That is hilarious. Also the fact he doesn't know what to call it!

I'm sure he only didn't know the English, not really one of the first words you learn in a third or fourth language is it?

Good for Nico. I bet there are few others who would admit that.

Well he's not in a Red Bul...

Hilarious. Millions of pounds spent on the cars and he uses a sanitary towel to keep the sweat off.

Me too, I usually feel he tries too hard. Was nice to see him being so open.

Very funny. But not as weird as you might think. I have an uncle who is a surgeon and he (and by his admission most other surgeons) used them for the same reason. Apparently they are the most effective method of absorbing sweat.... Which makes sense considering they are designed to absorb another less pleasent fluid....


Good to see his sense of humour though. Was a great video.

Yeah that weird blue liquid in the adverts is definitely less pleasant...

If you speak to someone who has been into combat, they will probably tell you they had a few Tampons in their pocket.
Very absorbent, can be squashed into a wound and packed sterile.

From experience, tampons are also useful if you have a nosebleed that just won't quit.

This is really excellent. What an interesting and honest guy. Lewis is drab in comparison. Could you ever imagine Lewis admitting the same thing?

I don't know; I liked what Joe Saward said about drivers these days: they lack character compared to earlier generations. Rosberg has really shown some personality here, rather than hiding it underneath a public relations facade.

He looks much better with short hair. Almost didn't recognise him.
