Mitch Evans, just happened to be recording as John McGuinness flew by.

    It looks like you might be missing an “r” after drive in the title.

    I’d like to get a NASCAR guy out there. He’d pee his britches!

      After “peeing his britches” a NASCAR driver would wonder why they couldn’t see the whole track from one spot!

    Mark Webber flies out to watch the TT, while Vettel sits in the garage to watch soccer. Aussies do it better.

    It’s simply makes every other form of auto racing look like child’s play.
