Appalled (not really) by the terrible oversight of Jenson Button in just letting his sporting autobiography go out without the requisite pun or play on words title, like nothing matters anymore, I thought to myself how this must never happen again.

 

So, to kick things off, here are my suggestions should any of the following choose to publish their life story to the world:

 

Alonso again, Naturally

Yes Ocon

Glittering Perez

Vandoorne Closes As Another Opens

Critical Massa

 

 

You can obviously do much better! So, channel your inner subeditor and let inspiration flow forth.

Assuming Jenson is devoting a lot of ink to his dad, "Between the Buttons" would have been neat.

If you're Alan Partridge

This is how second tier sports stars should write a book:

I wouldn't be surprised if Hamilton's post-retirement autobiography was just called Race. For a couple of obvious reasons.

These ought to be read in the desperate Alan Partridge voice when he's trying to pitch terrible ideas to the BBC's head of programming in order to save his career.

The recent book by Mansell is the greatest book Alan Partridge never wrote. It's hilarious how many times he says he bounced back. So cringy it's a must read.

Is it worse than his first volume?

As a kid I thought it was amazing. Reading it as an adult is eye opening, to say the least.

I am guessing everything is Prost's fault until Nigel designed the FW14B with his own pencil?

It's genuinely like a Partridge book, after a while I was reading it in Alan's voice in my head!

Needless to say, he had the last laugh.
