A while ago, I got distracted and led everyone off-topic with a discussion where we drew parallels between the Formula One paddock and Terry Pratchett's Discworld. As entertaining as it was, the Mod Squad deleted it. Because it's a slow night in my corner of the world, I thought maybe it might be a bit of fun to do it again in its own place. If you don't know what I'm talking about, think back to the Family Guy
episode "Blue Harvest". I can't stand the show, but the basic premise was that every character filled in the role of a Star Wars
character. It's the same deal here: pick your parallel - Star Wars
, Discworld, The Simpsons
, whatever - and work out which driver or personality best fits which character.
I'm going to do Star Wars
to get the ball rolling.
Luke Skywalker - Sebastian Vettel
Darth Vader - Luca di Montezemolo
Emperor Palpatine - Max Mosley
Han Solo - Jenson Button
Chewbacca - Kimi Raikkonen
Obi-Wan Kenobi - Rubens Barrichello
Yoda - Ross Brawn
Lando Calrissian - Lewis Hamilton
Princess Leia - Nicole Scherzinger
Grand Moff Tarkin - Frank Williams
Count Dooku - Flavio Briatore
Jabba the Hutt - Bernie Ecclestone
The Empire - FIA
Rebel Alliance - FOTA
Commerce Guild - CVC
And so on.
