So, we're a few weeks away from the RoC. Exciting stuff I know; all those ad breaks we're going to get have got me salivating already, as does the prospect of even more circuit flaws. In terms of actual champions competing so far, we've got :
2013 WRC Champion Sebastien Ogier
2013 WEC Champion and 9 time Le Mans Winner Tom Kristensen
2013 GP2 Champion Fabio Leimer
7 time F1 World Drivers' Champion Michael Schumacher
2 time DTM Champion Mattias Ekstrom
5 time GP Motorbike Champion Mick Doohan
4 time V8 Supercar Champion Jamie Whincup (competing for his 5th next weekend)
Formula Asia and Formula V6 Asia Champion Karun Chandhok.
Then there's the other guys.......... and girl:
David Coulthard, chin model.
Susie Wolff, the root of all evil according to race fans.
Narain Karthikeyan, gherkin extrordinaire.
And newcomer who has nothing to do with motorsport, but has actually gone quicker than any of the aforementioned without the aid of an engine, Felix Baumgartner.
Sebastian Vettel is conspicuous in his absence, without him will there even be a team Germany to defend the Nations Cup? Romain Grosjean has also not signed on to defend his title of Champion of Champion. Will Schumi team up with Doohan to form some sort of over 40's super team? Is the inclusion of Baumgartner a snub to famed Hungarian ace Zsolt? Is this the weakest we've seen Team GB? If Susie Wolff wins, will it stop the never ending stream of insults? If Narain Karthikeyan wins, will I try and kill myself, thinking that it could never happen in any sane universe? Will Coulthard's chin fit in the buggy? Will it be more exciting than the F1 2013 season? By what order of magnitude would it be better if Takuma Sato showed up? Will it even go ahead following political protests in the stadium?
