Name Vettel’s car: The Top 5 readers’ choices
Posted By: James Allen  |  24 May 2010   |  11:20 pm GMT  |  34 comments

This thread has received an incredible response in the last 24 hours with over 330 readers suggesting a name for Sebastian Vettel’s new chassis, replacing the unfortunate “Luscious Liz”, which bit the dust in Monaco.

Raja Sen’s suggestion of “Stickshift Stella” was a favourite while readers saw the funny side of Andrew’s suggestion of “Sweaty Betty”.

Furtherdown, Speed Saint 85 went down the Sonic the Hedgehog route with their suggestion of “Seb-Sonic” while Jaelle took inspiration from the Star Wars movies with her offering – “Liz II: The Revenge”.

But perhaps the name which drew the biggest reaction was Wu’s suggestion of “Webber’s Missus!”

Thanks again to all who put a suggestion forward. It was a bit of fun.

I forwarded on your suggestions, Sebastian came up with Randy Mandy, I guess we’ll find out why at some point!

    “intentionally losing control of a vehicle”

    Does that sentence make sense to you ?

    Lewis was has NOT lost control of the car !
    It follows he could have NOT done so itentionaly !
    Clearly the OZ cops see things upside down…

    1. “Lewis was has NOT lost control of the car”… does that sentence make sense to anyone?

      I think what you’re implying is that one cannot intentionally lose control of a car. I challenge that. let’s take an extreme example… I’m driving round a big and busy roundabout, and half way round I close my eyes and take my hands and feet off the controls. I do this intentionally. Am I in control of the car?

      However, with Lewis’s experience, it makes perfect sense that he was doing doughnuts and was fully in control and knew exactly where the car would be. Were the police right to punish him – of course they were, because regardless of how safe he was doing it or why, or who he is, he broke the law and that law stands for everyone.

      Ah now this reminds me of days gone by in my youth when a certain person was arrested for dangerous driving of his motorbike at 120 mph, however the magistrate agreed that the bike was well within it’s limits and the police big ears car however was being driven dangerously, it being on the edge if it’s limits.

      Of course Lewis was in control, the Oz police made the wrong charge, reckless was what they should have charged him with if the had to do anything at all apart from give him a bollocking.

    The best name for Vettel’s car, right now has to be:
    Jealous Suzy, or whatever the name, she has to be so jealous of Mark’s car, her sister.

    at comment 21, mik nailed it! Good on you. I had posted previously that it was to begin alphabetically, “m”´s turn- but dismissed Mandy thinking of Barry Manilow… Of course Randy Mandy is a consequential progression- was it Banarama that sang “Brandy makes you randy, and rum makes you…”
    Of course Sebastian “ist zu jung” für Banarama too. Ah, the circle of life…
